Congratulations team!!! (:CLP) (:CLP) (:CLP) (:CLP) (:CLP)

still no rescue cd?

Sorry; not worth even the beta test for the future of where this program is headed.

Promised a bootable cd and instead you give us a PRO version. I’d rather suck my thumb and play with a rescue PE than pay for a product where similar items exist on the internet for free.

Are network drives supported with the synced backup feature in this version? I did not see it on the list of additions above.
