There is something about backup software which brings out the very worst in people. Everyone knows about the jumbo jet grave yard in the Californian desert, well, it’s almost as if retired / failed software developers all end up in the same equally desolate and inhospitable place too – in backup software. Most of the packages we have come across have confusing & unintuitive UIs, an almost mystical ability to randomly stop working without telling you, and when there are issues, getting support is not just going to ruin your morning, but possibly involve an entire week in having to go on a wild log file hunt.
We don’t have time for any of that – we have serious work to do.
