"Wouldn't do the initial backup"
Easy to install, good interface.
Refused to back up even a single file.
I fed it just a single folder with 31 files, 68MB. It said "initial backup in progress," (or something to that effect), but after leaving the PC sitting for 30 minutes, it showed that it had backed up 0 files. Tried everything - no good. Made sure nothing was running, and dIsabled my AVG antivirus (I thought that might be the problem). I have no router, only the WinXP firewall (no, I refuse to disable that!), and a clean, fully patched system, with a nice, fast, 1mpbs upload speed.
I'm a retired computer jockey (programmer, LAN manager, sysadmin, etc.), so I know what I'm doing. If I can't get this product to work, it must be real garbage.
