A feature that does not work for me is the [Make sure you have it hand with FlashPak.K Restore to burn tour settings to CDR.] But, I just noticed it says "FlashPaK.K" which is news to me so I better go back and read to see what that is about...... Warning.... Just be aware that to use FlashPAK, the software formats the USB device. It is then no longer able to be read by a PC such that you are no longer able to transfer files between a PC and a Mac. If that is one of your needs of the USB device, I'd suggest buying a cheap small USB device for use with FlashPAK only. Be very careful with this product. I purchased FlashPAK to save off my sister's personal settings on her PB. Then recovered the data I could from the failing hard disk. Installed fresh copies of software on the replacement hard disk. I probably went about this incorrectly. I installed FlashPAK on my working PB to see how the software functioned. I saved my personal settings to the USB device. I then inserted the USB device into the other PB with the defective but still working hard disk. Copied over the FlashPAK installer. Installed FlashPAK and was able to copy off the personal settings from the defective hard disk. I then wanted to copy over some files from my PB to the PB after I put a new drive into my sister's PB and had installed a fresh copy of OS X. I inserted the USB device into my PB. To my horror, I had not de-selected the setting in the control panel pane for FlashPAK which tells FlashPAK to copy the personal settings from the USB device, to the (my) PB. Zap..... My user account, now has the settings from my sister's user account. The result is now that Mail seems to be working on finding each email, though very slowly. iTunes data is empty. The Movie folder is empty. And the worst.....the iPhoto folder is now empty or what I should say, it appears that iPhoto and iTunes, unable to see the original folders, have created new, default empty folders...... I've lost of course, the data since my last back up.
