'Woulda coulda shoulda', right?

Wrong!

You're dead wrong if you think that all backup software is so geeky and complicated that it excuses you from backing up the stuff most dear to your heart: favorite music files, precious pictures, love letters, those emails from your little college freshman, and your novels-in-the-making.

Not to mention all of those resumes, cover letters, job-application tips & snippets, presentations, data spreadsheets, business correspondences, eBooks, flyer templates... the list goes on.

Sure, it would be great if everyone was comfortably familiar with full-suite backup software, but not everyone is cut out to that sphere of geekdom. If you've hesitated to back up your priceless data files because you think it's a complicated project - if not an outright nightmare - then hesitate no more, TK8 Backup Professional is here!

TK8 Backup Professional is quick, and most importantly, easy to use. Not only will TK8 Backup Professional make a safe, compressed copy of your precious data files, it will also back up your contact lists and emails from Outlook and Outlook Express or any other Windows-based email program.

In addition, TK8 Backup Professional can be set to backup your data files "incrementally and/or differentially", i.e., it will append new files to your previously backed up data, and make any necessary updates to existing files.

Best of all, TK8 Backup Professional can be set to do all of this automatically and on the periodic basis you choose: daily, weekly, monthly, etc.

Tomasz Lisowski How about supporting Unicode in the file names? Has it been implemented? I am especially interested in the support for Polish "special" characters (acelnószz and the coresspondeing capital letters)

Tonis Kask Hi Tomasz! Polish should work fine as those special characters are not requiring unicode but a specialized character set.. We have plenty of users in Poland so take a look. Unicode support is somewhere far in the future, unfortunately.

Tomasz Lisowski OK. Does setting the code page affect the DISPLAY of the filenames only, or the entire string handling abilities of the software?

I understand, that after setting the Polish code page I can have Polish filenames displayed correctly, but some other languages may be displayed using some garbled characters ... I guess I can live with that.

My concern is, if I make a backup of some files, whose names use different languages, I can have them also garbled, when I do a restore. Please confirm, if the files are restored to their original filenames, regardless of the display code page set in the program.

disenchanted I noticed that the licensing is "Per User".

So I assume that this software c be installed on more than one computer?
Like maybe a desktop and a laptop?

Between the computers in my family, we have 3 desktops and 1 laptop.
How many licenses would I need to cover the 3 desktops and 1 laptop?

Thanks in advance.

Chris @ disenchanted

1 if just you are going to use it, but if your whole family are going to use it then you need one for each family member.

Mustang No updates since November 2013; is there any future development of this application planned?

Tonis Kask We do have a roadmap, but as the current build is very stable and the program is not lacking of features, there is nothing much we could add for the perfect file backup software. If you have any ideas, let us know.

Dropbox support would be nice.

Tomasz Lisowski In my opinion, the Unicode support nowadays is a MUST. We are dealing with people from all parts of the world, so the support for characters from more than one code page is necessary. Moreover, I didn't get a reply to my question about the correctness of the restore, if filenames are spelled in different languages ...

I presume, your software isn't written in .NET, as then you'd get it virtually for free :)

Tonis Kask Hi Mustang! What do you mean by Dropbox support? At the moment you can both collect the data from the Dropbox and store it elsewhere, and you can also gather data from anywhere and store the backup in Dropbox (what I personally do, for example).

Tonis Kask Hi Thomasz! Unfortunately indeed adding unicode support requires a complete rewrite, which, at declining utility sales (for everyone globally) and in the age of 1.99 apps and (good) online services isn't justified. The filename correctness depends from the code page and there is no infinite answer. In most cases, weird characters between code pages can be mixes just fine. And if the backup is restored in the same system, everything will be retained as it was at the moment backed up. For example, characters from Estonian code page (ä, ö, ü, õ, etc) can be mixed quite well with Polish characters (a, l, e, etc.). At least last time we tested. But mixing those with Russian characters (?, ?, ?, ?, etc) doesn't play well indeed. And vice versa - with Russian code page set, Russian file names are stored correctly. So if the unicode is a requirement for you, I would strongly suggest you to take a look at some other utility.

Tonis Kask Hi Thomasz! As you can see, the character examples I included in my reply (common characters in those languages) cannot be shown here as well, although unicode is handled quite well by browsers and underlying technologies ;)

Tomasz Lisowski Thanks, Toni. TK8 Backup Professional looks indeed as quite a good software most end-users. I wish you all the best, despite the sales decline ...
