Why do you use the two in combination? It's also recommended in the review, but I don't see why this is.
I just tested this. I created a backup partition for my data, mounted it, deleted some of it, and then unmounted it. Creating the full partition took 38 mins, while genie backup took >2hrs for the initial backup, and a few mins for incremental backups.
Assuming that incremental backups in acronis suck (which they do: 2gb per day is ridiculous), just recreating the entire partition fresh everynight is doable. and I find it faster and easier to find a file after mounting an acronis partition than to use the catalog in genie backup... so one application could be enough.
Unless you want to have several days of history (which is not feasible in acronis, since incremental backups are 2gb and entire partitions bigger). hmm
I see your point.
Yep, you need both.
I'm just bitter because genie is buggy and making a big mess of my HD. I wish I could drop it. I tested backup4all, but it seems to have a memory leek (oh boy, can you trust these backup applications?), or at least it consumes 400mb of ram and crashes everytime I open it...
