    For those who have been using the beta can you please post your thoughts on how it as done. What is working, what needs fixing, your likes and dislikes. Thank you.

    Mine has been with Vista. Defrags take forever. It is almost like it is undefragging.

    I found that it pretty much slowed everything down on my Vista Home Premium laptop from web browsing to using windows explorer. I had to uninstall to fix the problem. I sent an email report of the problems to Tony.

    I agree. He was very quick to respond and get specifics about my laptop and software. I am sure he is working on it and I'll give it another try with the next build.

    I really like Shadow Defender and I hope to use it fully soon if it gets the promised added functions.

    I don't like it that the tray icon that was in Shadow Defender 1.0.0.130 has been changed and does not have "open" and "exit" function in Shadow Defender 1.1 beta.

    I find my reboot time is quite long sometimes (some minutes) when leaving shadow mode with lots of drive noise.

    I have written to the contact email address with my thoughts and worries but I did not recieve a reply.

    Tony asked to have this past along.

    Dear Jeff,
    Thank you very much. It will be ready within a month.
    I received some advices with UI, i will add them in the next release.
    And also some minor bugs will be fixed in the next release,
    but the next release version will not change much.

    Best regards,
    Tony
