"Ruined my Restore"
Easy to install
am reconstructing my computer after a hard drive failure. "Thank God I backed all my data up with Memeo," I said to myself. Little did I know how very wrong I was.
What is a backup program's most important function? To restore your files when that fateful day happens. Memeo fails to do this in a serious way. When you put in your new harddrive (which is what you're going to do when your old drive dies), Memeo attempts to restore by overwriting your backup with your new drive's contents.
Hard to believe? It's true. When you turn on Memeo and ask it to restore a backup to your computer, it first scans your computer and will overwrite any folders that exist on both your computer and your backup, before attempting the restore. Unbelieveable! I told myself that I must be reading the instructions incorrectly; nope, I double and triple checked.
I'm embarrassed for this company and how shoddy this product is. After being so diligent as to run a backup program, the last thing you want is to have the file restore fail on you.
Do you want to gamble your important files on a program that deletes them? Then buy Memeo.
