About

DataBoss v2.4, new and improved. Custom and regular versions are both available!. Unique offer: YOUR legacy lasts forever in the title credits. Zero-wait delivery: immediately use the previous v2.3.1 for free while awaiting this v2.4 release. 

This Kickstarter is a LIMITED EDITION of only 50 copies altogether, and only runs for 14 short days.  Get yours before they are all gone.


We are all buried under the digital pile.

Photos, videos, you name it.

There's just no way to instantly find that photo. Not from last year, not from last week. There are too many files in the pile. The pile keeps growing. The problem is getting bigger. It's as if the files just disappear into the digital abyss.

What if there was a way for you to free yourself from being buried under that data pile? What if you could find anything you need, anytime you want?


The solution: DataBoss.

This smart, reliable software will sort out your digital pile. Finally you'll be able to easily FIND any file, anytime.

For example, quickly and easily find that particular photo you are looking for. Just when you need it. Aah, that's what I'm talking about! 


Happy St Patrick's Day!  Have you found your Easter photos yet?

If you: 

  • take photos or videos, professionally or for home use  
  • wish you could preserve, then easily find all your data, at any time as needed
  • want your files and descriptions to stay private (Data Boss uses its own fast database and search engine - NO exposure to the cloud or any third-party service!)
  • require a stable and reliable system that works without a hitch and never loses your data (we never had a problem since the year 2014 inception)
  • you don't have the time to enter tags for each and every image

 ...then 

This DataBoss v2.4 Kickstarter is for you!

We developed DataBoss software for our own production company back in the year 2014 out of necessity, as nothing else was satisfactory. 

Since then, the software went through a number of fantastic improvements - see Release Log page on our web site DataBoss.one 

But now we have MORE and BETTER features (list below) to add, so version 2.4 will be the best one yet - and you get it at a huge discount exclusively here on this Kickstarter! 

Software development costs money. Thus this Kickstarter.

We offer you the most advanced version of DataBoss in exchange for your small contribution on this crowdfunding campaign - just a fraction of the actual costs people pay at our web site. Because, Kickstarter!

Please support DataBoss, and get the world's easiest yet really smart backup and search software for a small fraction of its normal cost! (Did we mention, DataBoss is also very reliable, real-world tested since the year 2014, and is super fast and easy to use for both professionals and home users? Yup, all that.) Rock-solid, too: in all this time, it never once crashed on us or other DataBoss users.

Customized with your name or your company name

Your DataBoss software will be customized personally for you by a human designer, featuring your name prominently at the top of the software window. 

A real person will lovingly customize your software copy with the name you tell us. Awesome for dedications, to put your own personal touch on this wonderful software, and even for the gifts or professional work.

(Or get a regular version, your choice - see Choosing Your Reward above.) 

All at a super low cost, only on this Kickstarter! You may not get another chance at the prices this low for the software this good. 

OFFERED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: 

Leave a lasting impression and a LEGACY

DataBoss v2.4 will have the new initialization titles (similar to, say, Photoshop) where you will see a list of people who helped developing this software. 

Leave an impression and get yourself credited in DataBoss'  titles! Show your friends and colleagues you made an important contribution to the software development. Your own name, company name, or dedication - your legacy will stay listed from now and forever!


Choosing your Reward

Please note, this Kickstarter is a LIMITED EDITION of only 50 altogether. This is an opportunity for you to save big bucks, but the opportunity window is short at only 14 days and 50 copies. Get yours before it is gone.

How to choose:

----- If you'd like it customized with your own name / company name / dedication to someone special:

$29: DataBoss v2.4 Customized with your name, Limited Edition, EARLY BIRD

$39: same after the Early Bird sells out

$59 - $129 DataBoss v2.4 Customized with your name, Limited Edition plus free upgrades for you up to v3.0 

----- If you'd like a regular (Not customized) software edition:

$20: DataBoss v2.4 regular, EARLY BIRD

$30: same after the Early Bird sells out

$54 - $124 DataBoss v2.4 regular plus free upgrades for you up to v3.0


This Kickstarter is for version 2.4, but the development continues rapidly. So it's wise to choose v2.4-3.0 or v2.4-2.7 free upgrades options, too. More savings to you!

How to get credited in the DataBoss' opening titles: just add $30 to your chosen reward's amount to get listed and to leave your undying legacy as the software development supporter. 

Alternatively, a separate $35 reward is available. Your name will be credited in the Title Credits of DataBoss forever. 

Thank you.


How easy it is to use DataBoss:

NEW FEATURES in this DataBoss v 2.4:

NEW: Search not only by keywords, but also by file name / extension (full or partial)

NEW: Narrow the search by Dates

NEW: Search for plurals will also return the singular results (unless entered as a "strict search" in quote marks.) Example: trees will find both trees and tree.

When this Kickstarter is funded, you will get DataBoss v2.4 with all these awesome new features - and at huge savings vs our regular $129.99 price. How awesome is that!

Extended Goal! 

If we actually collect 2K or more for this project, we'll add another superb feature: a thumbnail preview of the backup right in the Catalog, for each record. Kind of like your personal Plex in DataBoss v2.4. Fingers crossed! 


 The Schedule:  

When will you get this software: very quickly!
     Zero-wait delivery: you will receive Data Boss v 2.3.1 (the previous version) immediately after the pledges are collected in April '2019. Then, Data Boss v 2.4 (this version) should be ready and delivered to you in May '2019 or earlier as released. In the meantime you will be covered no matter what.

Check out what DataBoss can do - download a Free Trial of the previous version v2.3 from our site or from CNET to appreciate how easy-to-use, yet smart and stable it is.

Guess what? This Kickstarter's DataBoss version 2.4 will be even better!


The DataBoss secret

We have developed a proprietary algorithm to quickly find your data by combining both the files' hidden Metadata and your own human-language descriptions. Less work for you. Awesome!

DataBoss even has its own custom search engine, a-la Google. Because everything in DataBoss including its search engine is local to your PC, your data never hits the cloud, so it stays completely private!

This isn't the first time we wrote our own custom software to fulfill a specific need. As far back as the year 1999, we've received a $1,000 Microsoft Award for excellence in programming. Our previous hit software, RAW 4 PRO (also funded here on Kickstarter!) has been enjoying FIVE STAR user rating on Amazon and other sites for a couple years now. It is a go-to tool for people in the need of the RAW DNG or JPG sequences to HD Video conversion. (Note: R4P is managed by another company now since we sold the code/rights.)

DataBoss' previous versions are featured on both CNET and Amazon. So we have pretty solid credentials delivering software to many users and supporting our customers religiously.

Specifications:

  • Runs on Windows 10, 8, 7; x32 or x64 bit architecture.
  • Desktops, laptops, or tablets are all fine to run DataBoss. Even a cheap $70 tablet will do.
  • DataBoss One v2.4  can work with all internal or external drives that have a letter assigned (including mapped network or cloud drives!) Just insert your source media (a memory card or drive, for example) so your PC can see it, then start DataBoss. Easy!
  • Backs up your media to one or two targets (fantastic for data safety, for example on the photo or video shoot. Do it in-house or out in the field - because, tablets/laptops!)
  • Allows you to quickly describe your media in human terms (ex. "New York - Times Square at night, people sitting on the red stairs") while the backup is still running. Saves your time by multitasking.
  • Allows you to easily and instantly find your data later - even years later - by both your description and media data. No need to tag every file manually! Saves your time by smart processing, only available in DataBoss.
  • Finds your data even if the original backup drive is currently disconnected!
  • ...and more!

New features - awesome and super useful - are being regularly developed and added. Support available to the DataBoss users via email, with less than 24 hours meaningful response guaranteed. 


Awesome Search feature, shaky but true video of it :)
