Personal Backup Review

Sven Sorensen
Free personal backup software with FTP and sFTP support
A review of Personal Backup by Sven Sørensen

We all know that making backups of your data is very important, especially when hard drives can crash at any time.. but many of the solutions available are rather expensive. Not the case with Personal Backup.

Personal Backup is a very comprehensive backup solution offered by a German developer. It includes many of the excellent features you would expect in more expensive software such as backing files and folders up on a schedule.

One of the great things with Personal Backup is that you can automatically create backups of your filesystem and upload them to an FTP server, or secure FTP server if you wish.

This backup app comes with 8 different modes for backing up; one of the more used options is that which creates backups of office files.

Scheduling backups is rather simple and you may opt to perform the backup routine at a specific scheduled time.

Overall, this is an excellent freeware application and highly recommended to anybody who stores important data and regularly needs to back that data up.

Personal Backup features and highlights:
  • Wizard for the creation of new backup tasks
  • Unlimited number of configurable backup tasks
  • Backup of complete directory structures
  • Start backup on demand or run automatically
  • Backup via FTP (optionally with proxy and FTPS (FTP over SSL))
  • Exclude selectable directories temporarily from backup
  • Placeholders for destination path and external programs
  • Mail delivery settings
  • Option for deletion of security copies older than a given time
  • PbRestore to restore files from alternating schedules
  • Up to 16 automatic tasks

Personal Backup is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from backup software without restrictions. Personal Backup is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
