I was evaluating several backup programs and when it was VV's turn I quickly started to like the program, until I wanted to schedule my backups.

Many of your competitors allow the user to simply add an automatic backup time to the profile. In VV I have to:

1. Manually save a profile
2. Manually start another program to schedule the job
3. Manually start yet another program for real time updates.

For me this is not acceptable. Scheduling, both planned and real time, should be a part of the profile and profiles should be saved automatically.

Apart from this, it's a great program, but I won't buy it.

If you are looking for a powerful scheduler for ViceVersa PRO, check-out our new VVEngine at http://www.tgrmn.com/web/vvengine/vvengine.htm

I do understand your comment about having the scheduler integrated with VV, but our approach was always to keep the two separated. ViceVersa is used to compare sources and targets and for settings. It can be used to compare files and folders, and for manual runs. Separate tools, such as VVScheduler and VVLauncher, which are included in VV, handle scheduling.
VVEngine is a new advanced tool that you control with your internet browser, so you can even control VVengine while it is running on other machines.

I find the concept of VV way behind the times.
With programs like folder share available the setup of VV is just ridiculous.

All I should have to do is install the client on both machines, tell it which folders to sync between these machines, choose the real time option and done.

Only being able to choose shared folders, and then only after all the networking and sharing has been set up is a lot of tedium this program should remove, not require.

Hi, thanks for the feedback, VVEngine will work over TCP/IP soon, it is one of our projects.
