    I'm not sure what happened with the people that were concerned about backing up open PST files, as that was a key focus during my appraisal and it worked absolutely perfectly in the restoration tests I have done. I'm incredibly impressed with how easy this package was to install and use, and after spending the past month testing about 20 different programs including the big boys in the closed source community like Unitrends and Veeam, in my mind URBackup wins hands down!

    I was looking for a way to do "partition" backups and to have an "incremental" option - and UrBackup not just delivers - it over-delivers! And yes - it works both on Windows Server and non-server/workstations! :) I have almost a dozen computers now being backed up - all working beautifully, and best of all - I can restore the entire VHD back if I want, or just copy the files I need. It uses VSS for grabbing the snapshot, so no need to reboot in order to grab a copy of the HDD. All in all - my favorite so far! And very easy to set up and configure through the web interface. On the downside - when you use it for a "file copy" it actually copies all files including all the temporary files and garbage in the browser cache, so make sure to set up filters to avoid that. On the up side - it can set up "symbolic links" so your "incremental backups" will look awesome and realistic while at the same time saving you 95% of the hdd usage! :)
