Reviews for this release

This is a life saver. Works like a charm. Only issue I found was that if we had multiple profiles in the same computer, with some value for "number of days" it does not run the backup process, if processed for one profile.

Hello, multiple profiles are currently not yet full supported. The timestamp of the last backup is profile independent up to now.

Easy to install, configure and use. I tried with Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 and 10. It works well. Thanks Thomas, excellent add-in! Nothing for Outlook 2016 MAC ?

Hello, sorry. Office for Mac doesnt support add-ins. This kind of extension mechanism is not available on Office for Mac.

As Microsoft's backup stopped working several years ago, this program is an absolute life saver. Thank you very much.

Thanks, Nice implementation.

Backup is incremental, so deleting of events are not propagate to backup but only new ones are inserted ! Apparently seems a good program but for missing great feature as described, I am not satisfied at all ...

The backup works as described, see discussion It is a backup tool, not an online synchronisation

Incredibly easy to install, configure and use. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. i highly recommend this app. Dev is extremely responsive to requests for support as well.

Gets the job done quite well while providing minimum implementation support due to .msi-installation package. Worked right away after installation and provides an easy to use GUI with additional useful features like <Reset last Backup Date>.

it doesn't show all my ost files. there are four on my computer on the same location but still.... Can I add missing files? otherwise I have to manually backup these every time.

OST-Files are for caching emails. Please take a look at this page:
