Back4Sure v3.7.7

billon on 7 Jun 2020
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Jun 2020
  • 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.

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable version" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Back4Sure.exe.
What's new? Fixed:
  • A bug that deletes the local backup in case the source drive is not mounted.
  • Error where in rare cases a warning about canceling a running backup appears, while the backup is already done.

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.

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 ;)

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).

Better report your problems at the forum, the developer usually responds to bug reports and other issues. Of course you are not dumb. Did you change the initial location of StackNotes folder- it remembers the location of the last used file.

Software is certified by SoftPedia as beeing "Clean of virus, spywares, adwares". The reason why it was reported as beeing "potentially malicious" at SourceForge was due to the AES encryption command line tool included with the package. This tool is no more distributed with the package and can optionnaly be downloaded from the "AES Crypt" website if needed. You can post questions, requests or discuss anything on the forum here : https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22131.

Never really portable. I used to use it many years.

I like it. Program is fast to launch (less than 2 seconds), is responsive and does the job to quickly kill frozen apps.

Download link is dead.

DL-ed it- Used it- Loved it
It's Irreplaceable

The only problem for me is it's bookmark feature
I'd say Comic Viewer is better when it comes to Bookmarking
