Hey guys,

Congratulations on the 10th anniversary! zridling, I remember enjoy reading your posts/reviews because they always came with good and enjoyable photos lol  :up:

Anyway, I have moved on to OS X as my main system (due to work) so I don't read software reviews and look for discounts very often anymore.  At work, I still do some cross platform work, but mainly develop and maintain some Mac/iOS apps so objective-c (and lately Swift) is my main gig.  Even though I develop on OS X, I still use FARR, xplorer2 and website-watcher (which I got a discount from here) everyday on a separate machine.  Such essential tools...

Good old times here Jesse, and just the other day I found a "super duper programmer" in my t-shirt collection which I think I got it from here (along with a DC mug)!!!  Way coooool!  :-*

Hi Josh, it should already have Win7 support (have not tried Win8 though).  It comes with an helper (ServiceCtrlHelper.exe) that is capable of elevating perms to start/stop a particular service.  Please do let me know if it doesn't work for you.

Backup Guide / Re: Well I'd like to have shared some ....

You have convinced me as well!!! Just read through the feature list on the website, both the "BackInTime" and "ReverseDelta" sound quite appealing to me.  I am going to have to try this out.

I am currently using Backup4all and have been evaluatinng SFFS, and there are a few things that I wish Backup4all was capable of doing.

Can Oops!Backup do the following?

1.  Is the "BackInTime" feature capable to keeping track of changes that happened inside a particular folder?  For example, I would like to take a snapshot (exact mirror) of a certain directory whenever a backup task is run (be it a scheduled or manual job).  However, upon subsequent snapshots, I expect the application to backup the binary delta of ONLY the files that have changed after the initial snapshot (so as to save space).  I don't want it to re-save the whole directory when only 1 or 2 files out of 1000 have changes in them.  Upon restore, I want it to be able to handle relocation and deletion (very important).  Upon restore, I would like it to restore back to the EXACT state of the folder on a given date, handling creation, move, and deletions as needed.

2.  Does this ReverseDelta feature apply to restore as well?  For example, when only a very hundred bytes  out of a 10GB file has changed after a backup, can the restore be smart enough to just restore (add/overwrite/replace/remove etc) the bytes/blocks that have changed (as opposed to a full dumb copy back from the backup)?  This would be killer.


Hey good find xtabber.  Any idea if there is any discount for the combo edition (both Mac & Win)?  Normally the combo is priced at $69.95.  TIA.

Thanks!  Just downloaded a copy :)

Seems a little bit on the heavy side though, the 64-bit version of the installer is 48.7MB.
