IvyBackup review: Promising, open format, but not quite ready for prime time

Open-standard file containers and dual destinations are program highlights, but error-handling and workflow streamlining need improvement.

IvyBackup review
  • Expert Rating

    3.00 / 5


  • Backups are in common .zip and .vhd formats
  • Generally easy to use
  • Competent feature set


  • Interface glitches
  • Poor pre-backup error checking

Bottom Line

IvyBackup sports a clean look, and saves in common Zip and VHD formats. However, it didn't check if there was enough space for its image backups, which caused ssome unlogged failures.
