Fiona, Torquay

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Incremental backups done, rather than the whole file each time!
Bad points:
Had to switch to the Windows 7 scheduler as the internal one did not always show what had backed up. Its important to see this clearly. It sometimes said it had failed but in fact it had backed up using its own software
