Review Genie Timeline
Do you spend most of the week or month manually backing up the files or folders you consider essential on your computer? Then you should know that there is no need to do so since there are applications that take care of these tasks for us, and although there are several that could well be recommended, in this case, we decided to stop at Genie Timeline.
As we were saying, Genie Timeline is software that has been developed to give us a hand when it comes to making backup copies of important contents stored on our PC, such as all kinds of files or folders. The truth is that the system remains open in the background, running all the time and discreetly carrying out the tasks that we have requested.
What kind of content can Genie Timeline protect through these backup copies? Once we have configured its operation, almost any type of content will offer us the possibility of safeguarding elements such as our e-mails, the desktop with its applications and others, office suite files, images saved on the computer, or our Internet browser's favorites.
As you can see, Genie Timeline is a platform that allows us to have total compatibility when choosing which contents we want to protect from our computers so that they are entirely safe. Undoubtedly, two of its strong points have to do with this support for all types of files and, on the other hand, its perfect integration with the Windows operating system.
And we say the latter because once you have installed Genie Timeline on your computer, you will find that you only have to right-click on any of the contents you have on your computer to be able to protect it. Even when a particular file or archive is not one that you should theoretically protect, thanks to this application, you can manually back it up in seconds.
Another interesting detail is that access to all the stored data that Genie Timeline has is done in just seconds, at any time, so you will always be able to view all the elements stored within the service. Of course, the greater the amount of material we keep on our PC, the more necessary it may be to have this kind of software, so if this is your case, you should seriously evaluate it.
In the same way, and as you make backup copies on your computer, Genie Timeline will show you a timeline in which you will see the dates on which they have been made. This is interesting, considering that you can recover the contents as they were at a particular moment without limiting yourself to the last available version.
Finally, and although this goes a bit beyond what this tool has to offer us in itself, we must recommend that when you go to make backups of this type, always bet on creating a specific fragmentation on the hard drive, which is there to protect all critical data, because otherwise and in case of irreversible damage, no backup you have made will be of any help.
The user interface of Genie Timeline, like any other program we review, can also be important, especially for those who are more or less focused on the aesthetic aspect than on the functioning of an application. In this case, we give it a passing grade since its interface has everything we expect: it is clear, has icons and colors, and is pleasant and modern. In short, this software undoubtedly has one of the best visual finishes in its field.
We will now list some of the main positive aspects or advantages of Genie Timeline, starting with how easy it is to use this system without losing sight of the fact that it allows you to select which contents to save in detail. In the same way, we can choose to restore a complete backup or only part of it, and last but not least, it stands out because it works automatically in the background.
And what did we like the least about Genie Timeline? First of all, we were not very pleased that some of the functions of this free version of the program are disabled, as they are essential and not advanced. On the other hand, it is not a service that allows us to establish specific profiles, which would save us a lot of time in some cases.
In summary, we believe that Genie Timeline is an excellent tool that should be installed on your computer by those with a vast amount of stored elements and who want to protect them by employing a backup copy. If you like this type of solution, we are undoubtedly in the presence of a service that perfectly fulfills its mission, without fanfare but flaws or significant weaknesses.
