luckyBackup - backup and sync utility for Linux and Windows

I've been using luckyBackup for years and love it! I found it in my Fedora Linux Repository's, several years ago. I'm building a Windows 7 System for someone today and looked at the Web Site, to see if there is a Windows Version. I thought I had seen one, in the past... There is a Windows Version. But, it is in early development, right now (04-15-14). There are detailed instructions on how to install luckyBackup, in Windows here... http://www.bmtsolutions.us/wiki/doku.php?id=contrib:luckybackup-win. It will take a bit of time and I will have to follow the instructions. So, I will get back to it, later. When I have time. I hope they are able to keep on working on luckyBackup. I have tried several other Linux and Windows Backup Apps and it is my Favorite...

Greetings!

The great news is that on the 1st of April (no joke!) the SourceForge platform graduated at the Apache Software Foundation, and it's now called Apache Allura(TM)! We are very excited about this news and we look forward to engaging more with all developers and end-users who are interested in using, testing, and improving our beloved forge!

Since the last newsletter, we've gone to ApacheCon to have fun and discuss possibilities with other Apache committers, and as this message goes out, we'll still be at PyCon meeting other Pythonistas and running our sprint!

This month, we'll also be honoring two projects: Free Pascal as our Community Choice chosen by a public vote, and Apache OpenOffice Extensions as our Staff Pick.

April Projects of the Month - Community Choice and Staff Pick

The Community Choice April Project of the Month is Free Pascal, an advanced open source compiler for Pascal and Object Pascal. Read our interview with the project's founder. Congratulations to the Free Pascal project on being voted as the April 2014 Community Choice POTM.

The Staff Pick Project of the Month is the Apache OpenOffice Extensions project. SourceForge has re-engineered the Apache OpenOffice Extensions site to make it a better home for OpenOffice extensions. If you want to know more about the new features we have made available read them at our blog.


Major Site News

Our site developers continue to work tirelessly to offer up new features on the site. Here's a quick summary of one of the new changes this month.

We've expanded the "include" wiki macro to import content from a Source Code Repository. This means you can keep your documentation in your repository and it'll automatically update in the wiki. See more in our blog.

Best Free Antivirus Software Lists

Here's a list I like to read, for good info on good Antivirus Software. When I help people who run Windows, Clean up their infected Systems. My favorite, was Avast for Windows. Until the last few years. When the dropped some features, in the Free Version. But, it's Rates #1 on moist sites. I tried out Comodo, back when the Firewall came with it for Free. It was good, but took a little getting use to the interface. But, not it seems to have more Features in the Free Version, than most of the others, in the list. Read on for more info...

  Go straight to the Quick Selection Guide
 
Introduction

Antivirus software provides an essential layer of protection from viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers, and rootkits. Don't let the name antivirus confuse you. These days every good antivirus has good detection rates for all forms of malware, not just viruses. The term malware includes viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers, rootkits, and any other software which performs malicious activities on a computer.

 

Sadly, the amount of malware currently in circulation is so large that no antivirus could possibly detect all of it. Despite vendor's claims, no single antivirus solution can detect nearly all new malware. There are some products out there, including some in this review, which include technologies which are able to adequately protect a computer, but any product which relies mainly on detection is statistically doomed to fail at some time. Also, using more than one real-time antivirus at the same time uses much more system resources, can cause system errors, and can even reduce protection. For my advice on how to compensate for these weakness of antivirus products, to a large extent, please see my other article about How to Stay Safe While Online. Having a good antivirus product does go a large way towards adequately protecting your computer, but in this day I would highly recommend that you add additional layers to your security.

 

Below I have reviewed some of the most effective Free Antivirus products currently on the market. In order to make this review more unbiased, although of course my own intuition and experience does affect my judgment as well, I came up with a particular methodology for comparing these products. This methodology is described in the following section.

 
Methodology For Comparing Products

Skipping on down...

Discussion And Comparison

Comodo Antivirus is my top pick for advanced users or for Intermediate users who are okay with an antivirus software which will occasionally ask them for input. However, if you do not fall into those categories, or for any other reason find it to not be a good fit for you, then you will likely find my next pick suitable. Also, for those who prefer a complete solution, there is always Comodo Internet Security, which is also free and includes a firewall in addition to all other components which already come with Comodo Antivirus.

The reason I made this my top pick for advanced users or users who are okay with a somewhat talkative antivirus software, is because it is the only product which I feel confident saying that it will protect you against nearly 100% of real-world threats. I have a lot of experience with this product. I am a volunteer moderator on the Comodo forums and have been using it for a long time. I know this product very well, and am entirely confident in its ability to protect.

Comodo Antivirus uses the cloud to facilitate the detection of the most recent malware, as do many other Free Antiviruses reviewed in this article. However, Comodo also incorporates a Behavioral Blocker, which will automatically sandbox all software which it does not know for sure is safe. Thus, the user is protected from nearly all malware, which will either be detected by the antivirus component or sandboxed by the Behavioral Blocker. It will also analyze unknown applications for suspicious behavior, and alert the user accordingly.

However, as mentioned previously, users who do not want a somewhat talkative antivirus should continue to my next pick. Also, by default Comodo Antivirus has small advertisements (which can be disabled as shown here). Also, during installation users should be sure to click the Customize Installer option, which is near the bottom-left of the installation window. This will allow them to uncheck additional software, which the installer will automatically install with Comodo Antivirus unless unchecked. This software is not dangerous and includes a browser, and ad-blocking addon, and an optional paid service which would allow Comodo technicians to assist you with any computer problems you have. These, and a later option to change your homepage to support Comodo, can safely be unchecked during installation. Even with this extra hassle, this software is still my top pick, but I do wish they made the process simpler.

 

Avast! Free Antivirus is has very good protection rates. Avast has many different protection shields, boot-time scanning, a behavioral blocker, an internet site ratings plugin, script malware protection, and access to cloud-based protection. It's arguable whether their ratings plugin offers comparable levels to WOT, but the script malware protection can prevent certain browser exploits, a feature not available in any of the other free AV's reviewed.

Avast is also relatively light on resources. However, do note that Avast requires a free registration to function after 30 days, and the default installation installs the Chrome browser unless you uncheck it.

 

Panda Cloud Antivirus is another excellent choice for average users, who may find both Comodo Antivirus and Avast too confusing. It has a simple interface, completely automated features, access to cloud-based protection, and has been shown to be very good at protecting a computer. Panda Cloud Antivirus has a behavioral blocker, web protection, and access to cloud-based protection, all of which will help increase your security.
