A new one from 321 Studio’s, is it any good, well In my opinion not so far and here’s why:
Installation got off on the wrong foot as you can see it added a scsi device here:
but forgot to put the virtual device:
Now 321 Studio’s user manuals have alway been slim to say the least so I called tech support and asked about the virtual drive (won’t say who supplied it). She said yes one was supposed to be listed or upto 0 or 4 if I choose well as you can see it’s not there and Tech support was of no help what so ever, they had no idea how it was supposed to work.
as you can see here, this must be for straight unprotected disks, there are no settings what so ever, just plug it and go.
Now expert mode:
as you can see here a few more settings, and although this software says you can back-up any protection again as seen in the next picture it simply cannot do as it claims
DPM measurement cannot be written to the physical disk only the image, so what good would this be to write securom?
so I went ahead and used Unreal 2 for my first trial
As you can see this software is no speed demon, it took over 21 minutes to do DPM as seen here:
and this was the end result when I tried to mount the image I just created, and you’ll also notice it took over 25 minutes to complete and image that didn’t work.
this is just a brief overview so far, I will do some more testing in the next day or two, but do not waste your money on this yet, I did and I will wait for the call on how to fix these errors, IMO wait a while to pay 60.00 dollars for it According to their website this is all anyone needs to make a perfect back-up:
PentiumÂ® III 500MHz
64MB of RAM
800MB of Free Hard Disk Space
CD or DVD ROM drive
CD-R(W) or DVD burner which supports Disc-at-Once mode.
We all know it’s hardware dependant but you see no mention of it here or on their website, the only thing their website says it won’t do id dvd games.
