I has been a while waiting FarStone to release the new version of TotalRecovery 9. This new version has added a few new features, such as differential backup, very powerful disk & ssd cloning, smart backup, one-click backup & restore, and so on. I think the most important improvements for FarStone are 2 folds.
Stability: They product runs flawless Support: They got new support staff, doing good job.
maybe online backup portion. I heard they are working on this.
farstone is now on the track, the product is good, their services are great.
After spending 2 hours writing a complete PC backup to a network share I discovered it had created 12 files with a total size of.... 0 bytes. Somehow I don't think I would be able to restore my PC with that backup..
Wouldn't be so bad if it actually notified you that something had gone wrong but it didn't, it simply announced that the backup had completed successfully. Don't think I could ever trust this program now, even if it did actually write some data...
In theory, it's a one click backup in restore. But in practice, that's is far from the whole story.
I found this product lacking in so many ways. In February, I purchased TotalRecovery Tools, made lots of backups, and to my dismay, I found there's no way to restore these backups with the software I bought. The restore function is absent entirely from the user interface. I tried to contact customer service for help or a refund, but they never replied at all.
Now, 6 months later, I decided to try again with Total Recovery Pro. It seems to have all the functions, but the subtleties are not explained well in the documentation, which seems to written by a non-native English speaker. There are many sentences which just don't make sense at all.
Once I finally go to the point of doing a restore, low and behold, my 6 month old version of the TRT produced files that don't work with TRP! By luck (not by documentation) I found old recovery disk images that are downloadable. If I had known about these first, I could have save the purchase price of Total Recovery Pro.
All in all, this was very frustrating. Poor documentation, poor customer support, and it doesn't preserve the backup format between releases.
This product makes computer life much easier and allows you to sleep better at night. So far it has worked flawlessly. Don't know how I got along without it in past years. It is easy to use and I can trust it.
Haven't found anything yet that I thought was a negative. Few programs have that kind of successful development. Speaks well for both the developers and management.
I continue to recommend this to everyone without reservations. So far no one has been disappointed. Excellent product and reasonably priced. Email questions were responded to well within a 24 hour period. Great product and company.
