I bought a license for USB Safely Remove back in November with a promotional discount. (less than $20 - don't remember exactly) Have it installed on five machines at home and works fine.

One anomaly however. When I tried LastMail's website I got this:

I tend to agree. These are the kind of operations I can do without depending on clouds or webware. In fact, I've already done so; I gave my closest friend and beneficiary access to everything having to do with finances.

Well...I don't know if these are appropriate to the topic but I felt the theme needed some of these:

Apologies if these are inappropriate.

Love it! Thanks!
