Best solution available
By Amazon Customer
Having tried many other solutions to backup my steadily growing photography base, I settled on CloudBerry Desktop backup for its flexibility, reliability and ease of use. It is efficient, quick to get going and it does the job. It gives me the peace of mind that I need to preserve my data and it does it without adding a chore to my busy schedule.
Overall, I think it's a solid solution suitable for home and business and allowing its users the flexibility to utilize their existing cloud storage accounts.
I look forward to new features in years to come.
Loving it
By Bruce Greenberg
Recently installed Cloudberry Backup and found it easy to use, very flexible and intelligent in its design. I love how it works with AWS, Amazon Cloud Drive, Google's cloud offerings and even local backup. After testing several software programs, this CB was the easy winner.
Good program, and cheap for what it offers.
By AndreC
The Good:

The program works very well and has a lot of very useful features that the user can use to customise the backup jobs to his/her personal requirements. Some examples: Bandwidth throttling, stop computer of going to sleep during a backup job, file compression, file block backup, etc.

There are many backup destinations to choose from and the backup service engine works un-intrusive and the whole implementation seems to be very robust.

Inexpensive for what it offers.

Some Observations:

The backup service engine has no icon shown when the console is closed. (Would be handy).

When putting the licence code in the program some of the option setting where lost that where set when the program was in evaluation mode. (Happened in my case anyway, but is just a minor problem).

The build-in help file seems to be a bit out of date. (Not a major problem but may give the user the incorrect impression that the program is somewhat ‘dated’).

The console’s interface deviates considerably from what most users are used to, in essence from the standard MS Windows Application Interface. (Not a problem to me but it does increases the learning curve and this may put some people off).

The Bad:

I cannot think of any major negative points for this program.
Reliable and easy to use - has saved me
By David McGregor
I switched to cloudberry from another cloud backup service and the setup was very easy. I have full control over where my files are stored. Initially I stored my files in S3 but now I've moved to Amazon Glacier. Getting everything setup in cloudberry was very easy and it's been reliably backup un my files for years now, every 6 months I do a test restore of some renadom files and they've always been restored perfectly. Iast year I was travelling in Europe and dropped my laptop and killed the hard drive. When I got home I got a new hard drive, initiated a restore and soon I had all of my precious documents and recent travel photos back on my latop. Gold!
Cloudberry Backup
By Amazon Customer
One of the easiest ways to back up that I've ever encountered. Great program, uncluttered and simple to use. I could set this up for clients and they could easily monitor and run it themselves. Highly recommend it.A real home run!
There is no better Glacier client on the market
By Robert Thompson
I spent several weeks comparing every backup product I could find to handle my 1TB personal backup to Glacier. CloudBerry wins in every aspect hands down. Support is great as well.
Great product
By Brian Lowry
I was researching worst-case scenario backup solutions when I ran across Amazon Glacier - I downloaded Fast Glacier, but it didn't have the scheduling capabilities that I was looking for. Fortunately, I tried CloudBerry next and it was a breeze.

I have it uploading my R-Drive computer backups to Glacier on a nightly basis; it is also setup to delete the backup files from Glacier once they have been deleted locally for 3 days. It defaults to using SSL and has the ability to encrypt on the fly.

I'm very impressed.
The best application for backup
By Moises Back
This is the best application to backup files for the cloud. Available in several languages and great cost benefit.
It is compatible with all popular cloud services, including Amazon Glacier and S3, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.
In options like Amazon Glacier, it is still possible that the program calculate the costs by estimating and prevent backup if the cost exceed a value that you can set as a limit.
CloudBerry Backup Review
Great product. Reliable, never skips a backup. Really like the email feature to confirm backups have been completed. Would help to have even more detailed setup instructions.
Cloudberry, great for local or Amazon S3 backup
By Jesper Elkjaer Laursen
I have been using Cloudberry Backup for WHS2011 for quite a while now, and it just works, no problems what so ever. I needed a backup solution for a desktop machine and it was natural for me to use Cloudberrys desktop version for this task. If you need a reliable piece of backup software at a fair price then look no further. I sure you will a happy customer as well.
