is a server/client backup application that comes packed with a bunch of advanced settings for keeping your files safe. It can be accessed from a web interface and implements options for managing activities, configuring backups, examining logs and statistics, as well as for tinkering with additional settings.
The UI is simplistic and does not contain visually appealing elements, yet it is simple to navigate. UrBackup shows multiple panes and you can study the backup status when it comes to the computer name, last seen date and time, last file and image backup, and IP address.
It is possible to add extra clients to the list by host name or IP, as well as to start backup jobs for selected entries and choose the method (e.g. incremental file backup). UrBackup shows log details with any warnings or errors along with actions taken, and permits you to send reports.
As far as program settings are concerned, you can change the default backup storage path, disable file or image backups, set the tool to automatically shut down the server and update clients, indicate the maximum number of simultaneous backups and recently active clients, set the cleanup time window, alter the time interval for incremental and full file backups, as well as manage permissions (e.g. allow client-side changing of the directories to back up). There are just some of the configuration settings provided by this piece of software.
The tool does not put a strain on computer performance, thanks to the fact that it needs a low amount of CPU and RAM to work properly. It has a good response time and did not hang, crash or display error notifications in our tests. Although it’s not exactly oriented toward first-time users, UrBackup facilitates straightforward solutions for file backups, backed by numerous customization parameters.
