  3. I'm having a similar problem

    New PC, new Win 7 Pro x64, new Outlook 2007. I use Mailwasher Pro to "wash" my e-mail from my e-mail server. I don't keep a copy of my e-mails on the server, they all get pulled into Outlook after...

    Hmmm, I never experienced that with GoBack. It always happily installed with every version on my SCSI drives, nary a hiccup. I got my reply from Magicure -- no dice, no support for RAID-controlled...

    I should have added something the original poster may not (or may) have considered. If you choose the right media your backups may last longer than you, but the same is not true of backup/restore...

    I looked at the Comodo TrustConnect info but it is not detailed enough for me.

    And that was?

    Wow, that's a lot of AV programs that you've written off as unacceptable, so I'm curious as to what you DID decide was the "one for you."
