    "Fail - Did not work for me"

    February 5, 2013  |   By meclif


    Why do I have to enter a Pro when I have none? Free?


    I used this software over a year ago, but I keep getting a notice a new version is available, so I had to write this quick review. My PC crashed and I thought, no problem, I have a backup (from this software). Went to use the backup and it failed - would not restore at all, no matter what I tried! I am a "burn me once" kind of guy, no more chances for this one. I am always amazed by how many "new versions" there are for this program. Why is that? Bugs maybe? How much can you update a backup program?


    I will try (almost) anything once, but that is all you get when it comes to backup. Too important to risk a failure. This one failed once for me, that is enough.
