Fabrik Ultimate Backup
- Easy to set up, offers unlimited restores
- Not integrated into local backup client
If you're not backing up off-site to guard against data disaster, you should be, and Fabrik is as good a way to do it as any, especially when it has 2GB for free.
Ultimate Backup is a super handy way to keep your files remotely backed up.
Shopping Fabrik's line of external hard drives, you might get the idea that Fabrik Ultimate Backup is an adjunct of those products, but it's actually a separate, exceedingly useful online backup service.
The pricing for Ultimate Backup is very similar to another such service -- Mozy.com -- which is not surprising, as they both use venerable Berkeley Data Systems' storage facilities. Like Mozy, Fabrik offers 2GB of online storage for free, or unlimited storage for just $US5 a month.
The Fabrik Ultimate Backup client sits in your system tray automatically backing up the files and folders you select, but it also gives you a number of thoughtful options. You can limit its usage of your broadband connection, set the program so that backups transpire only while your computer is at idle, and specify how much CPU time the client uses during backups. You can also schedule it to back up only during specified hours or at specified times.
Data may be retrieved by double-clicking the "Fabrik Ultimate Backup" icon that the program adds to "Other devices" in Windows Explorer, or by logging on to your account with your browser and using an online restore function. Fabrik also offers the same 128-bit SSL and 448-bit Blowfish encryption Mozy employs, and you can use Fabrik's self-generated key or one of your own (but don't lose it, or you can't restore).
My only quibble with Fabrik Ultimate Backup is a minor one -- it should be integrated into the company's Total Backup and Record local backup utility, which is bundled with its hard drives.
If you're not backing up off-site to guard against data disaster, you should be, and Fabrik is as good a way to do it as any. Did I mention that you get 2GB for free?

PCW Evaluation Team
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
