Needs 5 stars!
I saw this program in the app store and was almost not going to buy it because of the negitive comments. But since I run a Mac Mini as my #1 computer and my Gmail account is filled up, I decided to give it a try. I must say the setup is so simple to use and the running in background is using the advantage of a Mac, there is nothing to do once it is set up! As for backup size, if you have 10 gigs of Gmail space used, you will have about the same on the saved backup. I highly recommend this software if you have a Mac and as a former Windows user with Gmail Backups, you can’t beat the price. One suggestion is it would be really nice to have a built in viewer of the backup emails. I give this 5 stars!
The purpose of this application is to create a backup of ones gmail account. This program does not seem to be able to do that. Clearly is a waste of money. Sad.
Failed to do the job
It failed to back up gmail. Specifically, it backed up everything to sometime in 2013 and then omitted every more recent email from the backup. The cause was probably that the the app took so long that I needed to shut off the computer to transport it while it was still in 2013. When I restarted the computer and ran the app to finish the job, it declared that it was finished, and even put a little green “checkmark” on the icon. But it was missing everything from 2014. I don’t want to have to restart it from scratch, only to deal with the same issue down the road.
Works great! Life saver!!
I was devastated when my emails went missing from all of my Gmail folders. I immediately went searching for an email back up and BackUp Gmail has been working great! It definitely brings me peace of mind. Davide is also very prompt and supportive to any needs or questions - Thanks Davide!
The application works well but I’m trying to find out if it backs up the sent folder…. Can’t find any reference to backing up sent items in either the FAQ or application itself.
