    I echo Dan’s appreciation, Ashraf. What can we do to help you get the advanced access you need? You are the best reviewer I’ve ever seen — deep-pocket$ magazines should be paying you big buck for the quality you produce. Anyway, thanks for the great past reviews and any future ones you can manage without knocking yourself out. With Kind Regards, v

    @Dan Laemont: I wish I would say I am “back” but I just don’t have the time to stay up all night writing reviews anymore. If GOTD would allow me access to the software say 24 hours in advance I could publish a review during the day and be done with it.

    @Bill Gates II: I have no experience or knowledge of Win7 backup so I can’t say.
