Surprise-free setup and clean interface
The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer to download any third-party products and it only lasts a few seconds. Once you complete it, you are brought to a minimal and well-organized interface, as it consists of a menu bar, a navigation panel, a few buttons and a pane in which to display details and information.
Extensive Help contents are provided and, as a result all types of users can find their way around it, regardless of their previous experience with the IT world.
Methods of creating backups
There are several types of backup jobs you can choose from, such as drive imaging, data replication, ZIP 64-bit compression and SQL or e-mail backup. Regardless of the one you choose, you are required to go through an installation wizard which enables you to set up details such as source directory, destination location, schedule on which to repeat the operation, name and short description.
Create reports, recover and restore your data
It is possible to monitor the backup process, as well as create reports along with the number or errors, data usage information, start and end time, job name, label and computer. Event logs can be displayed in the main window, along with error level, date, event and category.
In addition to that you can create a bootable media that can be used in order to perform system recoveries, while you can also restore all the data present in a previously created backup.
To sum up, BackupAssist is a pretty useful piece of software when it comes to protecting your system from sudden data loss by enabling you to back up, restore and recover your files. The response time is good, yet the CPU and memory usage tends to be a bit high at certain occasions. The interface is accessible to all user categories and we did not register any errors or bugs.
