NovaBackup Server Edition
I agree. It's a terrible product. Version 6.5 was "the bomb". Version 7 and subsequent releases were not as good. The service doesn't start or the application hangs after getting to 99% of backup. My advice is to stick with Ntbackup or buy something else.
Nova Backup 7.1
Terible product! Bought the latest version - would never fully backup to a DVD. Lots of weird behavior and error messages. Called tech support and was told to download an older version that didn't have as many issues. Installed the older version and found the scheduler was working. Called tech support again and was told the scheduler doesn't work in this build of 7.1, which is the only version that can back up to a DVD. ARG!! Got my money back fortunately...
Whenever I try to backup to DVD on local network, both computers hang, I have yet to successfully have it backup to DVD, it often closes a DVD with only a partial backup, it often shows verification errors in the log for no apparent reason so I have no way of knowing if the files were successfully backed up. Tech support says this is because the files are open, not true. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
