User Reviews

  • Overall there are a lot of nice features included with this project. There is a lot of work and good programming in this package, but not all of the goals are fully realized and due to the number of unresolved bugs and seemingly low level of support, this package is not ready for prime time. I tried several attempts of getting it to work as a network backup solution (small home net of a couple machines) and received various errors and failures. If there was any error at all it simply crashed. For a single machine with no open files or a data drive, it seems to work fine but not a live system or any kind of unreadable, locked, pup-malware etc file. The biggest feature to repair would be to fix the missing VSS function, otherwise it is $$ware to continue using this even with its other faults. Read the other user forum comments ... will keep looking ETA... Couldn't get the x64 version to work on Win10x64 even with the posted workaround (bing search) but the x32 version did start just fine of W10x64.
