What replacements did you find and why did they seem worse?
What special requirements do you have, if any?
ignatzatsonic, Thanks for reply and i will look up your list.
The old ordinary Genie8 was almost perfect, it let me pick the few
things i need to BU. Better yet i could see them in clear, most reassuring. Suddenly it stopped copying to optical disks, only EHD. The optical disks and EHD could be stored well away from the computer, in case of theft or fire. It was thus fast, and secure.
The new one is set to BU absolutely everything and first time took all night, so slow. I can stop it saving rubbish like emails (which i can print if needed). It is not in clear so i cannot check it is right. nor is the time saved significant.
Result, chalk and cheese, really serious time/space wasting, and no way to get the BU to a safe place.
