I'm sorry I read the wrong meaning in that all the way around.

Hiyya Iown I think I got this one from Miles some time ago and use it all the time.

I actually used to use it for a backup by having two 1TB drives in the one machine and once in a while I just cloned the one in use to the second one then use it until I reclone back to the other that way you have a ready made new drive on tap albeit short of a few updates perhaps if the drive you are using goes bung.

Doing it this way I (used to) get backed up entirely as I go along, and it only takes about 35-40mins to do that.

You can also clone as many other drives outside the case as you like I have a couple I keep for spare again in case the machine goes bad on me. (You need the gadget for doing that via the USB socket)

However I do use an SSD now and have to back up to the 1TB but for anyone using the two drives like I did it's a great and simple app to use. One problem is though is that you can only clone from the same size to same size or from smaller to larger and NOT larger to smaller.

I did enquire at EaseUS as to whether the paid for version is different but it isn't - just comes with a few more features, and you can only use it on one machine. But they have some other good apps at EaseUS as well

I'm temporarily using a laptop with a lousy Celeron processor, so basically it's not really capable of much... and Corel X4 was far too heavy for it to load correctly, so I went on a trawl for some image editing freeware and found this...

PhotoFiltre Studio

It's free for non-commercial use, has a Paint Shop Pro lookalike GUI, loads and loads of functions, and a host of plugins which you can add at the url below.

PhotoFiltre Studio Plugins

Loads quickly, works beautifully too. Various versions in many languages

Which version do you use Qdos? I see one for EURO 29. Also it claims to be shareware, requiring payment after 30 days.
