    "Beginner-to-Average Computer Users, Stay Away!"

    October 22, 2011  |   By amiekim


    I didn't get that far.


    Too much jargon, even in the first few set-up windows.


    The first few configuration windows used backup jargon that I knew nothing about, and there were no explanations provided. I am better with computers than the average bear, but this was jargon that I've never encountered before. I gave up installing it/setting it up, midway. Instead, I installed FBackup. FBackup wasn't ideal, either, but I was able to get it set up coarsely and I ran my first backup within 10 minutes. I can go back later and fine tune it. I don't recommend Cobian unless you're a computer techie.
