  1. Latest version finally released! v0.5.0.8. It has been in the testing phase for quite some time. v0.5.0.6 and v0.5.0.7 were only internal releases. A lot of work went into this version and I think everybody will enjoy it!! Please don't forget to give it a great review if you enjoy using it! http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Gotcha-Data-Backup/1347855415/1
  2. UPDATE: Gotcha! Data Backup is now featured in Computer Power User Magazine! Issue January 2013 on page 72!!
  3. Updated to Changed - I got rid of MD5Hash Checking. It was too slow. Now Gotcha checks file dates and only overwrites if the date does not match. This makes Gotcha super fast when dealing with files that already exist. If you enjoy this software please give me a review @: http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Gotcha-Data-Backup/1347855415/1 If you have any requests please reply to this thread.
  4. v0.5.0.2: Fixed - Data Restore was not working properly. The MD5Hash checking code was messed up. All seems well with the world again.
  5. Update: v0.5.0.0: Enhanced - Microsoft Office Outlook backup now backs up all pst files as well as email settings.
  6. Gotcha! Data Backup UPDATE: Gotcha! Data Backup is now featured in Computer Power User Magazine! Issue January 2013 on page 72!! This is my latest invention. It's actually been in the works for many years. I've been using it in my internal Computer Repair company for a long time now. It is used to backup user data from a system before reinstalling a computer... or to transfer the data to another computer. I've built in many of the much needed areas that Technicians tend to need to backup. It can be used on a system running windows. It can also detect multiple Windows Drives and ask you which drive you wish to do backups from. This is helpful when you attach a customers drive as a slave drive on your system by connecting their drive internally in your computer or through USB. It also will work on WinPE. Another useful feature it has is the ability to Move Files to your backup location instead of copying them. This is a great feature if you wish to quickly move all of their important data into a folder on the same drive that you will be reinstalling the system. Since all of the data is being relocated to a spot on the same drive backups will be much faster. Here are some of the things Gotcha! can backup: Windows Product Keys Office Product Keys Drivers Shared Docs Fonts Desktop Favorites My Documents My Pictures My Music My Videos Downloads Firefox Google Chrome WinMail Outlook Express Microsoft Office Please let me know what you think! Let me know if you come across any bugs! Let me know if you have any ideas you wish me to add as well!! *** This is still in Beta... so use at your own risk *** Download and Review @ FileForum
  7. Beta 7 is online now as well! I will also be releasing my Data Backup utility (With Drivers backup) soon as well. Just a few more changes and it will be ready for a public release. It's a great Utility for backing up needed Data from a computer before reinstalling the system and works in both a live system and a Preinstallation Environment like BartPE or LiveXP.
  8. Updated! Beta 5: Fixed - A few bugs in the code causing DriverGrabber to fail finding the correct path to grab some driver files. Changed - DriverSearch is now set to Off by default. If anyone has issues with backups I suggest they try to turn DriveSearch on and then post their log on the forum so I can make sure their drivers are properly backed up in a future release of DriverGrabber. We are still in Beta... and I'd like to have DriverGrabber functioning as well as I can without the need for DriveSearch.
  9. Beta 3 online. Beta 3: Fixed - Issue creating folder for DriverNames with characters that are not usable in a directory name. Like /\* and so on. Now invalid characters are deleted.
  10. @Geej... I think you may have pointed out something I was unaware of in XP. I'm gonna look into adding something to the next beta that should make DriverGrabber work even better. Thanks!
  11. What I will do is use the DriverStore first during backup in the next release. Which will show most files being Grabbed from DriverStore. Then in the log we will see which drivers are not found in DriverStore. It could be that the files not found in DriverStore are not needed.... but I figured it's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to backing up drivers. Thanks for the input!
