  1. Hi,

    Thank you for your review on this tool.

    The program has been upgraded to a new version, with the option to choose between black- and whitelist and an easy to select database checklists.
    Besides that, it now also has a update notification system.
    Kind regards,

  2. Hey – this is pretty cool. Do you know if it supports a command-line interface? I ask because my company (http://www.unitrends.com) does heterogeneous backup and has a pretty flexible command line interface for a bunch of operating systems – so I'm wondering if it's possible to use their appliance with this tool.
