Where to get help for 2BrightSpark's products
We understand the difficulty
that people have when using a new software, no matter how user-friendly
it may be. That is why we offer an extensive variety of support for
our products: KnowledgeBase, FAQs, Tutorials, an active Forum, and
the Support Ticketing system. So that you’re aware of these valuable
before you need them, take a look at our Support Center:
The help files for SyncBackSE
and OnClick Utilities are easily accessed either via the program menu,
as PDF help files that you can download,

and you might be missing out on something very useful:
Hi. I am Richard Gascoigne,
and I handle finance, administration and some marketing for 2BrightSparks.
My background is many years (I’m not telling how many) doing software
marketing, support and administration. I first helped Mick Leaver and
Mike de Sousa as a volunteer back when SyncBack was just a great freeware
product, and finally joined full-time as the company got ready to release
its first commercial product, SyncBackSE.
We still do offer the great freeware version – that’s part of what we
view as our social responsibility. But, by commercializing SyncBackSE,
we could afford to build a small, fun, company to improve and support
it, and to develop yet more applications for our customers.
Even though we’ve doubled in size (six, and one more coming), we try
to keep the same spirit – both internally and with respect to our customers
and partners. We believe that life isn’t just about work. So, to give
ourselves maximum flexibility, we run a “virtual office” (That’s a $10
word that means we all work from our homes). Everyone has their jobs
to do, and does them - without benefit of a 9 to 5 office.
It works well for us, thanks to email, Skype, and the occasional “company
meeting” at a convenient pub. Most importantly, though, is that we only
bring in smart, motivated people who do their jobs without being micro-managed.
You will be hearing from each of them in subsequent newsletters. Stay
tuned, and don’t forget to encourage your friends to backup their data
- with SyncBackSE!

We have added a few more articles since the last newsletter:
Backup Using FTP
The next most important task after backing up your data files is to ensure
that your backups are stored safely, preferably offsite. This article
details the different kinds of secure FTP protocols, and presents an
easy to use software solution that assists with backing up to a server
File compression enables a computer user to reduce the size of a data
file so that it is more convenient for storage or sharing. Many of us
have experienced difficulties in sending data files like text documents
and digital photos via email because the file size is just too great.
Find out about the different kinds of compression and how useful it is.
