I couldn't believe just how well it worked. I tested it be making a recovery file for a folder, and then made changes to the original to see if the program could recover them. It worked like a charm! It even recovered files that I had deleted from the folder; and this was at the 25% redundancy level (dictates how much recovery is possible). It is also possible to set the redundancy level above 100% so that you can recover files even if the ECC recovery file itself is corrupted! The size of the recovery file is significant, however. If you wanted to backup a CD, the ECC file would be approximately 200MB. This may seem a bit large, but as a "backup for you backup" its not too bad. Personally I think you should still make a full backup of important files- the program does have its limitations and is really only used for data loss due to digital corruption; it won't work if you accidentally delete large chunks of data. This is a unique program and worth getting.
Excellent program that can prevent you from data loss over long periods of time. Ice ECC is so well written and designed that it's perfect for protecting your files over the long haul.
