Building on the success of its predecessorsÂespecially Top Ten ReviewsÂ gold-rated backup utility GBM 5.0ÂGBM 6.0 introduces many improved features that are expected to better position it to set new market standards for such applications.
Version 6.0Âs new features include the very useful differential backup option, which will be present in the software, alongside GBMÂs traditional backup optionsÂnormal, increment and mirror backupsÂwhich were also thoroughly enhanced in their functionalities and performance.
Another major addition in GBM 6.0 is its ability to run scheduled backup tasks while Windows is logged off. This feature ensures more security, since backup tasks will be able to run when no user is logged on, restricting physical access to the data on the computer.
Also, users will be able to utilize the multi-drive spanning feature to span backed up data onto more than one local or LAN locations, including multiple partitions, hard disks, shared and mapped network locations, and SAN and NAS devices.
One feature that has garnered rave reviews from users and experts alike is the free plug-ins search and download option, which enables users to search for free backup plug-ins on the Genie-Soft website directly from the Genie Backup Manager interface, then downloading and adding the new plug-in in a one-click process. These plug-ins, which enable users to backup different software and their preferences, are for the first time being introduced for free, as other backup software makers charge users extra for such an option.
Users who want to backup files named in languages that use non-English characters will be saved from the hassle of renaming their files before backing them up; as GBM 6.0 uses the new and improved Primo digital media authoring engine from Sonic Corp, which supports seamless backup of files with Unicode filename characters.
To further enhance the backup experience, GBM 6.0 will also allow users to execute commands before and after a backup task. This feature can be used to scan output backup files for viruses, run backup tasks in sequence, close applications that are blocking access to certain files, among many other functions.
As for the new and improved tape backup engine that GBM 6.0 introduces, it adds support for more tape brands and models, while carrying advanced features for better reliability and optimized performance.
GBM 6.0 also employs the same cutting-edge features that made GBM 5.0 such a great success among users, as it uses the same encryption, open file management, support for visual accessibility, while it enhances the cataloging through an advanced search facility.
In an attempt to reach a new level of data safety, GBM 6.0 also enables users to carry out a cyclic redundancy check to verify data reliability, while offering them the option to perform backup simulation to the inserted CD/DVD media to test whether the backup task will be carried out successfully, before committing data to the media.
The GBM family has been traditionally recognized for its flexibility and wide-ranging options that set it apart from other backup utilities in the marketÂas it can backup anything, anytime to anywhere. However, GBM 6.0 also offers an easy backup wizard for beginners, through a two-step straightforward wizard layout that offers users quick and hassle-free backups. Yet, users who have some technical knowledge will find the normal backup wizard to be a more flexible and powerful layout, with more advanced features at their disposal.
