    "Seems effective"

    September 4, 2010  |   By cdobbs


    Free, software is always a Pro. Appears to load and operate, and perform backup


    no instructions. Time Remaining not set but continued to adjust. No way to estimate the pocess time. Back up of 58 Gig Drive took 5 hours. Seems awefully long. Tried incremental back up. Not sure if that worked or not.


    Still not sure of like or dislike. Like an insurance policy. You dont know how good it is until you need it, and if you're lucky you never will.

    58G/5 hours: 3MB/s... That is SLOW.

    Trouble with most backup programs is that they are just way slower than they need to be or should be.

    That said, 3MB/s is fast compared to the restore time of GenieSoft's Timeline professional, over a 1Gb network: was running around 180KB/s. To restore a 90GB HD would have taken over 10 days.

    Not very useful. This compared to MS's *builtin* (to windows 7) restore, which took about 25 minutes, averaging over 60MB/s (this is from the OS CD in system restore mode, NOT with a booted OS, where I can get as much as 119MB/s w/ large read.
