complicated to set up for inexperienced users. needs to have a drag and drop style way to include folders like a disk burning utility does

Worked better than the basic backup provided by Linux Mint's default installation - which failed to backup or even indicate a capacity to backup. This worked well and moved 26GB in 44 min over a standard USB hub connected to an external linked drive

Very useful program. It took a little while to understand it, but now I am successfully using it for my daily and weekly back-ups.

Works well, but didn't exclude the files/folders as foreseen in the syncjob

Luckybackup, where have you been all my life? This is exactly the kind of backup I always wanted but never found on windows. Simple and fast, took me like 30 sek to start backing up. I have been using Cobian Backup before and never used it because it was just a pain.

Flexible and extremely efficient. Great program and it works in Mint 17.3, which GRSync does not.

Will not recognize devices connected as MTP such as a smartphone. Since backing up certain data on a smartphone is so important (without synching everything to Google -- blecch), I consider this a serious flaw. I am not sure what alternative program can backup MTP devices, and my Linux won't recognize my phone as USB mass storage.

Рез.архивирование - важная вещь. Автоматизация процесса - не менее важна.

Really quirky and in need of polish.

I don't think the authors have missed a single possible feature one could wish for. And it is documented so well !!

It’s a kinda swiss army’s backup tool. Although it needs some understanding, it covers all use cases from the beginner’s (in the basic configuration) to the specific needs of a nerd (with a fine-tuned configuration).

Good tool. Can be confusing to set up, but once it's done, backing up is super easy.

OK, but needs a folder in specified in the destination
