    @Fred Smith:

    Three tips –

    I always run it from the bootable CD

    I found it very reliable, except in my early days when I was stuffing around with the images. If I follow these rules, I have no problems –
    – Create the desired folders in the drive first
    – Once you have created an image, do not rename it, or it’s folder path, and do not copy or move the images.
    – Try to mimic the hardware setup for creating and restoring images (I may be being an ‘old woman’ with that one)

    The version I use was May 2009.
    I recently tried the latest version, and it hesitated and spluttered locating the connected drives. That scared me, and I went back to May 2009.
    My hardware is 6 years old. Perhaps they are not testing for older hardware.
    Keep one eye on it when booting up, to see if it ‘splutters’ during hardware recognition.
    If it does, yell out and I will get the May 2009 version to you.

    @RobCr: Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll take a look at Seagate DiscWizard right now.

    @Fred Smith:

    If you browse Ashraf’s web site, you will find me preaching to anyone who will listen, to use Seagate DiscWizard, to image your hard drive.

    Whenever I have a dilemma, such as the one you raised, I take that as a reminder from the heavens to do my image that night (whilst having a meal).
    Then I experiment with the program in question.
    EG Allow it to do an update, and see if it is still fully functional.
    If it is not, you can then Restore your image, and BOB’s your nagging UNCLE in oz.

    This was still available as at 20th Sept ’10. Downloaded & install & registered full version 4.12 just fine. However it offered to update to v4.15. If I do that does anyone know if it will still be the full free version or just a trial version?

    Which version of the internet were you using in 1942, Rob? 

  • CharlieSkywalker

    @David C. Metcalfe:

    Thank you David, for giving me the URL.
    I have used it and got my Unlock Code.
    You are very kind, thanks again.

  • David C. Metcalfe

    If you load the URL as follows you can register.
    But I am still waiting for my unlock code.

  • CharlieSkywalker


    I have just downloaded and installed the program. But when I click on Register for Free button it cannot open the registration page. I tried many times but always get:
    Internal Server Error – The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request….etc”.
    So, I can’t fill in the registration form to get the Unlock Code.
    Can someone post here the URL of the registration page so I can get there directly, and not via Register for Free button. 
    Or someone has some other ideas how to solve this problem.

    Please, help. I am waiting…

    It may be a good program but too many hoops to jump through for me.

    I have just posted a comment on Ashraf’s review of the GOTD
    Tabbles Home
    You probably will be thankful, that I have clarified for everyone that ‘rob c’ and ‘RobCr’ are two different people.

    @rob c:
    I don’t think you should be allowed to use rob c
    as people will not know which of us is posting.
    I think the one of use who registered the name first, on the planet Earth, should be the only one that can use it.
    Mine was registered in January 1942


    I am using the program and is very useful.  A new version No. 5 is already arrived and they have special discount offer of 20% till July 11.

  • rob c

    just wanted to say thanks for this software. i read your reviews on GOTD for a solid review. you missed a lot of good ones while on holidays, and a lot of people were blind with out your it was funny. anyway thanks again i’ve been hunting for a good back up program.

    I wonder if they really know what they’re naming it: oxter means armpit in Ireland too. Maybe they think that if you’re from the British Isles you’ll feel safer with your files stored in your armpit? (Sorry to be flippant, it’s likely to be a great product.)

  • James Kelly

    Hi All,
    this is meant don’t to sound demeaning in any way but in Scots “ocster” means armpit!
    I’m not calling the software the pits as I haven’t tried it. Just thought it was funny in my warped sense of humour.
