"I have to admit I like it very much. Impressive !"

I did my first tests on 64-bit Win7 laptop and I have to admit I like it very much. Especially the Recovery Boot Manager which I created on Bootable 64-bit USB disk. Explorer view, mapping drives (I tested with other PCs and Synology NAS) and easy network setup. Impressive !. - Paul

"I find Farstone superior in ease and product."

I find Farstone superior in ease and product. I tried your trial version 10.03 today on a couple of Windows 8.1 computers and it worked great. Had to have it. While I have other major products for creating multiple backups (I learned the hard way) e.g. Acronis, Norton Ghost, Spotmau, Macrium Reflect, I find Farstone superior in ease and product. - Sal, California
