1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't even work on my XP box 23 July 2009
By The Evil Doctor VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I hate moaning about software, because generally its not helpful, but in this case I don't have a choice. Nero BackItUp & Burn just will not execute on my XP SP3 box. It installs fine, but crashes when I try to open it. My machine is only recently formatted so there's nothing to corrupt the install. I've also downloaded the 100Mb update from Nero's web site, and that won't run either.
On top of this, as a commercial package it is shameful to see the option to install the Ask toolbar into your browser as part of this product's installation, when it is neither related nor helpful. If I want crapwear on my PC I'll go get it myself thanks Nero.
Also, the actual 'Burn' part of the software is simply Nero Express. Very basic stuff that comes with most CD burners, although useful as a freebie.
If you need backup software, get the free Microsoft SyncToy 2.0 tool and use that instead. It works well and can be scheduled using the Windows Scheduler. Nero is a huge disappointment in this case, especially from such a well recognized name in the industry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, If Over Simplfied 3 Aug 2009
By AHW Rea
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been using another company's backup software for a year or so and got used to its peculiarities. Which were manifold.

This offering is substantially better than anything I've tried before.

Starting with installation-on my system, the software wanted to download a couple of patches before loading, which was fine and took around 3 minutes. From then on in, installation took around 5 minutes and required minimal user input. The process did hang once, but a quick random mouse click woke it up again and all went well.

I backup to a USB external hard drive. I also use that drive for other stuff. If you do this too, be aware that Nero will reformat the entire drive before starting to back up onto it. It does warn you before doing it, but I'd suggest copying anything valuable onto another device first and copying back to the external drive when Nero's done its thing.

Initially, the software just copies everything, a process which took around 45 minutes on my fairly new PC. After that, it backs up at 2 hour and end of day intervals. I found that a bit disconcerting, being used to on-the-fly back up. You can fiddle with the backup regime to an extent, but I've not found a way of getting the instant backup I was used to.

The structure of the backed-up files is, unusually, a mirror of the file structure on the source PC. Many backup utilities screw around with file structures; making finding individual files a lengthy and frustrating experience. Not so with this product.

Being a Nero product, there is a burn-to-cd/dvd facility as well. This works well, but I rarely backup to that sort of media, and I'm not sure it is of great value.

By C. A. Austin VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really like Nero's user interface: it's attractive, seems intuitive and keeps geek-speak to the minimum. I was given this product shortly after I'd bought Acronis True Image to back up my system to an external drive - well peeved, thinking I could have saved my money, I installed Nero on my Mum's computer (Windows XP) to see how it performs.

My hopes of an easy, friendly backup facility were instantly dashed! The installation is a nuisance - why should I have to install a new installer, reboot, and then find the program's added unwanted browser 'helpers', which have nothing to do with backing up? After kicking the cat in annoyance (only joking - but I did need a cup of calming tea), I returned to Mum's machine to check out the utility.

It was rubbish! I'm so disappointed - but very glad I chose Acronis for my own backups. As far as I can see (and I did try!), this software simply doesn't do what it promises. It can't create a complete, bootable system clone. By recording an image, and then making a full C:\ backup, I did manage to approximate it. Then I scheduled incremental backups (or so I thought), to update backups of any changed files every night. The program hung while I was doing this.

Having finally been told by Nero that the nightly update was scheduled, I returned the next day - to find Mum's computer in a state of shock. It was so frozen, I had to reboot it using the power button. The restart was interesting, as it turned out, because I was not offered the option to boot from F:\ (my own machine has had this option since the day I installed Acronis). So, if her internal drive had crashed, I would not have been able to revive it from the external copy.

Nero did, however, say it had done the increments.

1.0 out of 5 stars Now de-installed 29 July 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As an information security professional, I frequently remind people of the need for good backups. With this product I had hoped that it would be a simple job to manage my own backups, in a secure and reliable manner, on my own desktop computer home.

In order to make a fair comparison, I have looked at this product on a WD 320 Gbyte hard drive Western Digital My Passport Essential 320GB USB Portable External Hard Drive which I recently bought from Amazon.(I haven't written a review on this drive as so many others have and they seem to think is it as good buy - I concur; the WD 320 Gbyte hard drive is excellent.)

The software that I have used for comparison is that which is pre-installed on the WD drive. This is the WDSynch software by Dmailer. Similar software is also found on LaCie drives.

Now the comparison:

The first test was a backup of my hard drive. I am, naturally, concerned that a failure of my hard drive would cause me no end of pain, so I wanted a bootable image (which is provided by the Nero software - it comes up as a small Linux system) from which I could re-create my hard drive. To backup the hard drive (using 128 bit AES encryption - as provided in the Nero software) took over 5 hours for about 70 Gbytes. During the whole of this time, the software claimed that I had about 90 minutes left to run. Eventually, the backup was complete. I booted from the DVD bootable disk that I had made, but couldn't get it find the external hard drive where I had created my backup. Maybe there is something wrong with my configuration, but I don't usually have problems.

Not a good start.
