Langmeier Backup becomes net winner
With an excellent rating could come up with the Langmeier Backup 8 Advanced. The editors of Netzsieger awarded the Swiss company's software 4.65 points out of a possible 5.
Numerous features convinced the testers of the quality of the program. For example, the user can create file backups or images of the data medium during operation, not only from the PC, but also from physical or virtual servers. This option makes Langmeier Backup particularly interesting for freelancers or companies of all sizes. Not only complete drives including the operating system, but also individual files or e-mails can be backed up, sorted chronologically and protected with a password. This is a feature that only a few backup programs have. Hard disks, USB storage devices, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray or the network can be used as storage media. If backed up to bootable media, the computer can be easily restored even if the hard drive or operating system fails.
Testers also liked how Langmeier Backup 8 Advanced works smoothly with Microsoft's latest Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems, but it's also backwards compatible up to Windows XP. Netzsieger confirmed the software's rock-solid performance values, the backups are created in a reasonable amount of time and run in the background. The actual work of the user is neither affected by noticeably longer loading times nor by jerky graphics.
The testers gave great praise for the user-friendliness of the software. The intuitive user interface is designed so clearly that even inexperienced users can create their first backup without difficulty. The files to be backed up are simply marked with a check mark in the menu. Various other features, such as backing up mails, libraries or browser favorites, can also be easily found by navigating through the menus. Fully automated backups are quickly executed with the help of a schedule, the testers of Netzfinder were convinced of the exact execution. If desired, the user can have a log sent to him and check the backup for errors with a check. Another positive extra is the clean-up function, which can be used to clean up old backups.
The support via e-mail or in the support forum is also rated positively. As a small shortcoming, the testers rate only the chargeable telephone support.
In conclusion, Netzsieger rates Langmeier Backup 8 Advanced as an all-round worry-free backup package for private users.
