Genie Backup Manager Professional is a uber-powerful backup tool with a strong feature set that can perform almost any backup task.
The install went fine on my PC, completing in around a minute. After accepting all of the install options, my PC required a reboot.
Feature Set
The feature list is spearheaded by a surprising support for formats. USB, FTP, CD, DVD, BRD and also tape drives for businesses.
Starting backups is very simple. You can choose scheduled or ready-when-you-are backups, and the easy UI allows for presets of your documents, etc to be backed up automatically. You can also define folders for backup, as well as a large list of email clients to back up from.
Your backups are also protected by optional encryption, and can also be compressed to various levels.
Setting up backups is really simple. There is a wizard to walk users through the process, along with plenty of hand-holding as it guides you through where to save files and which ones to back up, along with many presets. At these screens you can also choose how to encrypt/compress your files. There are also ways to back up files that you may not think of, eg. the Windows Registry for recovery after bad software installs.
Peace of Mind
Along with the software comes a 21-day money-back guarantee, plus free upgrades for a year.


It is a good product, perfect for backing up vital data.
