3 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

4 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

4 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.

5 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.

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

3 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.

5 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).

5 Great gui front-end for rsync & cron. Simple to use & performs backups fast. Easy scheduling. Super user run available (which I use to maintain a backup of my entire home directory). I use this rather than the Backup Tool that comes with Linux Mint 16, using their tool only for software selection backup.

5 In my book, the best backup (not imaging) app. Great if you, for example, have a backup of your music folder on another hard drive. If you just add some folders to your source folder, LuckyBackup only copies the added files.

3 Lots of options, however, it would not allow to select destination from network drive or hidden file/folder, which may be a mounted NAS. Grsync works with network drives.

4 Works fast and well. But not very user-friendly nor eye-candy. i have got a problem with the deleting files on the destination : it doesn't works when the check box is on. Too bad, it's exactly the feature i'm looking for!...
