From my oppinion the software looks kinda old and a little hard to use for many people.

I suggest you to use another easier to use software like  to backup / restore the computer or any files you want to backup.

Their software is free and also the online backup service is also free up to 3gb of space ( if you need higher pack of storage they have some at good prices ) , also the software is easy to use than most of other softwares that do that.

Now DMailer might be good, but now we're talking backup software for everything else but Linux. If you're on a Linux box then the software mentioned in the article is a very good solution. //Mike
