The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.0
Iomega QuikProtect is an application designed to offer automatic backup for the data files on your computer, creating backup folders without interrupting your work.

The layout of the main screen is very simple and suggestive.
It includes straightforward sections such as "What", "Where" and "When," which make it very easy for you to access the main functions of the application. Thus, you will quickly grasp the steps you should follow for this process. First, choose the files that you wish the program to protect, by accessing the "What" screen. You will notice that the program provides protection for a number of folders by default and that you are able to modify them according to your interest. By accessing the "Where" screen, you may select the destination where you wish Iomega QuikProtect to send the protected files. Finally, you may preset a specific time at which you want the application to backup your files by visiting the "When" section.

Another appreciable characteristic of Iomega QuikProtect is that it stores backup files only once, which is important because, thus, it will not overload the database. It means that, if you have decided to backup files according to a schedule, it will not store the same files every time the program starts running, but only when the files have been modified.

All in all, Iomega QuikProtect proves to be a very helpful backup application, which can be conveniently used by anyone who wishes to secure the data files on their system.


  • User-friendly.
  • No special software needed.


  • None.

    In Windows 7, the QuickProtect startup needs elevation when the user is a non-admin user. Most standard users just cancel the startup of QuickProtect.

    I installed it in a Windows server 2011 64 bits and it works.

    I went through the 64 bit issues.
    Now I can see the Iomega network hard drive in QuickProtect but it won't let me select anything.
