There must be workarounds, surely?
I've installed it on Windows 7 and from the desktop, if ye right click and 'run as administrator' then you can get into the program, configure a continuous backup and successfully run the first full one.
Then when the machine restarts, it's happily running in the background, creating a log file, but then ignoring the duties of updating the NAS with new files and changes to previous.
Close but no cigar... but leaves me wondering if it can be fixed (process or file permissions maybe?) or whether trying would be an effort wasted. After all Netgear (and incidently WD and Seagate) seem to have gone in the direction of Mameo Backup for this job.
Then again, it seems NTI are offering an upgrade to version 4 for 20 USD.
Me, I'm going to give that QuickShadow Backup software a go. (http://quicklytech.com])
