For the last year I have been using a LaCie rugged XL 2TB extn HDD (eSATA 3GB) for my backups. The software that shipped with this: Genie Backup Assistant is now (1) discontinued (b) not compatible with Win 7 64 bit.
LaCie tell me that Genie Backup Manager Professional - LaCie - 8 should be Okay to (1) work with Win 7 64 bit; and (2) read the files I made with GBA.
The LaCie GBMP download will cost me around USD 60.00 from their site, or about Â£40.00 from that well-known on-line supplier whose name begins with an A. A download is also available via CNET Download.com (no prices quoted on their site). I've never used CNET. Can anyone give me the SP on them?
Also... I currently have on order Win 7 64 bit Home Premium. Would upgrading to Ultimate be a better option? This would give me XP compatibility, so presumably GBA would work okay.
