$275 to upgrade from v9 to v10, just to get Lion support? That's criminal

I would be interested in trying this, but I have tried other apps that do this kind of thing (such as Devon Think), and they all crash when Entourage's database gets to be too large - some of my users are over 10 GB, and that's after compacting them. I would like to know if this app can handle that without having to pay for it first.

I'm running version 6.1.3, Maxum is asking $149 to upgrade to version 6.2 - a less than one point revision. Makes no sense.

Totally addictive!

Navigation is a little awkward - you can swipe to move, but the navigation buttons are too large on screen and get in the way. If this had tilt control of motion it would be perfect.

I bought FieMagnet and downloaded the "uploader" program (which is supposedly what's listed here?). It all works fine on iPhone 3.0.1. The latest uploader program shows version 1.2, this is listed as version 1.3.1, not sure why the discrepancy.

As of version 8.0736, still does not work at all on my Mac Pro running OS X 10.5.6 (Leopard) server. I used the "wizard" to start an immediate backup either to File or to Disk. It appears as though something's "happening" (a yellowish "blob" "swings" into the "activities" bar from somewhere unknown - very Microsoftish), but no script actually runs. Also, the date of the "scheduled" backup for that run is 1969 - huh? Tried to schedule it on the server itself, as well as from another computer running OS X 10.5.6 Leopard (not server), same thing, nothing happens.

I was able to get something to happen on my machine which is not running server software, but after it starts the script it immediately crashes. In addition, the interface is dreadful. For example, say you are setting up a File type backup and are prompted as to where to store the catalogue. You want to make a new folder? Go ahead, but you have to make it, then close out of that dialogue and go back to actually use that folder. The disclosure triangles to the left of folders are sometimes invisible, and the interface does not look anything like Mac OS X. For example, if you want to get to your desktop folder, you have to navigate to /Users//Desktop. Ugh!

I called tech support and was told that I get one "free" service call. They gave me a ticket number and then put me on hold for 45 minutes. I gave up after that.

Probably the worst "release" version I have ever seen, ever ever evr.

Seems like they removed "sync", or am I wrong?
[Version 3.0b4]

Installed the update but it still shows "version 3.0.0", not sure if this really is a newer version or not.
[Version 3.0.1]

I find this software to be quite usefull. Especially usefl is the abilty to use a MySQL database server to store info, which makes it accessible to an entire network. It is also fairly easy to export this data from MySQL and use it in other ways.

Having said that, there is one big limitation that I wish they would address. Mediaboard will not scan media files without a file extension such as .mov or .dv. In other words, it will not look at standard Mac OS X file types and creator codes. When I emailed the authors about this, I never even got a reply.
[Version 1.4.5]
