Backup4all Professional is an award-winning backup program for Windows that has been installed and used on the International Space Station and the company behind it have been going for 17 years, so it comes with a fairly excellent reputation.
Backup4all Professional works by protecting your all your valuable data from either partial or total loss by automating all your backup tasks, and using high grade password protection and automatically compressing it all to save valuable storage space.
One of the major features of Backup4all Professional is that it can also help protect data against such nefarious online threats as WannaCry, and other malicious Ransomware. By extension it therefore also helps protect against other malware such as viruses, by having the option to backup your data to online storage facilities, such as Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Amazon Cloud, for example.
Backup4all Professional also allows you to backup to local and network drives. And of course there’s support for SSL encryption, as well as backup solutions for CD/DVD/Blu-ray and other removable media such as USB etc.
Backup4all Professional can also backup open/locked files and has the nifty automatic ability to perform full, differential, incremental, mirror and smart backups.
While perhaps not aimed at inexperienced users, Backup4all is a good tool for anyone who wants to be safe in the knowledge that their backups are in good hands.Advanced features such as being able to set file filters and schedule automatic backup executions should prove welcome for professional users.
Examining what files have been changed since the last backup or reading the statistics about the next backup execution are fully accessible and can provide a world of discernible data to inform and analyze your back up procedures.
The interface is reasonable easy to navigate, and can be viewed either through a context menu, or a tree view.
Backup4all Professional also comes fully loaded with ZIP64 support and creates standard zip files letting you access them with any zip compatible utility. As you would expect, Backup4all Professional uses all the different flavors of AES Encryption, namely 128,192, and 256-bit, and also allows for block backups.
Backup4all Professional also makes keeping track of backups a straightforward affair. Backups are tracked and restoring any version or any part of a file or folder easy to do.
Backup4all Professional also tests backup files automatically so that you know you are not backing up into thin air, and that any issues are identified so that you know your data is safe and backups have been executed.
Email notifications also mean you can be remote from the backup process and have early warning in the event of emergencies.
Finally, Backup4all Professional has its own built in CD/DVD burning support, and works on the following versions of Windows: 10/8/7/Vista/2008/XP.
