What are people saying about CloudBerry Backup

Techtoysavvy Cool! I believe I orginally asked for this deal.
Will the deal apply to other versions as well, like the server version?
Jan 19 2012 at 1:12pm Copy Link
MSP360 No, currently it is only for the desktop version. But you can contact us directly and we will see what we can offer.
CloudBerry Lab - Jan 19 2012 at 10:42pm Copy Link
Techtoysavvy Sure. I will send email. I was trying to download the offered trial version and I had problems. You may want to check the downloads. I tried on different computers, differe browsers and at work and home. Download was not working.

Sven Meschinzky Hello, is this the same product as on the homepage or is this a special edition limited to Amazon S3? because the description here is only talking about Amazon S3 while the product on their homepage supports a variety of other solutions.

MSP360 Yes, this is exactly the some product as on the home page with all the other cloud options and local backup support. Thanks for asking!

Stephane M @Andy Mandy


I have 2 questions:

The policy tab here says that upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for the lifetime of the product but in your FAQ we can read that we pay onetime fee of $29.99 (US) to CloudBerry Lab which includes one year free updates and email support.
So are the updates/upgrades just for 1 year or for the lifetime of the product?

And I would like to confirm that we can install it on 2 computers as stated in the policy here because your FAQ states that If we want to run it on two computers we need to buy two licenses.

Thank you!

Eike L SInce i already bought multiple licenses earlier today i hope the information on this page is actually accurate. Massive differences between the info on bitsdujour and the homepage would be a quite a bummer.

MSP360 We have just extended the code by a few hours. Sorry about that.
CloudBerry Lab - Jan 22 2012 at 9:31pm Copy Link
MSP360 @Stephane M,

1) When you make a purchase at $29,99 (or $14,99 today) you are eligible for 1 year free upgrades, but we have not been able to enforce that for the last three years and our customers benefit from free upgrades. We do plan to make paid upgrades in the future but no firm plans yet.

If you think of it you can't get MS Office 2003 and then get Office 2007 and 2011 for free. Sorry.

2) If you use the software for private purposes you can install it on two computers.

Techtoysavvy Good software. It is working just fine for me so far. Incremental and continuous updates seem to be working. The total data transferred on changed pst files is small. Next I will use it to back up SQL Server databases.

BitsDuJour Admin - Feb 7 2012 at 6:04am Copy Link
Thriftslut To evaluate the potential usefulness of this program, BitsDuJour users need to know what is meant by "Amazon S3 cloud storage".

Does this refer to the server space that Amazon rents to developers and others who want to store items on the cloud? Obviously, the software would then be useful only to someone who has or will have such an account.

Or -- Happy Day! -- might it also refer to the free 5GB of storage that every Amazon customer has recently been given? In this case, Cloudberry Online Backup would really be a killer app, given the current, relatively unsophisticated nature of the free Amazon customer cloud space system.

Can you illuminate this for us? Will the software back items up to the Amazon customer free cloud space?
Jun 24 2012 at 10:30am Copy Link
MSP360 Hi,

Our software is designed for those who have Amazon S3 accounts already and new users who are eligible for their free offer. As you correctly mentioned new users can get up to 5GB of free storage.

It worth mentioning that in addition to Amazon S3 we support other storage providers such as Windows Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Rackspace cloud files, and a few other S3 and OpenStack compatible storage.

Chintan Karnik I was at the cloud expo in nyc earlier this month and got a chance to compare notes with others re: security and backups. For my vote I would highly recommend the cloudberry server edition for those of you who manage your own windows vps, or dedicated servers online.

@CloudBeery Lab - Please also include a discounted server edition license in this offer.

Looking forward to picking up a desktop license nonetheless.

LU Hello Andy.

I was almost ready to purchase this software from your website because you say it offers a lifetime upgrade here. However, I am not going to nock the soon to come free offer through Bitsdujour, but I am somewhat confused about the upgrade policy if purchased later.

You state here, the upgrades will be free for the lifetime of the product. However, your website pages state different.

Please look at this page: http://www.cloudberrylab....backup-faq

Will you let me know which policy is correct, so I can make a better decision?
Jun 24 2012 at 8:16pm Copy Link
MSP360 Hi @Lifetime Upgrades,

We have been offering life time upgrades for a long time and we still don't restrict it. However we are going to start charging for upgrades after the first year.

All in all, you should expect paid upgrades, in a first year. Just think of it , you are getting a very sophisticated piece of software for free, you also getting free upgrades for the first year and now you want us to take the obligation to provide you with the free upgrades for the rest of the life??

CloudBerry Lab - Jun 24 2012 at 10:56pm Copy Link
MSP360 Hi @Chintan Karnik,

we have a policy where the desktop license owner can upgrade to the server version at $50. The full price for the server version is $79,99. All giveaway participants are eligible.

Charlotte Sinclaire What are WHS2011 or WHS v1 and why might someone need them? I am just looking at this as a backup program (assuming I want to use one of the services it works with). I don't know what the other licenses are for and need to know if they are something I'd have to get later or deal with at some point and for what reason. Thanks.
Jun 27 2012 at 9:07am Copy Link
Mike Y @Charlotte WHS2011 or WHS stands for Windows Home Server. Some people use a Server at their home as a centralized file storage/file server device. Using CloudBerry Server edition you can back up that server to the cloud.

However, that's not required to use this. You can just back up a single PC.

@CloudBerry...what is the process for getting the Windows Home Server edition? I've downloaded the desktop version but not sure if I should install or wait for an upgrade coupon?

Phred E Why the 'Berry' in your product's name? Can I assume that it works best with BlackBerry devices and is fudged and shoved into shape to work with everything else? That's the first impression I got.
If not, why in the blue blazes would you append a major tech ecosystem's name to your product.
Are you aiming for extra cred by pwning off BlackBerry's past global success?

Spratts Pride 1. Does it come with lifetime updates?

A. It says in the The Fine Print :

Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for the lifetime of the product.

B. It says this on your web site:

CloudBerry Lab is rapidly updating their products. First year upgrades are included in the initial price.
For the subsequent years you have to pay 20% of the initial price. Note, that you can use the previous version indefinitely if you don't like to upgrade.

2. What size is the online storage or is it unlimited storage online ?

3. If its not unlimited online storage - How much space do i have online in GB ?

4. If its not unlimited online storage - Do i have to pay a monthly fee for extra GB space on my online storage account ?
Mar 12 2013 at 2:00am Copy Link
MSP360 @Michael R. FTP support is on our short term roadmap. I don't think we will have it buy the time of the promo, but certainly shortly thereafter. you will be able to upgrade to take advantage of the new feature.

@Spratts Pride currently it does come with lifetime upgrades but we can cancel it at any time. it works with your own storage account. you have to sign up for a storage account yourself, if you use Amazon S3 it is $0.095 /gb/month, if you use Amazon Glacier it is $0.01GB/month
CloudBerry Lab - Mar 12 2013 at 1:07pm Copy Link
Mike B I think the fine print tab should be updated to reflect the correct upgrade policy. There's nothing wrong with charging for upgrades, but it's not right (or wise) to advertise free lifetime upgrades but state elsewhere that the lifetime upgrades are planned to stop at some point (unless you're planning to grandfather the lifetime upgrades for people who purchased under that policy - the forum post doesn't give me that impression, though).

You might lose some sales to people who insist on lifetime upgrades, but I think the vast majority of potential customers are fine with an up-front, fair upgrade policy.

However, no one is happy with a misleading upgrade policy.
Mar 13 2013 at 12:51am Copy Link

John H I have been waiting on an interface for Amazon Glacier.

If my computers disappear and Cloud Berry company and my copy of the program disappears, Is my data on Glacier still retrievable if I have passwords?

Companies going out of business and computers breaking or changing is one of the reasons we back up. Is the retrieval and decryption of my data dependent on your online activation of this program?

Don't say that it is highly unlikely that your company will go out of business. You are a backup company and we are playing a risk benefit probability game here.

D Rogers I bought this several months ago and have been using Cloudberry online backup to Amazon S3, which I pay 10 cents a gig for storage for.

The thing I love about this software is that it backs up my business files in real time to the cloud. Easy to set up. Intuitive. Lovely program. At the bitsdejour price, I consider this a steal.

If I did not have this, backing up to amazon would be a bit of a pain. But now that I have it set up using cloudberry, I never have to worry. It does it in the background. And it does not use much resources either, so I don't feel guilty having it run in the background.

John H Hi Andy
I have nothing to hide from the government we have now in the US.

My actual fear is the unreadable terms of service for cloud providers and the very real legal capability they have to own and use my data. Many terms of service are open ended contracts that can be changed at any time.

Open source guarantees that the software can be inspected for back doors.

I do industrial research and design. I need to take the ownership of my work very seriously. Dropbox is a very bad joke when it comes to security and ownership of ones work. I am currently setting up my network for syncing files but still need an off site backup system I can trust.

Thank you for any explanation.

Stephen Hines Andy,

Thanks for clarifying CloudBerry's position regarding user data. As someone who is not American, I am definitely keen to hide my private and my work-related data from your government - and am extremely puzzled that CloudBerry thinks secrecy must be a bad thing.

It is clear from your comment that this product is not for the international community.

Tony Jacobson I share the security concerns expressed above. I think this is a great cloud backup program, but I can't bring myself to use it. Cloudberry's Contact Us page has no address, just a feedback form and some phone numbers.

Their downloads are digitally signed by a company called Trichilia Consultants Limited, which appears to be a UK company. The postcode for Trichilia Consultants is used by 31,471 other companies, so it’s just a mail forwarding service. Sorry, but I'm not giving my password and encryption key to a company that tries so hide from its customers.

I don't have anything to hide from the government, but I do have important trade secrets to protect. If you do want to use this product, I suggest that you backup to a local disk first, and then use a different program to encrypt and upload the files to the cloud. Not ideal, but it allows you to use some of the great features in this program without giving it your passwords.

Also, don't just assume that using "industry standard encryption algorithms such as AES 256" is some guarantee of security. The key derivation algorithm and chaining mode have a massive impact on security. If implemented badly, your data could still be at risk. If the security of your data is important to you, then you should use a dedicated encryption product, preferably open source for the encryption.

Takster Tony, I tend to err on the side of caution like yourself and others, but instead of assuming the worst, why not investigate? The encryption implementation details are here: http://www.cloudberrylab....berry.aspx Those who have asked about the implementation, I presume you have the necessary skills to check it - can you let us all know if the implementation is good? FWIW, Steve Gibson has "vetted" it - http://www.cloudberrylab....ibson.aspx

John H I see that I am not alone in my security paranoia. My sincere best wishes go out to all those living under oppressive governments.

Cloudberry needs to consider these other scenarios.

I watched the Steve Gibson Videos. At some point, one has to find a credible third party. Read his Wikipedia article and the talk page on his Wikipedia article.
I could find no technical reason to disqualify him as a credible source.

One can only trust themselves and even then we have a great capability to BS ourselves.

It is only proprietary design work I need to protect, nothing life and death. I need to stop using Dropbox for offsite storage. Cloudberry will work.

9 bucks for a license, I'll take 2. A fantastic deal!

Thanks BDJ and Cloudberry!

Norm Sash Hide information from the government? Absolutely I want to hide my information from privacy abuse and invasion by an overstepping government. I want to hide everything possible from a government that holds all the power and is subject to abusing that power. The government has no business snooping on my personal information and invading my privacy.

If they have good cause for being suspicious that something is wrong, then have them get a valid search warrant. Otherwise, stay out of my business.

By the comment from Cloudberry "But I am not sure we want to deal with the customer who have something to hide from the federal government." leads me to believe that Coudberry is in bed with the National SPY Agency and complicit with government abuse and invasion of privacy. Or at the very least is ambivalent about such abuses.

GoodNPlenty Andy Mandy "But I am not sure we want to deal with the customer who have something to hide from the federal government."

@Andy Mandy
I don't want to deal with any company that doesn't put my expectation of privacy first and foremost. You seem to side with the government trend of wanting to collect all possible data on everyone without any probable cause or reason. Caveat emptor

The phrase caveat emptor arises from the fact that buyers often have less information about the good or service they are purchasing, while the seller has more information. Defects in the good or service may be hidden from the buyer, and only known to the seller. Thus, the buyer should beware.

The purpose of the Fourth Amendment to the US constitution is to uphold the privacy and security of individual persons against subjective invasions by the government and its officials. When the government violates an individual’s “expectation of privacy”, then an unlawful search has occurred. I have no problem if the government can show that there was “probable cause” for a search and obtain a warrant.

CloudBerry Lab is rapidly updating their products. First year upgrades are included in the initial price For the subsequent years you have to pay 20% of the initial price. Note, that you can use the previos version indefinetely if you don't like to upgrade.

I would assume that what's indicated in the BDJ "Fine Print" is a mistake. However, I'm not connected with the vendor (or BDJ); it would be nice for the policy to be clarified and corrected in whichever place is a mistake.

John H I would like to offer a logical and rational way to examine the security issue that brought up so much annoying emotional dumping on Cloudberry. It is based on my experience with security issues and chains of custody from when I was in the military.

I offer the following Axioms for security software:

1- Unless a program is open source and peer reviewed by a large community, then it must be assumed that it is not totally secure. Without being open, there are unknown links in the chain of security. The flaws could be intentional or unintentional. This is not meant to be a criticism against Cloudberry.

2- Open Source Code is no guarantee of security. It only offers a degree of security that is defined by the trust one has of the peer review community.

Axiom 1 automatically negates any opinion or sales pitch by a software developer. Andy Mandy could have told you all exactly what you wanted to hear but it would not alter the actual chain of security.

Axiom 2 demands that you understand the software you are using and make a weighted decision based on your needs. One must even be skeptical of Open Source True Crypt, the peer community and even where you download the source code. There are no simple prepackaged 100 percent solutions.

I purchased two licenses. I evaluated the risk vs benefit of the Security Chain that Cloudberry offers. It is a superior piece of software for backup purposes and until someone develops the same quality software with open code I will stay with it. Even then, it would need time to be vetted by peers in the security community.

Jester Dear Screener,

Can you delete the line "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for the lifetime of the product." in the The Fine Print section since it is not true.

John H Replace Dropbox with CloudBerry and AeroFS (or BitTorrent Sync).

I purchased 2 licensees the last time this was offered. I found it to be a very good and easy to understand program. I was trying to get rid of Dropbox but gave up due to the overly complex syncing software. Went back to idiot proof Dropbox.

I have recently found AeroFS to be just as moron proof as Dropbox except the data does not go into the cloud. I am very happy with it except I still do not have secure offsite backup.

I think I will give my CloudBerry purchase another try to implement the cloud backup.

Downloading data from Amazon Glacier can be expensive if done carelessly. Does Cloudberry allow me to manage the download rate?

Can I backup in use files to S3 and archive file to Glacier at the same time? This is asking too much I think.

Mike B Is it possible to get a clarification on the upgrade policy? The "Fine Print" on BDJ indicates lifetime upgrades are included. The policy in the help for Cloudberry Backup indicates 1 year of free upgrades with subsequent upgrades charged at 20% of the software's price (ie., an 80% discount).

Just to CLARIFY Your Statement (above):
Immediately above (regarding "Annual Maintenance") you said"...It is 20% per year of the original purchase ..."

(you DID say "...of the original purchase ..." which is to US $9.00 of which 20% is $1.80...
Of COURSE Even at $6.00 this is more than reasonable if support is needed and/or There are significant upgrades in the Software (RE: New Security Vulnerabilities or Functionality).
Other "Users" NOTE that according to "the Fine Print" (above) the program will continue to function even after the one year is up... it just will NOT be eligible for "Free" upgrades (or Support) !!!

Also, such information as file name encryption not being available for certain cloud services is very important, and it would be helpful to have it on your site (where I did not find it).

CloudBerry Lab - Sep 1 2018 at 3:39am Copy Link
peter anon Thanks. Unfortunately that FAQ dates back to 2014 and is no longer current for your software,

Although the method still works in another place, it still revolves around creating a "billable" storage account with google.

The other gdrive solutions I have, simply pair with the account, or get a token live, by logging in (vaguely like oauth).

So I was hoping that as a mature players in the field, that you would let people just connect easily to their existing google drive, even though it is a small scale consumer account.

Naturally I was hoping to do it on the cheap. I have multiple 15GB gdrives doing nothing, and most documents needing backing up, are quite small anyway.

Anyway, I'd imagine it would be quite popular to EASILY use a couple of gdrives, as they are free (for now).

In other software, you can link multiple gdrives and dropboxes together as a virtual drive, so I was hoping you would do that too, by now.
Again I imagine that would be quite a popular feature for you.

I realise on the small scale, this may seem a pony user case to you.
But the scaled reality is I have 10TB of data to backup, and I don't have the budget of $200~$300 per month the industry seems to demand right now, to back that up.
So I'm limited to "local" 10TB backup drives, which could obviously fail or get stolen. So I'm always looking to backup what I can, remotely, as economically as possible.
The reality is the daily important stuff is pretty small, so 15GB is actually relevant, especially IF I could use them combined, manged by an intelligent file list software.

As a multi destination, multi job, intelligent spacing software, I was hoping cloudberry would come to my rescue?

Personally I thin a well implememted SW for backing up to the cloud would be really interesting. Unfortunately this SW is old and might not rellay work as modern GUI client. An remember: The best backup SW is omly as good as it's backup.
So I think I have to skip here, sorry Andy.
PS: But please not, that I also skip the cheap Zoolz-SW since I learned that you can backup to hot zone only /50%) - if you wanna backup to the cold zone, there is NO client support, you must upload the prepared backup files of x GBs in your browser ...

Cary Adams I'm confused. Is this for the Pro version? If so, please explain the 1TB limit. Are you offering 1TB of cloud storage to each Pro account, or are you saying I can only upload 1TB into my own S3 account. If so is that 1TB per s3 bucket? Or 1TB for all S3, or 1TB cumulative for all cloud services I use?

Also... why the pricing disparity between Windows and Mac? Is the Mac version more limited in capability? If so, how?

Thanks for your answers.

Jester Hello, Does CloudBerry Backup and the encryption process handle long filenames and long directory name? Some programs just skip these files.

MSP360 @Cary Adams 1TB limit means that you can at any time have at most 1TB of data on the cloud account managed by CloudBerry Backup. E.g. you can upload 800 GB, then another 200GB, then delete 300GB but you can't exceed the limit of 1TB. Consider this way we are making our product affordable for users with lower storage requirements.

in fact in the Desktop Edition we silently offer a 5TB limit. Mac version is not limited, b/c it is a new product and we want many people to use it

MSP360 @Mustang what exactly do you mean? how to get a new version? The annual maintenance fee covers the free upgrades and priority support. It is 20% per year of the original purchase.
since our product is very low cost, we don't include the maintenance for the first year.

MSP360 @Albert Jester yes, it does support long files. I suggest that you download the trial, you can test it before the offer expires.

Nico Westerdale Great News! CloudBerry Lab has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

Mustang The fine print reads "Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for 12 months. For versions after that, upgrades will require additional payment, which will be discounted by 80%." If I have a license and want to upgrade I find no link on your website that spells out how to do it.

MSP360 @thezen, buy mac version and reach out to our support, they will convert it to Linux.

MSP360 @Mustang fine print is incorrect. we don't include the free updates any more. as long as you have the current maintenance you can download the new version on our website and upgrade

Mustang Upgrade how???? Have asked the same question twice and still no clear instruction. I give up!
Feb 2 2019 at 2:59pm Copy Link
MSP360 @Mustang, I am sorry we have 200K users, I am not sure what else I can explain. How do you upgrade other software, for instance MS Office? We upgrade in a similar fashion

Mustang Your product information page states "**The license is per computer, one time fee." There is no mention anywhere on that page that a maintenance subscription would need to be purchased after 1 year for continued updates. I do not understand why developers cant be more upfront with consumers about the true cost of using their software. If an existing license holder wanted to purchase just the subscription there is no link on that page. There is no tab on your homepage that discusses your subscription service; ie cost, renewal gaps or cancellation process. There is no store or pricing tabs on your homepage that again should address these basic questions. There is no link in the program;s help or about sections that takes a license holder to a purchase maintenance renewal page. And to answer your question, MS Office has a link on their home page labeled "Renew your subscription." I have 2 licenses that I purchased back in 2012, but over the years I have found other programs that served my needs better, When I saw the promotion, I took another look and liked some of the improvements so I thought I would update my licenses and purchase the maintenance. But after three posts, I still have no idea where to go on your website to do that. You sure don't make it easy.

David O'Neill A number of months ago, I had a serious look at using Amazon's Glacier for my (personal) disaster backup. In the end, after reading many cases of people getting nasty surprises, I gave up on the idea of using Amazon as I simply wasn't confident that I was correctly calculating their charges.

(1) Does CloudBerry Backup provide any support for calculating storage (and recovery) charges?
(2) Not directly related to your product (apologies!), but can you recommend a link on determining Amazon charges?

Many Thanks,

JW Might I enquire as to exactly what is being sold here?
Is it just the CloudBerry Backup program? Or does it also include some storage? If so, how much storage is being purchased here with the CloudBerry Backup for Windows ($15) offering?
Would this be an annual charge for the storage or a 'perpetual' account?
Would I need to sign up for an Amazon S3 account?

Mario Demi Hello is this the Pro Version (on your Homepage 49,99) with 5 Terrabyte limit
or only 1 Terrabyte limit to backup?
Jul 20 2019 at 11:49am Copy Link
MSP360 @Mario in fact in the Desktop Edition we offer a 5TB limit.

MSP360 @JW We don't sell storage, We work with multiple storage providers such as Amazon S3, Google Storage, MS Azure. You will to sign up for storage account directly. also need to pay the storage fee. Amazon S3 $0.03/GB/month. Amazon Glacier $0.004/GB/month. Azure ~$0.03 GB/month, , Google Cloud Storage $0.024
How to sign up and get started with Amazon S3 Backup
CloudBerry Lab - Jul 21 2019 at 10:07am Copy Link
MSP360 @David I would recommend that you use a lower-cost Amazon Standard IA storage class instead of Glacier . Amazon S3 Standard - Infrequent Access (Standard - IA) prices starting at $0.0125 per GB per month, $0.01 per GB retrieval fee, and a 30-day storage minimum. This combination of low cost and high performance makes Standard - IA ideal for long-term file storage, backups, and disaster recovery.

David O'Neill Thanks, Andy, but it's a bit more than I want to spend.

Does Cloudberry Backup support Amazon's Glacier Deep Archive?

Jul 22 2019 at 2:03am Copy Link
MSP360 @David, we support all Amazon storage classes. But Glacier is not a backup storage. it is archive storage. Data is not available immediately .and in Deep Archive it takes even longer to get it. We don't advise this storage for consumers.
