    email from Ease US-- but is this legit?

    I use Ease US for backups. Today I got the email below. Before I click on anything, I am wondering if it is legit. In particular, what is this Central Management Console worth $99?:

    compiler,
    Hello... I have received the same offer ... Seems after a quick look that it's a "Trial" download... maybe wrong...It could be that they send you a "Key" after the completing survey ? Anyway.... I'm not in need of whatever it is they are selling at this point... Their "EaseUS Todo" backup is Free and have used it and seems like a fine program.. Regards Fred

    Also...

    I'd still like to find out what that other "free" program does.

    If it is just a free trial, then forget it.

    Maybe someone else can chime in.

    The HERE download link you posted gives full details of their Central Managment Console, but it's really for network administrators.

    Bruce:
    Thanks. I had not clicked on the HERE part because I was suspicious of the email. In fact, when I copied/pasted my email here I did not know that the link also pastes!

    So, they are not giving anything away as it is completely useless for 99% of their users!
