  1. I have never found a B/U…one I can test every now and then to be sure. This sounds like it might finally be the one!

    I have used several different ASHAMPOO products and they are all top shelf. Thanks for the swell giveaway!

  3. This Ashampoo backup looks like it will be perfect for me to try. I am finding that my network based hard drive is not usable for many backup programs. I am hoping Ashampoo will solve the problem.

    Dave’s Computer tips Rocks !

  4. I’ve tried several different backup software programs and would like to give Ashampoo a test to see how it compares to the others.

  5. Still looking for a backup pgm I’d like – and I’ve purchased & tried many.
    Ashampoo has a number of pgms I like to I’d appreciate an opportunity to give theirs a go.

    Our Symantec System Recovery backup software has yet to be updated to support Windows 10, with no projected update date. Although I have been a Symantec backup software user for over 20 years and appreciate its comprehensive feature set and reliability, I am now afraid that Symantec is planning to sell or drop the product. Therefore, I’m looking for a new backup solution. I have read good reviews of the new Ashampoo Backup (formerly an Ocster product), and would like to take the opportunity to give it a thorough tryout.

  7. I have recently come out of the “Stone Age” (32bit Win XP) and I need a good
    back up program for my new 64bit machine.

  8. Like some of the others have stated, I, too, have been unhappy with every b/u program I’ve ever used. And that covers 15 years or more. Also, as the newsletter editor for the MOAA Computer Users Group I could demo this at one of our monthly meetings and do a review for our newsletter. Mahalo and Aloha.

  9. I’m a fan of ashampoo programs and currently i have a trial version of this program. A very nice surprise would be winning full version license of this great firmware. 🙂

  10. excellent program for system backup.
    I would be very handy program such risk because it does not have any of this type of program to make a copy of the system.

  11. Months ago, I have experienced a crash in my system and every datas and files were vanished. Then I realize that a good backup program is a must-have to ensure data security! Moreover, through use of Ashampoo Backup Pro 10, backups can even be accessed without the program as virtual drives in Windows Explorer.
    That’s why I would like to win this license to backup my system.

  12. My introduction to Ashampoo many years ago (1999) was a shareware app called SecurityManager 99 on W98. It became my favorite method of encrypting a set of files and folders. I’ve been happy with their products ever since. This sounds like another winner.
