Recent statement
--- I am developing jaBuT 32 bit only because to compile it in 64 bit too it would be cost a bunch of money to get a proper developer licence ---

jaBuT Backup is now 32 bit and 64 bit due to some licence changes.

When I first found jaBuT I liked it and thought it was working, until I realized that it stops working every time you sleep/wake your computer unless you manually restart it. unfortunately I realized that after I needed to recover files I thought it was baking up.

I reported this to the developer to learn that jaBuT is made this way by design. No backup program I have ever used [besides this one] is made to stop working when you sleep your computer, and I was not expecting that behavior at all.

For me I have moved to Backup4Sure and am quite happy with it, and unlike jaBuT it has actually saved my files when I needed it to save my files.

That said I still think jaBuT is a decent program for the right tasks, though I would be very hesitant to ever trust it again. It's always hard to trust again after you've been burned, especially when you've found something that works for you.

USBFlashCopy v1.16

billon on 26 Sep 2020
  • 302KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Sep 2020
  • Suggested by guinness

USBFlashCopy backs up/synchronizes from external storage on the fly. The program runs in the background and copies all or select files from inserted media to a destination of your choice. Includes available copy throttle speed, minimum free space check to avoid filling up your drive, file filters, and can even be set to only copy from selected drives (by serial number).

New drives plugged in are prompted for a new copy profile and transfers include a progress bar. Ideal for people who do much of their work on remote computers and need to automate the process of backing up their files.

Functional in 64-bit. Note that fully transparent operations (no user notification; runs entirely in background) are only available in the registered version.

Same with me, doesn't work from the stick.

billie on 2009-03-14 07:57

nothing comes close to rsync. Go check it out then you'll agree.

Mixture on 2012-09-18 21:48

I have used version 2.2.1 for years and have had no problems at all.
Lucas, PeZett, Midas, Meks: Sorry to hear you cannot work Toucan.
billie: 'nothing comes close to rsync' ON YOUR PC, you mean. I have no need to go to another backup program. Good luck with your rsync software.
