Free ALPHA test version.

This program is also available as a low-cost donate version, with select stable versions and no end user obligations.

The free version is for trying and testing, and is fully functional, but it may ask you to upgrade when there are newer ALFA versions available. If you do not like to be a tester over time or just want to show support, please buy the low-cost pay-for version once you have found it working satisfactory in your home.

Please continue to support and contribute by updating to the latest versions, reporting issues (to [email protected]) and suggesting improvements.

In general, please share successes with the world, but more importantly - as goes for any Alpha-version tester, any found issues to [email protected]

Includes easy-to-follow Guide for getting started.

Almost perfect. Backs up photos and videos to my NAS drive as soon as I get home (albeit a little slowly). If it only backed up app data and settings too I would gladly pay!

For those who are having issues with large files (videos) disconnecting in the middle of the transfer: I've been having this issue for years and I would have to retry the backup over and over until the large file finally completed. I was ready to switch to another app until I found this solution from just trial and error: On your PC, go to: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy. Then go to: Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options. Find "Microsoft network client: Amount of idle time required before suspending session" and change it to "60 minutes". Also find "Microsoft network server: Disconnect clients when logon hours expire" and change it to "Disabled". Then try running the backup again on your phone and you should have a much more stable connection. Hope that helps a lot of people out there with Microsoft's finicky SMB file system!

...speed of my home network is 100mbit/s. My phone truly linked at this speed to my PC but this software are copying files much slower. Secondly I'm still searching similar app with syncing of Pictures and Videos from phone's Camera folder to my PC's Pictures and Videos folder separately. This one is working well only for pictures. 4 starts for low speed.
