  • Is this made by the same people who made the Gmail backup? But once again, a handy backup tool is always needed.

    I am having major issues with Windows Live Mail. I have backed them up to a second copy, but the Dell Harddive crashed again,within a wek. When trying to resore the emails etc from my seond copy backup, the files restord, but the folders and subfolders were all over the place, and not in the original formt that I had. Example, I had folders an then subfoders under folders. thesub folders restored, but showed as individual folders, and to make matters worse….the folder names were corupted.

    This is not the sort of thing Iwan from Windows 7, (64 bit).

    This all takes a couple of dys to sort out, and a waste of my time.

    Any solutions? Microsoft no wnating to assist!!

    Is this utility really completely free? I don't want to download something that will charge me after a few days.
