I have my doubts regarding how "portable" this program is. I know it's popular...but portable...not so sure. I decided to try running it in a sandbox (Sandboxie). It wouldn't even install in the sandbox. Makes me think this program is trying to install a driver and sandboxie is stopping it. If so, then it's not portable in my sense of the word.

Dave: Many programs that have access to system areas and require admin rights are difficult to effectively virtualize by Sandboxie or other programs.

I really wanted to try this but it kept crashing on Vista.. I guess I'm stuck with Clonezilla (not such a bad thing, actually)

Hello and thank you for your feedback.
- not available
The download server was offline for serveral time. The server is again online since yesterday.
I'm sorry for that.

- the green ticks
The green ticks are only an indicator. They do not have any function right now.
If you can not save a profile, in general this means something isn't set or the source directory is identical to the destination directory.

These settings are at least mandatory to get a working profile:
- Profile type Express
- Source and destination directory set
- The profile name

If you still have the green ticks, please open the updater (menu ? or F1) and download the updated version.
There are also some litte less important tweaks in the new version which is coming this evening (german time UTC+1 ~8 PM).
The ticks have been removed for the moment because they are not working correctly.

I am really sorry for this problems. I'll do my best to get all this working. For the moment the version coming this evening works fine.
I'll investigate the timestamp problem too before releasing the update this evening.

All feedback is welcome and I'll always read everything to make you a good piece of software =)

Download the manual (zmanual, not zguide) and checkout Example 25 from Appendices section.

Thanks.

Zback copies Folder Properties, which most backup software does not, according to numerous tools I've tested. For that reason alone I can forgive the rather clunky UI. Love it :)

Back4Sure v3.7.3 Updated

billon on 6 Nov 2016
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Nov 2016
  • Suggested by guinness

Back4Sure is a feature-rich backup solution for typical backup use. The program can make a backup to hard-disk, USB drive or network and can also be compressed using high or low compression settings to a ZIP or 7-zip file of various compression levels, as well as encrypted for security.

Other features include filters to backup or exclude specific file types, a cleanup mode to remove old archives, and creation of one or multiple zip files (separated by directory structure). Backups are saved by directory structure either inside the archive or inside the directory for easy restoring. Users can also use multiple settings profiles, or "job" files.

Technomancer: if you mean the entry is unclear, please let us know in forums. If you mean the program itself (and for the RAR distro issue) you might want to contact the developer directly.

ihateyou on 2013-12-15 18:36

what you should know:
Cleanup is optional - it is very close related to an incremental backup.
Using this you have to select the same Target Directory as before to backup only changed files and to delete files on the backup that have been deleted on the original file system as well (the latter one is the actual Cleanup).

Hope it helps ;)

romulous on 2015-01-11 06:52

It's a crying shame that you can only backup folders with this tool, and not individual files within those folders (yes, I know you can set filters, but unless you know in advance what files you want from each folder, this is not practical to use).

I hate to be one of those guys, but: "it works for me"

This is one ugly app though.

Although it has a somewhat confusing interface, once learned, it's been the most reliable and easy-to-setup program I've used of this type. Perfect for copying/updating files to multiple directories that are all over the place.
