    The build you see here (20110524) has been replaced by 20120112. The latest release does not recognize CD/DVD drives as a destination. The option is ghosted. According to users of prior Revs this is a new bug with the latest release. It is still great for backing up to USB, NAS or across the LAN but... Until they fix this bug it gets 2 stars.

    Works OK on XP x86. Very poor performance and random job failures on Vista X86, x64, and Win 7 x86. GFI claims they know and are working to fix, but its been a problem since at least July, 2009 when I began testing. Ho hum!

    You need to register to get this download which is annoying but the result:
    o Professional onsite demonstration of features.
    o Software installation scary quote 'RIGHT TO "CALL HOME": OPT-OUT The Product will automatically contact GFI Software if and when any of the following events occur: (i) the Product is successfully installed by you; (ii)you fail to install the Product successfully; (iii)the Product has been successfully configured; ' etc
    o Verdict is not out on this yet. Here is a url you can use to get around the download registration:
