My network comprises a Mac Pro, my wife's Macbook and a Mac Mini which I use as a small server for e-mail etc. all networked through an Airport Extreme base station. I also have an external Firewire drive attached to the mini for backing up all three machines.

I have tried many of the reasonably priced backup solutions on offer and have found cause for dissatisfaction with many of them. A week or so ago I came across QRecall, downloaded and installed the latest release version and within 24 hours I had bought a license.

I had a few questions which, if the answer was not to be found in the support forums, were quickly, patiently and comprehensively answered by the developer. At James' suggestion I updated to the latest beta and the performance difference was incredible.

QRecall has to be the most versatile backup solution for the home/soho user at a bargain price.

I run automatic periodic backups on all three machines then periodically overnight when the Macbook and Mac Pro are unlikely to be in use, the Mac Mini runs merge, compact and verify actions on all three backups. The choices available on when and how to backup are phenomenal and QRecall can be fine tuned to your precise requirements.

I still use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to make a weekly bootable backup but everything else is now handled by QRecall.

I am one very satisfied customer.

This is a nice piece of software and does exactly what it claims to do. I bought it just before Snow Leopard was released but unfortunately SL broke RAIDMonitor 3.

An update was quickly released but I still had some issues with it so I contacted the developer and I can only say that his response to my problems has been quite outstanding. With some cooperation between us and, I am sure, a lot of hard work by Aaron, the issues have been resolved.

This is support at it's best and makes the shareware fee worth every penny.
