    This is a really good piece of software. I'm setting it up at work (deploying it with Linux). It's pretty amazing. I would donate money if I had money to donate with.

    This software is a real alternative to Acronis, Ghost and other mass-cloning solutions. After installation there was a minor issue regarding NTFS permissions oft the NFS-shared folders -- it took about 10 minutes to solve this after reading a thread in the support-forum. The Manual is rather short, it is reduced to the important thins -- there is no Need of studying hundreds of pages bevor doing the first test installations. Well done!
