In an independent test, NovaBACKUP leaves competitors behind

Softonic is Europe’s leading and the world’s second software download site with more than 105,000 freeware, shareware and trial version software titles, 2 million downloads per day and 45 million content users. The company seeks to maintain a reputation of only recommending the highest quality products, so vendor neutral Softonic editors evaluate and review each software program themselves.

After testing NovaBACKUP 11.1 on June 15th, 2010, Softonic editors commented on its ease-of-use and a great feature-richness. In the review summary, Softonic concluded that, “NovaBACKUP leaves hardly a thing to ask for. Wizards with a clear structure and a wide range of features enable the professional use of the product.“

NovaBACKUP received 9 points out of 10, with the only criticism being that the simple view interface has a minimalist design.  According to Softonic’s review NovaBACKUP 11.1 provides a better backup solution than many renowned competitors.

„With Softonic being an independent market leader on the worldwide software market, NovaStor is more than pleased that NovaBACKUP has not only been awarded a rating of ‘excellent‘, but has also achieved an independent test confirming the superior quality of NovaBACKUP to competing products by companies like ACRONIS“, says Mike Andrews, Managing Director at NovaStor.
