Bought and used this software (vers 4.0) to recover a drive in 2009- worked fine- then they updated it to vers 4.1 this year and my former version (4.0) will NO LONGER accept my serial number! I don't need the upgrade so why is the older version no longer working??? So then I tried to upgrade- no response from the seller- in retrospect I wished I had gone with a different software package from the get go in 2009. (PS We need a new category called Tech Support so I could give them zero stars...)

About 2 weeks after this comment I was contacted by tech support who worked with me to rectify this situation. I am not sure why my original password was invalid but they eventually provided me with a new password which successfully activated the newer version of this software and I am now able to successfully recover accidentally trashed files. Thanks for renewing my faith in your product!

It took me several YEARS to finally get comfortable with the "new" imovie- I loved imovie 6- but this latest version finally did it. I literally forced myself to give up comparing it to imovie 6 and sit down and learn to use it and now I must say it is really quite easy and it is hella fast on my MBP and attains warp speed on the imac. Now if they would just allow 3rd party transitions and effects all would again be brilliant in movie making land.

I have used Synk to back up my file servers since version 3. I have found it fast, extremely reliable, and easy to set up and upgrade. It is a "fire and forget" app that does my periodic and nightly backups and one I prefer to Time Machine (probably because all my data lives on my servers rather than my hard drives).

Most iPod updates only include a new version for one or two of the various units- so read before using to see if it is necessary for your unit. I have never had problems with iPod updates and this worked fine on my shuffle (the only unit that needed this update).

On a side note- a danger of bringing in more windoze people to the fairer platform is increasing the fringe element whose purpose in life is to degrade each new piece of hardware and software because they are basically technophobes. Having been a computer teacher and user since 1979, I am continually amazed at the ease of use and excellent capabilities Apple technology has brought to my world.
