I just bought a new Iomega external drive, and I'm trying to figure out which software to use to manage backups. I am not looking for software recommendations. These are already available in other SU questions.
I am simply asking: does product XYZ lock you in, yes or no?
Examples of the answers I am looking for:
- Norton 360: yes. You cannot access Norton 360 backups with other software.
xcopydoes not modify the file contents in any way.
One product per answer please.
EDIT: Some additional info:
- I am using Windows XP Professional (SP3).
- I am particularly interested in: Iomega QuikProtect (included with the HDD), EMC Retrospect (also included), SyncBack (seems highly recommended), Cobian (same). But answers about any Windows product are welcome.
