    After a software update, our password no longer works. We can no longer access our data. I reported this about a week ago, posted report on website, sent email, left messages on their answering machine. I did receive an automated reply, saying I would get a response within 24 hours, but nothing for DAYS. Valuable time wasted, need to back up data.

    Is this company still in business? I am concerned that I paid money for backup, but have no way to access my data, and no way to update my

    I’ve been using Safecopy Backup for about 2 years. Uploading files is fairly straightforward and quick. However the Search Your Files option stopped working several months ago. I know my files are there as I can find them if I do an exhaustive search through the Browse Recent files option. However I have thousands of files so this isn’t practical. The biggest problem I have is that it seems impossible to reach a person to discuss this situation. I must leave an email and their response time is poor. I’ve called over a dozen times on different dates and have never gotten through to a person. They appear to communication solely by email so if you ever need a file quickly and can’t find it, you’re basically out of luck.

    This is the most effective and stable online backup product I have ever used. Mozy was problematic and I tossed out Carbonite almost the minute I installed the trial version. I backup every critical computer with an external hard drive as a system backup using BouceBack Ultimate. That is for computer disaster recovery but it will not help if the office burns down or equipment is stolen. I use SafeCopy to backup all of my critical data files as well as pictures and videos.

    I thought there was a 200MB file limit as well, but that is not the case. The upload limit defaults to 200MB but you can increase the limit in the Backup Configuration using the Advanced button. The selection is a bit obscure and you must type in your limits. I typed in 6000 and it is now backing up files up to 5.9GB and that fact is stated on the configuration screen where it used to say 200MB. Since the largest single file on any of my computers is 5GB (thankfully only a few, like outlook PST archive files), that is the perfect setting.

    On one system I occassional must reinstal the software and the automatic reinstallation does not work. I kept a download of the installation file so reinstalling is not difficult but it requires a reboot. The machine with the problem is XP SP 3.0 and is used as a file server, so a reboot can be stressful. Notheless as far as online backup goes, I would rate this product a 9 but I could go to 10 if I did not have the reinstall issue and the occasional “Internal server error”.

    I use this product and there a few things I would like to add.

    Pros:
    IPhone support
    Inexpensive
    easy to operate (up to a point, will explain below)
    Photosharing
    all the ones in the article

    Cons:
    Files larger than 200 meg not automatically backed up. Requires a manual selection.

    Log files don’t work comes back with a access denied error message (2 versions of code)

    Slowwwww backup

    Conclusion:
    Good product, tried several different ones but each one was missing something. This product seemed to fill all my needs as a plain user. I went with the 200Gig option.

    BUT with the log files not working there is no way to tell what files were not backed up either due to an issue or because of the 200 meg limit. Yep I had to manually go through my directories to start a backup of each file. Then again it is one of the cheaper options out there.
