VFP review

What do you like best?

I like the easiest way the VFP provides to deal with the DBF tables using VFP code, also I like that it works easily with SQL tables using SQLEXEC function, also its IDE is very productive while programming and debugging as it provides some helpful tools to debug like Watch, local memory, Call stack, etc..

What do you dislike?

The big problem with VFP, is its DBF table's limitation as it became corrupted after it reaches more that 2GB, also sometimes when its memo field being corrupted, you won't be able to use the table until you release this corruption, also sometimes some crashes happened for no reasons, and last and not least it is not supported officially by Microsoft.

VFP the easiest way to deal with tables

What do you like best?

I like the easy way to access and manage DBF data, I really like the smart tools provided to trace a problem as it allows me to catch the programming command with problem in a very few steps and it allows me to check the call stack in any part of execution, also it provides a great code behind feature, it allows me to either enter all the code in the screen's methods or to just call a function from a separate program, it allows me to create our custom controls and forms and use it in all our programming work as a framework

What do you dislike?

I don't like the DBF size limitation and its UI needs to be enhanced

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily programming work in our live old products

Nothing much as I believe I need a guiding materials for other tool and features that I don't know how to use.

functional software

What do you like best?

This software is very functional, however the user interface is not so friendly. I think it could be more modern and optimize its appearance in order to make it more pleasant

What do you dislike?

it's really like a retrospective to the past for my taste is not nice visually it's like something old-fashioned could be much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very stable program but at the same time very basic its interface is very old and the image is not so friendly or does not have a harmonious design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

this type of software allows to organize many of the processes of orders dispatches of consumables and rotables of the organization but it does not have connection in real time to request replenishment of stock in the organization that is why it is limited

Very easy and reliable backup but pricey

What do you like best?

This product works well, and is easy to set up. It is not just backup, but also backup and data recovery.

What do you dislike?

Its pricey compared to other backup solutions so you have to weigh that against its shininess.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at Storage Craft, or Cloudberry. If you still need BDR (i.e. bare metal restore in the cloud) this is an easy way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BDR - namely you can spin up a copy of a workstation or server in the cloud in less than 30 minutes using this product. It also backs up and archives files.
