Get Backup Pro overview

Get Backup Pro is a powerful backup and disk cloning utility with folder synchronization capability.

What Get Backup Pro can do for you:

  • Full and incremental backups.
  • Produce compressed, encrypted backup archives of your data.
  • Create bootable backups for instantaneous restore.
  • Keep files in sync on two computers in one network.
  • Automate backup, cloning, and sync processes with flexible scheduling.
Features
  • Bootable Backups via Cloner When a hard disk crashes, one of the most frustrating things is that in order to copy over backed up files you must wait for a replacement hard drive and then go through the tedious restore process. The Cloner in Get Backup takes an external hard disk and turns it into a bootable copy of the disk in your Mac. So no need to wait for the replacement. You can place the clone right into your Mac and even work using the external disk until your replacement arrives.
  • Automate Backup and Sync Processes The customizable schedule tool allows to fully automate the backup and synchronization processes, so that backups are built and sync takes place on a regular basis (daily, weekly, biweekly or monthly). Specify the backup and sync start time down to a minute. You can even create separate schedules for several backup and file sync projects.
  • Back Up to CD/DVD and Any Mounted Device/Drive The program allows you to save backups to any locally mounted device/drive, including FireWire, USB, ATA, SCSI, CD and DVD devices, or network volumes.
  • Integration Integration with Apple iPhoto, Mail, iTunes and Address Book makes it very easy to access and backup your music, photos, e-mail and address records. Also, you can easily backup any other file or folder stored on your computer.
  • Data Sync Synchronize files and folders on your laptop and desktop computers, or any mounted drive. Two-way synchronization (Pro only) ensures that you have the most recent version of files you worked with, no matter which computer you are using. Schedule sync processes for more convenience and flexibility.
  • Encryption Secure your backups using one of four encryption standards (AES-128, AES-256, Blowfish or Triple DES) to prevent unauthorized archive restore. The ability to encrypt backups provides a high level of comfort and peace of mind when storing backup archives on external hard drives, third-party servers, and other locations where others might have access to your archives.
  • Diverse Backup Methods:
    • Full - all selected files are saved, and the resulting archive replaces the previously created one.
    • Versioned - all selected files are saved in a new backup archive, and the previous archives remain intact.
    • Incremental - each time a backup is built, only the files that were changed are saved in the new backup archive. (Pro only)
  • Get Backup vs. Apple Time Machine You may wonder why you need an additional backup software if you already have Apple Time Machine on your Mac. Get Backup has multiple advantages when you need to control what to backup. It offers advanced compression and encryption methods and much more. Compare Get Backup with Time Machine.

I have Belight Software 'Swift Publisher' which is so good, using it every day for the last 9 yrs. I watched their short video presenting GetBackup Pro. It's animated, without showing how the application works. Useless and does not help. The video is unchanged for years. Half animated slides presentation here also running unchanged for years, which is stupid and useless. BelightSoft, please refresh your presentation video on your site and the slides on MU. Both are terribly outdated and do not help to get an initial understanding how Getbackup pro works.

I've been using this app for over a year. Initially I used the free version (when it was available on the Mac App Store) and later I've purchased the full version from their website. I loved the app for its simplicity and the easy way to create various backups or syncs. While I was using the App Store version, I quickly realized that it has obvious bugs which makes the app problematic to use. Support was quick and helpful and they patched up the bugs. But more and more bugs started to show up. Eventually I abandoned the app and started to use a different backup program which was exceptional but way too robust. And as I was saying I really liked Get Backup Pro because it was simple. A few months later I checked back where the app was, as far as bug fixes, and noticed that release a few updates since I used the app. So I installed it again and started to use it. Which brings us to today (May of 2020), using the latest 3.5.4 (1425) version. I am keep facing with more and more bugs to the point that it is unusable at this point. Erroneous messages and files appearing in the file list that don't even exist neither on my source nor on my target device. I have emailed support with a detailed description and screenshots of the problem. A few days later they release the current version - 3.5.4 (1425) - but the above mentioned problem still intact. So at this point I am not able to make any backups or syncs for over 2 weeks now with the app. I can see now that this was a bad investment. The app is nice, love the simplicity, support is, I'd say, great, but the constant bugs and bugs and bugs, is not only disappointing but makes the app difficult, if not impossible, to use. As of now, I will completely abandon this app and will resort to the other, more cumbersome app to use for backups/syncs. I don't want to mention the competition for obvious reason, but that app is rock solid despite it has such a multitude of features, most I won't ever use. I'm quite disappointed with this app and the fact I threw out nearly 20 bucks on the window.

I've been using this SW for a few years and have been very happy with it...I've even recommended it to a couple friends that also love it. However it will no longer create a clone, my reason for using the software in the first place. All it says after 45 minutes of "cloning" is "cloning failed". Any ideas?

Hi, Is there a trick or additional step needed to make it run faster? From SD drive to another SD drive, GB took 7.5 hours to back 260 gigs up to 80% on the target drive. CCC took 2 hours to perform the same backup up to 100%. Also, which company owns which, Belight Software or EaseUS Software? Get Backup and EaseUS have the same user interface, although EaseUS seems to be a bit faster. Thanks

With the app developer recently (yet again) providing prompt assistance with an issue I caused myself I felt compelled to leave a review somewhere for this program. I only use this program to sync folders (as a form of backup - ie I have a copy of certain folders on an external HDD and sync one direction to them as a form of backup) so I can't comment on the other features however, for what I use it for it works perfectly. Perhaps more importantly, the developer has always been very helpful (and prompt) when I have needed help getting something sorted out. I love Get Backup Pro.

I'm stunned!!! The same ~20 GB clone that Carbon Copy Cloner completes in 3 1/2 minutes and SuperDuper! completes in 5 1/2 minutes took Get Backup Pro 39 1/2 (Yeah, that's thirty nine.) to complete. Nothing else matters.

For what ever reason I could NOT get it to save the backups to a shared network drive. I ended up writing my own solution using Automator and Calendar which just works and backs up our FilemakerPro databases in a ZIP file onto the shared drive. Not bothered with it since.

I installed this software to backup a drive. Without warning, it completely deleted all the files on my drive leaving me with a blank drive. Reported to BeLight support and their support is as bad as their software!!!

Pros: It does incremental backups by default, so it is faster when working. It also has the option to backup to .dmg or encrypted .dmg, which is great. Also has the option to start up in admin mode so you don't have to repeatedly type in your password. It is also $20 cheaper than Carbon Copy Cloner.

Cons: I strongly recommend reading the product documentation (which is very good). Buries backed up files in a nightmare of subfolders (a "go to backed up file/folder" option (a button?) would be helpful). Bear in mind that the App Store version is not full-featured. Developers intentionally removed certain features from that version (the App Store version can be upgraded without paying the full price.).

Get Backup Pro works fine, but the cloning process is VERY slow. CCC will make a full clone of my MacBook Pro 15" 2017 model with 2 TB ssd in about 6 minutes. Get Backup Pro takes several hours to do the same.

Just to say it again, I love this super simple app...it just works! However I am having a minor issue. Since upgrading to Sierra every time I launch Get Backup (I have the Pro version), it asks for my admin password. I have it running backups overnight and it will launch in the middle of the night, then when I wake up I see the password dialogue box, I enter my PW and then the backups run. Anyone else experience this.

It works, but shows no log data. I found it to be unclear what's going on. Especially when backing up large sums of date, I like to know what's happening. I found SyncBuddy to be a better option, it has not as many options, but does what I need.

Just a quick heads up: BeLight Software is offering Get Backup Pro for free until September 30, 2015. The version is 2.6.1 and oddly you have to press CTRL while opening the app or Gatekeeper will not allow it to open. http://www.belightsoft.com/free-backup-offer/
