Indeed ... I agree with what you say, bug removals etc, but since the last update of CloneCD protections have moved on and the only ones that have kept up with trends are 120% and BW with updates to counteract new protections and allow you to make a personal backup as well as squashing any bugs in their software. On that note I would like to commend VSO and their BW Suite as as soon as they are made aware of a problem/bug they jump right on it and fix it (thnx Lapinou/Portmac etc)
Not entirely sure where Starforce 3 comes into the argument as I didnt mention it, however no backup utils are currently are able to copy such protection? (maybe BW with plextor something or other? .. Plextool?) but seeing as I dont have such equipment I cannot say.
Again I never said that one has better support over the other, rather say that 120% and BW (especially BW) have been consistant with keeping up with trends and make the subscription/purchase price seem worthwhile.
I don't want to be drawn into an argument with regard to this, but as I see it CloneCD and its subscribers have paid good money to purchase the software. Through no fault of their own, development was ceased, and now SlySoft have taken over development. In order to appease older users surely they should allow an update to current versions (when available) for all existing known subscribers? As a positive note to that it would also encourage new subscribers, as they would see that SlySoft are trying to maintain a known userbase who are more than capable of saying if the new (updated?) product is better or worse than what was available before.
Just my two cents worth ...
As an Addendum, what are Olli's views on this?
