Gotcha! Data Backup


This is my latest invention. ;) It's actually been in the works for many years. I've been using it in my internal Computer Repair company for a long time now.

It is used to backup user data from a system before reinstalling a computer... or to transfer the data to another computer. I've built in many of the much needed areas that Technicians tend to need to backup.

It can be used on a system running windows. It can also detect multiple Windows Drives and ask you which drive you wish to do backups from. This is helpful when you attach a customers drive as a slave drive on your system by connecting their drive internally in your computer or through USB. It also will work on WinPE.

Another useful feature it has is the ability to Move Files to your backup location instead of copying them. This is a great feature if you wish to quickly move all of their important data into a folder on the same drive that you will be reinstalling the system. Since all of the data is being relocated to a spot on the same drive backups will be much faster.

Here are some of the things Gotcha! can backup:
Windows Product Keys
Office Product Keys
Drivers
Shared Docs
Fonts
Desktop
Favorites
My Documents
My Pictures
My Music
My Videos
Downloads
Firefox
Google Chrome
WinMail
Outlook Express
Microsoft Office



Please let me know what you think! Let me know if you come across any bugs! Let me know if you have any ideas you wish me to add as well!!

v0.5.0.2:
Fixed - Data Restore was not working properly. The MD5Hash checking code was messed up. All seems well with the world again. ;)

Updated to 0.5.0.3.

Changed - I got rid of MD5Hash Checking. It was too slow. Now Gotcha checks file dates and only overwrites if the date does not match. This makes Gotcha super fast when dealing with files that already exist.

If you enjoy this software please give me a review @:

If you have any requests please reply to this thread. :)

My name is Marco and I write from Italy (sorry for my English), I am very interested in your program, but I have a problem, Gotcha! backup can save folders with the Italian name, not the English?
When I go to restore it gives me error http://i.imgur.com/HvFzY.jpg, if I rename the folders and Gotcha!.Ini in Italian restore works.

The next version of Gotcha has had a lot of internal code modified. It looks for many of these paths in the registry now. It may fix this issue. When I release it I would love to have you feedback to let me know if it is fixed for other languages. :)

Thanks!
