"Horrible Software"0.5 starson by fnottle
Pros: Only Packaging
Cons: Too much to list
Summary: Have spent days trying to get this work have finally given up and will return the thing to get my money back.
Setup: Dell 4300 Desktop & HP Laptop, Sony 530UL External DVD writer via USB
First problem: It wouldn't completely finish writing to the DVD and would eject it. After going through 9 Fuji DVD+Rs for the laptop hard-drive (30 GB in size), it finally crapped out with a message "Error E7D1001F, Unable to write to file"
Next Problem: Should have given it up now, but being a sucker for punishment, tried to backup the Dell. This time around, moved to Sony DVD-R discs, hoping that I'll have better luck. Well, the damn thing wouldn't even start the backup, kept ejecting the tray everytime I pushed it in with a new DVD-R disc.
Tried many combinations of the options (standard vs high compression), installing and NOT doing a live update.....had different outcomes each time, but none succesful.
Such a shame, Norton 2003 was great, except for the DOS bootup. I didn't even bother with a trial version assuming that this'll be a bigger/better version, but boy was I wrong. Last time with any Symantec/Norton product..
Oh yeah the email support sucks, absolutely unhelpful
