Fab's AutoBackup 4 Tech
[AutoBackup 4]


Even if it is still very easy to use, this version is
mostly designed for professionals (like computer repair shops) who need to backup data for serveral users accounts at once or to save data from unbootable computers. Like Fab's AutoBackup 3, it makes the backup and restore tasks easier. Data handled are stuff like emails, documents and much more.

There are two major evolutions from Fab's AutoBackup 3 :

- Up to 20 users account handled at once (no need to log in / log off, switch user account and do it again).
- Other hard drives than the current system drive can be selected. This feature was available in Fab's AutoBackup 2 PE edition but was missing in Fab's AutoBackup 3. Many people asked for it, so it is back now. It can be integrated to a BART PE/UBCD4WINboot CD with a PEBuilder plugin available.

This version is the technician's best friend.

IMPORTANT : If Outlook PST files are stored elsewhere than the default location, they are not found automatically. You would have to use the built-in search function to get them. To save time, do not forget to ask your customers if they did something like that. Those who did would know.

GoHighVoltage Review:

"This is by far the best tool anyone can use to back up what is important. Very easy to use, and highly recommended. If you have a single user computer, or a computer with multiple users, there is NO other software available that can match Fab's Autobackup!"
