Is this product for real?
I've been evaluating backup software for our company for four months now. BFW is the best product that I've come across so far. Compression, encryption, bare-metal restore, runs as a service enabling after hour backups, choose file to or not to back up... and on and on.
More folks should take a serious look at this product. Why Veritas and CA can't employ all of these components and do so in an 8MB program is beyond me. This is a simple, young, well thought out program that definately gets my vote.
Keep it up Lockstep!
