Wondering what will happen when you delete or rename some of the folders on Flickr? Will PicBackMan delete those from your system as well. No need to worry at all. PicBackMan will not make any change on your system.

For example if you uploaded photos in folder ‘A’ and later you rename it to ‘B’ on Flickr and do not make any change to the folders on your computer system. Then in that case, in the next upload session, PicBackMan will create a folder ‘A’ and continue to upload photos in this folder. Because the folder on your system is named ‘A’ and if PicBackMan doesn’t find the same folder name on Flickr it will create a new one.

FYI : Kindly note that PicBackMan doesn’t do a two way synch, it just UPLOAD photos, and never delete any photo or set.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
