What is the purpose of this utility? I don't see the problem it is designed to solve, but understand there must be one!

MacUpdate says this was updated to 6.6.2r3 today (06 Dec 2010) but it is the same number as the version I already have installed several months ago. Also, when I download the 'latest version' from the LaserSoft web site it is dated 02 Nov 2010. Does anyone know what's going on?

Surprised that there are no recent reviews, so I wanted to say I've been happily using this for the last four years to keep offsite backups of my most important files. AASync connects and syncs/backups automatically via SFTP to a backup folder on my ISP. While I have been using this program, the developer has been responsive and has regularly improved the program.

I start a backup every night at 11:58 PM and by 7:00 AM the next day it has usually uploaded all the new files I have made in the course of the previous day. The interface looks simple, but I know that much work has gone into the code to make it work with different servers.

I do suggest you rename your Mac's files to be 'Internet friendly' names, or at least unix/linux friendly, for example, "Make Names Web Friendly" is what I use on legacy files, but mostly I try to name new files in a Web-friendly way when I create them:

I use this alongside Time Machine and SuperDuper!

If you have >100GB of files, be prepared to run this for a month to make your first backup over a typicaly DSL link. You can abort the overnight backup when you start work in the morning, then let it start again by schedule at midnight.

Just another report of good customer service from MichaelG at SRS Labs: I needed help with an upgrade and he emailed me the solution straight back.

As noted elsewhere, to use this with an Airport Express, I had to use Airfoil to capture the output from iTunes. After that, sounds great!

I bought iWow in the original offer and accidentally installed it on too many machines (that is, on machines that I no longer own or no longer use, or don't use with iTunes). I could never get the old machines to unregister themselves, so I lost the ability to use the product before I settled on my current iTunes machine.

Will the upgrade give me a new lease of life, or will I only be able to upgrade it on the machines I no longer want it on?

When Safari downloaded this, it had a '.bz2' extension, even though the file was actually the dmg itself! I just deleted '.bz2' from the name of the file and then it opened and mounted. Installation of the application itself by drag and drop was OK to my windows-formated USB drive (FAT 32) and it all works same as desktop version after transferring preferences, including OTR encryption. Great!

If this extra '.bz2' extension happens to you *do not* double click the file while it is still named with the '.bz2' extension--that will just launch a process that actually messes up the dmg and renders it unreadable by the system.
[Version 1.2.1r4.0]
