This review applies to version 1.5. The latest version of this software will soon be reviewed by our informers.

ArcSoft TotalMedia Backup & Record is a powerful yet easy to use solution that includes a wide range of burning and backup features with an unsurpassed level of usability. This incredible program allows you to make basic archival discs or restore documents, burn custom audio CDs or rip tracks with CDDB support, or create DVD movies from files on your hard drive. Moreover, the application features a very simple and intuitive user interface which does not need any technical knowledge to be operated and makes this task a breeze. What is more, the utility enables you to schedule automatic full or incremental backups of your your photos, videos, email, etc. You can also append data to previously burned discs, make exact copies of existing discs, make bootable CDs and DVDs, and quickly format and burn DVD-R/RW discs. As regards music, you also can make custom audio CDs for your car or home disc player, create Jukebox CDs using MP3, WMA, and WAV files, and much more. In addition to this, the program enables you to create DVD discs from unprotected sources, create and burn images of CDs and DVDs for future disc burning and archival purposes, and easily erase rewritable discs.


  • Easy to use. Simple and intuitive user interface. Great value for its price.


  • None.

    I am trying to restore a crashed external drive with ArcSoft and it continues to freeze up (not responding) after I choose a method with which to restore. I have lost all of my picture files if I can't get this software (on which I relied) to work.

    Although many sources identify Registry Fix as rogue ware and warn that the download contains viruses and/or other malware, I have never had a problem with it in the three years I have used it. In fact I have found it to be very efficient in cleaning the registry and have never found that it removed something it shouldn't. However the new version ,8, has a new feature, system tuneup which ,unless you know what you are doing, should be used with caution.

    You are right Brian, Arcsoft backup has some serious bugs and neither customer service nor their own forum will own up to it. I called their customer service to report that my backups would freeze after running all night -- just freeze no recovery, except to kill the program and lose my many hours of backup.. Cust Serv told me that is not a bug -- if I have included certain system files that Arcsoft cannot copy -- for example, if I tried to backup all of C -- the agent said,in effect, there is no way in software to prevent a freeze! Now I have many Arcsoft backup folders with .nbz files but no .nbp files. I don't recall losing those many backups so this may be another bug. Here is the same issue discussed on their forum (Arcsoft refuses to answer the users questions about the problem):
    Judge for yourself -- I suggest you obtain another backup program. Sorry about what you may have lost. But if you do find a solution, please post here and in the forum, there are many users needing an answer.
