The program also has all the features average users need: full, incremental, and differential backup, files comparison and versatile scheduling.
What?s missing are tape drive support (not an issue for most users who back up to hard drive or CD/DVD) and true disaster recovery--there?s no way to create a boot disc. However, Power Backup does create self-restorable backups. Simply click on your latest backup (it?ll have an .exe extension) and up pops a little dialog asking if you want to restore the files to their original location or a new one. Since reinstalling Vista simply isn?t that painful, disaster recovery isn?t the issue it once was, though it would behoove Cyberlink to look into a boot disc for version 3.
Note: you can also find a 30-day trial version of this software at the developer's site. --Jon L. Jacobi
