Having used this program for a number of years and found it keeps computer clean there are a few annoying features in recent version releases. these are,
1. The safe internet surfing feature that wants to install without
giving the user proper control over the decision to. You have to
deny installation 3 times to stop the message popping up, logging
off windows each time you make the choice to deny installation.
How about giving the user proper choice!
2. When your license expires and you need to renew it again you
have to go through the above stupid safe internet internet
installation all over again.
3. The annoying popup ad at the end of update, as another reviewer has
stated, has never been taken out. As this may be a small thing it
does add to user frustration when using the product.
Now I realize that this is a freeware program and you have the choice
if you want to buy the program or not but how about freeware from the
excessive advertising campaign. I would be more likely to buy it if
people like avira stopped annoying people with consistent ads and
program modules that give user no installation choice.
I will still use it because I still find it effective, but there will come a time when I will get annoyed enough and just switch to something else.
Have tried a lot of programs to try and come up with the easiest and best method of maintaining computer backups, But this one is the one I prefer to use. Is effective & easy to use and does a good job. The menu system is pretty easy to learn and the help file gives good descriptive information if you need help on some of the definitions of the menu items. Have tried all the features of this program and they work well. The only possible negative I could find, and it is a small one is if you want to move image files to different drives it is not so straight forward. Overall a very good effective program that could be learned by most people with a small amount of time invested. Still can't believe it is freeware. Might also be worth an upgrade to get the snapshot feature.
