Why I Didn’t Buy Genie Backup Manager
By Nicholas Solter on Apr 20, 2007
In my ongoing quest to find a decent backup solution for Windows XP, I evaluated Genie Backup Manager Home 7.0. Although it worked better than Norton Save and Restore, it had one major problem: speed. I expected the initial backup of my 23,000 files or so to be slow, and it was (about 8 hours). But I didn’t expect the incremental backups to be so excruciatingly slow. The first incremental backup, one day after the initial backup, ran for seven hours before I gave up and aborted it. And this run was to backup only the six files that had been modified since the initial backup! On to the next option: NTI Shadow.
