  1. Yep, lots of information. But no useful instruction. Here is what is listed in this document on setting up an automated backup; Each synchronized pair of folders is memorized in a Job. Job also has a set of options that control various aspects of synchronization process. Each Job has a name that is requested when Job is created. When you start GoodSync for the first time, initial nameless job is created for you automatically. GoodSync memorizes list of Jobs and all their parameters per computer. Jobs can be created, deleted, renamed, analyzed and synced. All job commands are in the Job m
  2. I admit I did consider a number of times throwing in the towel. I persisted 1) because I could not find any other product which did what I wanted to do, (automatically backup my wifes laptop to the external hard drive on my desktop) and 2) after awhile it became a challenge to make the damn thing work. I did write to the head honcho at Siber telling him of the odessey, and my analysis of the roots of the problem.(Inadequate and/or absent documentation and help files, locking in to a single help desk person, who in my case clearly did not speak English as her first language.). He thanked
  3. I periodically encounter issues with software vendors, or problems with the function of programs. It has always seemed to me that awareness of my experiences may assist others when they are looking at possible purchase. But I have never found any forum where these experiences can be posted. Would a category in this site fill that need? (My current issue was a painful odessey with GoodSync, a heavily promoted product from the makers of RoboForm. It took me a total of 54 asynchronous communications over a period of 3 weeks with a dysfunctional help desk to get the damn thing set up. If
  4. Got it! Thanks very much. And that fixed the problem too.
  5. I am sorry. I am only marginally adept at roaming around in computers. Your kind direction to go to Programs and Services will undoubtedly work in XP. But Mr. Gates has changed his interface (again). I am running Win-7 and I cannot find the equivalent section in his new Control Panel.
  6. Closely related, but a little different: PC Pitstop "optimised" my remote VPN service (Aventail) and now I cannot use it at all. (It will not load from the "program" menu (says "The Aventail VPN Manager Servicer is not currently running", so cannot load.)) Looking in msconfig the tickbox opposite Aventail is still ticked, so it doesn't look as though clicking here will get my service back. Is there any way to retrieve my lost service short of reinstalling the whole thing? (And I am not sure I am able to do this without involving the IT department of the computer I am connecting to.)
