Perry Mowbray:
 :Thmbsup:

Is it really going to be called "   Backup Verification Utility"??

Not something shorter? Catchier? Acronym'd?  :-\

Is it just a checker, or will it also either back up or run a backup application??

Stoic Joker:
Hm... Backup verification with Emailed report... Portable is nice, but if it could be run as a service (install/uninstall from commandline) that would be handy.

justice:
Not like it's going to be called that :P not spent any braincells on the name yet, so welcome any comments. I guess even the information above the disclaimer was subject to change then ;) FilesCorrect NANY NANY Edition?

tomos:
great idea!
Re Name, how about:

"Double Proof"

- not sure why 'Double' (I guess cause you're checking the backups) but I like the sound of it anyways... but maybe too much like whiskey though?
