Wanted to mention - my original description of GBM was based on version 5, and I've now updated the review to take into consideration the features that have been improved in version 6.  Most notably I complained in the original review about the lack of a search function - version 6 now has a fantastic search function..

when i saw that i fell in love with this program :-*

Taleb: Welcome to the forums, I hope you enjoy your stay here and learn of ways to make your program better (Who knows, you might actually learn of other possible programs to make).

Taleb (hope you don't mind me refering to you by first name).

I like the ability to specify global and per-backup-job filters to exclude files matching a pattern, but one feature I am missing is the ability to specify filters for subdirectories based on name, as can be done in Retrospect (for example to easily say to ignore all subfolders named "Junk", regardless of location in backup tree).

For example in my Programming directory i have tons of subdirectories and many of them have subfolders labeled "Backup" or "Junk" or "Intermediates" and i would like to be able to specify a filter that ignores all files in these subdirectories matching this pattern.

Maybe such filter would look like "Junk\*.*" to describe a filter that should match all files (and subdirs) inside any subdirectory named Junk, or "*Junk*\" ?

another suggestion:

It would be very useful to be able to browse the catelog as a directory tree, rather than just a list of files,
though i did really like the way it can show files organized by whether they are new or modified.

for an example of the job-centric approach that i think is more useful for a backup program (as opposed to the approach i complained about in genie), see handy backup: http://www.handybackup.com/

another minor request for genie:
the checkbox in a job labeled "shortcut for this on desktop", i think might be better handled by the approach that retrospect takes, which is basically to have a BUTTON or menu item called "create a shortcut for this backup job"; then you could make it when you wanted and where you wanted.

Just to say welcome too, and I really like GBP which has replaced my other backup methods except for drive imaging.

I second Carol's note about GBP - it's replaced a cocktail of different backup scripts that I used to run. I'm looking forward to version 7 as I qualify for the upgrade for free!

Welcome to the forum, Dr. Hammad. Incidentally, I've found Genie-soft's support to be first rate and have received several responses to queries direct from yourself, which I've found very impressive.

Keep up the good work!

OK, the suspense is killing me... Any word on when GBM 7 will go live? Is there any information about "what's new" in this version (this is what I'm really interested in)? There is no information that I can identify anywhere on the Genie website!

I think I'll give GBM a try... I need some decent backup software, and you guys seem pretty happy with it :)
