In old days, everything used to be scarce. Options were limited to whatever comes our way. But these days, as we live in a time of abundant supply—with all upsizing, freebies and mass discounts—consumers keep on looking for reviews and experts' opinions to determine which product is better suited to serve their needs.
However when it comes to backup utilities, users will look no further, since experts have already spoken—and they have chosen Genie Backup Manager (GBM).
Many reasons made GBM a unanimous choice for experts, one of them is fact that with set of features it offers, it's definitely easiest to use.
“Genie Backup Manager Professional has a clear, simple interface which lets you manage application without problems and in just a few minutes,” UK's Personal Computer World (PCW) stated in its Feb 2005 review of GBM, in which it selected application for its Highly Recommended award. “As soon as you start working with it, you'll see that behind its simple appearance lie some advanced options not found in higher-end products.”
Before reviewing an assortment of products, experts usually predefine criteria upon which they will judge software candidates—for example, popular Info-Packets newsletter established a 6 Point Purchasing Guide to help users search for a backup utility, namely: Ease of use, value for money, reliability, performance, depth of feature set, and research and review.
After defining those measures, Info-Packets started a search for software that mostly combines all six of them. “An impossible feat? Perhaps not,” Info-Packets' Dennis Faas wrote in his March 2005 article. “Thankfully, my quest to find such a program ended when I came across a wonderful backup utility, called Genie Backup Manager.”
Faas also praised GBM for its user-friendliness and advanced features. “ Genie Backup Manager (GBM) is an all-in-one backup solution that provides easy to use, powerful features that can archive and restore personal files, documents, emails, complex Windows settings, programs, and more to virtually any local or remote device...”
Honoring GBM as its 2004 “ Editors Choice: Best overall ” in review for Outstanding Windows Backup Software Programs, industry specialists Backup Software Reviews called it: “An impressively fast and full featured program with capacity to back up Windows Registry, Favorites, Outlook data and other system files in addition to normal email and user data.”
While reviewing GBM , Backup Software Reviews concluded that when “the chips are down, you'd be happy to have this program working for you.”
