Syncback wont stay pinned to start menu

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Syncback wont stay pinned to start menu

Post by needowelum » Sat Dec 15, 2018 8:28 pm

I just recently updated to the latest version of Syncback portable. I have Syncback pinned to the start menu. When I exit Syncback, it immediately disappears from the start menu. Also, even when I repin it, it still never shows up in the Start menu index area to the left of the tiles.

I'd also like to say, respectfully, that this site is a little difficult to navigate. Perhaps that is by design?

If you go to help and support page, the is no link back to the main page, or the Forum.

Apparently, the login information required for the help and support page is different than it is elsewhere, like the forum. Unlike for the forum, I am asked for an email. My email, which is in my profile, is not recognized in the login process

There is a very circuitous route to the portable downloads. I can't imagine how a newcomer would ever find them or even know they exist.

Finally, why don't you post the current version and date on the home page? I feel like I have to hunt that info down.

Thanks

Could somebody tell me where to download the previous version of Syncback portable?

Hi,

FYI, we don't provide download links to previous versions of SyncBackFree since we think that users should always have the latest version possible, as it is free and also includes fixes and improvements.

Also regarding the forum and the help/support websites, these two are totally different sites, each one with its own credentials. When you visit the help/support page you can go back to the main site by clicking the 2BrightSparks logo on the top left of the page.

Finally about the shortcut problem, since you are using the portable version I assume you create your own shortcut link which then you pin to the start menu. Try renaming the link filename to a different name and pin that to the start menu instead.

Thanks,
Kostas
