What do you like best?

The single screen control is very user friendly. It's convenient that you can choose to back up your data to both onsite and offsite. The free trial was a great way to figure out if this tool would work for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We haven't really had any problems, so for now, no complaints. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Luckily, we haven't had to use the disaster recovery feature yet, but that's the main reason we started using this product. We feel much more confident now knowing that 100% of our data is backed up. Also, as a small business, we're probably not going to be a target for ransomware, but it's great to know that BackupAssist can both detect and protect against it.

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use of this product. It 's easy to schedule backups of virtual machines on different systems. like vmware and hyper-v.

The restore solution for Exchange servers is excellent. It 'easy to perform a granular restore of an Exchange server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The exchange server management is delicate, it happens to have incompatibilities or incomplete backup. Most often this is independent of the backup software, but is given by exchenge. make good maintenance on the exchange database and apply system updates can solve.
