The uploader is Jay Vrijenhoek, one of the security staff at Intego, the company that wrote this and the other two Intego packages uploaded (NetBarrier and VirusBarrier) with the company's permission - consider them officially free, officially unsupported gifts Smile

Thank you very much, Dogcow

BTW, I removed you as author on the page as I expect you did not write the software, and even if you did I would expect the author to use their real name on a product that they wrote

It's a good piece of Backup software, but alongside Retrospect, for SSW 7, 8 and 9, Norton Backup, included as part of Norton Utilities v2 (but not in later suites) was first rate. Like this it's not suited for backing up a network of computers, but for personal backup it was unbeatable.

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' with 'SSW 7' - IIGS User
