great work guys!

Hello guys,

This new release brings a small new application, we call Comodo Backup Wizard, that presents all important data on your computer in a friendly, easy to understand way.
In recent surveys, when asked what they will save from their house in case of a fire, most people answered that after their relatives and pets they would save their picture collection.

We realize we are not only protecting bytes and files but we are protecting your vacation and family pictures and videos, your hard work and music collection, data that is important to you, and so we are improving our application to find and understand this data and make it easy for you to save it.

There are many features and improvements on our TODO list that will be coming in future releases.
Please keep in mind that this application is on it’s first release and we are working ■■■■■■■ improving it but we need your feedback to make it even better.

So please try it and let us know what you think about it.

Thank you.

I have just only one question: why CB installator downloads COS? CB is able to manage your online backup and there is no need to download extra software?

Is there any significance for the padlock on the CBU desktop icon and some of the backed up folders?

Here is the answer.
It means that the file has the SYSTEM user as it’s owner.
