    why you lie to us and say that you will release this version VERY SOON? just remove free version and say that we should purchase standard ver. В  its not good to lie to your clients.

    Hi Inbox Undelete! Thanks for the feedback. Actually, the arrival of the up-to-date Handy Backup Free is all about priorities and what users request. Right this moment we are working on disk imaging features (so users get handy functionality to back up their Windows 7 before migrating to Windows 8), improved controls for remote backup of multiple computers at a time, and new interface. If you think that a free version is more important than those ones, please let us know, and your voice shall be heard.
