    By pure coincidence I just stumbled on the "PC Backup RX" thread over at HorizonDataSys. Being a curious person I downloaded and installed it, and to my big surprise this is Keriver.

    The Keriver product line has not been updated since the end of 2012, and this looks like the company has run out of resources and sold their code to HDS. Can anyone confirm this?


    Cheers

    I thought this was just an old version of RRX prior too all the modifications for Windows 8.1? HDs offers branding programs so it may be an HDS product with the Keriver brand.

    Manolito, I played with that product when it was offered for testing and was pretty disappointed at its performance. BUT, I had never used the Keriver product before so had no reference. It's a simple DIFFERENTIAL ONLY imager with a decent scheduler that works fairly well, and HDS intention was to offer it ONLY as a Freebie for simple home imaging, no advanced product version... some product "goodwill" if you will.

    Methinks they may have picked it up out of Keriver's boneyard...

    HDS' Drive Cloner Rx has always been a rebranded version of Keriver Image and another HDS product was a rebranded Keriver 1-Click Restore, so this shouldn't really be a big surprise!
