dotTech reviewed Genie Timeline Home (v2.1)  back in 2010. The final verdict in that review summarizes how I feel about this program:
Although there are still a few key features I would like to see added to Genie Timeline Home Edition, Genie Timeline Home Edition is an excellent backup software; the focus on the user experience is especially exemplary. I give Genie Timeline Home Edition a thumbs up – it is a very good product.
