Genie Timeline Home 10 vs Genie Timeline Pro 10

When you count all the different ways to compare Genie Timeline Pro 10 vs Genie Timeline Home 10, you will find that there are actually three differences; Encryption Option, Advanced Settings Tab and Backup Scheduling. We will highlight an extra 3 features that Genie Timeline Pro 10 has.

Enable Encryption Option

Genie Timeline offers an enhanced level of protection to ensure that backed up data is not accessible to unauthorized people. With a 256-AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption, the backed up data is highly secure. Genie9 is always keen to adopt “National Institute of Standards and Technology” standards as the Federal Information Processing Standard approved. Also the use of symmetric encryption algorithm that is used by U.S. Government organizations (and others) to protect sensitive information.

Everyone has a responsibility to ensure that sensitive information and assets, wherever they’re from, are appropriately protected from the moment they are created until their verified destruction, and Genie Timeline Pro is the app to reach this!

Advanced Settings Tab

Advanced Settings tab enables you to control and adjust some of the below features:

  • Full Scan: It scans all your data selections on all drive locations for new and changed files, in case the drive does not support real time monitor.
  • Disaster Recovery Backup interval: It’s designed to backup Disaster Recovery files at a different time interval than the regular schedule.
  • Enable Deduplication: This will save a lot of space, Genie Timeline Pro intelligently backs up only one copy of duplicate files and references all other duplicates to that file, therefore, if you need to restore the file, it will be restored to all its correct locations. This will reduce the used space on the drive.

Backup Schedule

The flexibility of backup scheduling is wide under Genie Timeline Pro and has many options to set it as your needs, user can run one backup job at any time (At night, while he/she is at work…etc.)

Bottom line

Genie Timeline Pro 10 gives you all the tools you need to protect and save files and versions, and even to get a downed PC up and running again. True, you could just use Windows’ included File History feature, but Genie wraps the functionality in a more accessible interface and adds some niceties, such as File Explorer integration and backup reports. It’s a perfectly acceptable option, I certainly recommend it since it’s efficient and affordable.

  1. Thank you Jacky for your reply and information.
    I was looking for something referencing Genie 10 and couldn’t seem to locate anything beyond ads and useless FAQs.
    Although I’m quite upset with the application, I “may” (?) give it a try again if I can get some support.
