CB is very much improved since v3, and is improving all the time, and it’s FREE… Acronis is not! Which features do you find it lacks, please discuss in this thread so they can read & we can discuss… they do take note of suggestions.
At the end of a backup it shows a green check-mark + Done even if there where error’s in the above logging.
Can this be changed to ‘Finished with errors’ and maybe an orange warning icon?
This will give the user a better hint to the fact that there were errors during the backup.
A thing Syncback does is repeat the error lines at the end of the log so the user doesn’t have to scroll trough all the ‘non-error’ lines.
One could also mark lines with errors in the front with a Red X icon so it sticks out more.
Also below the progress marker it shows “The backup process has been completed successfully” even if there where errors during the backup?!
I’d make that “The backup process has been completed with errors”.
If you ran a backup and did not specify a log file then it would be nice if the GUI would have a ‘Save Log’ option so you still can decide to save the log.
After Step4 is done, before pressing ‘Finish’.
I run an Incremental backup Files+Simple Copy.
Now I run a second incremental backup and cause a folder in the source to be inaccessible (CIS Block files) then the files in those folders get deleted from the destination??
Am I missing something? why would this be deleting files in the destination?
It’s incremental backup it should ‘only add changed files in the source’ to the destination right?
Deleting files in the destination suggests some form of ‘synchronization’ in my point of view.
why is comodo so reluctant on creating a rescue disc,alot more people would use comodo backup if it had this feature.i believe you are keeping alot of users away because of this.this has been suggested as a feature since the beginning.
these two features is what I am talking about…rescue disk and startup recovery…plus since CTM is no longer available… if there is one time snapshot return (try n decide what they called in acronis) I will be happy…
I am using both acronis 2011 and comodo backup since v4
Just in case you didn’t notice, the compression level defaults to “Low”. I’m pretty sure it’s set that way for better speed… but if smaller size is your goal, then there are three more aggressive compression levels.
