What do you need to backup?
Alohabob PC Backup makes it easy for you to select which data is most important to you on your PC. With its unique AIDE (Automated Information Discovery Engine) technology, Alohabob PC Backup ranks every file and setting on your PC and allows you to quickly find items that you need to backup. No need to spend hours figuring out if you need to backup that unknown file on your PC.
The latest release of Alohabob PC Relocator Ultra Control includes several new Smart features that assist the user during the entire upgrade process, including:
With SmartRank you can easily determine the critical files and settings to backup based on our unique AIDE technology.
The average PC has 30,000 to 50,000 different files in hundreds of different formats making it extremely difficult to know what is important to backup on your PC. With SmartSelect the user doesn't have to be an expert to figure this out. With both search and ranking capabilities SmartSelect offers users even more power to quickly and easily choose critical data.
With a comprehensive set of 15 templates, Alohabob PC Backup allows you to quickly select only those items of interest, and create your own templates to reflect your unique backup needs.
Once you complete your first backup, SmartDetect recognizes and copies only the files that have been modified since the previous backup session.
Use PC Shortcuts to easily select specific common files to backup such as email, pictures, music, videos, finance files, etc.
If you need to backup a specific file, SmartSearch offers an intuitive way to locate any particular file or folder on your PC and automatically add it to your backup

2) It cannot run an incremental back-up on demand. Instead, an incremental back-up must be scheduled.
3) It is slower than Backup which comes free with Windows XP.
If you are dissatisfied with Windows XP's Backup, and don't find the features mentioned in the reviews above compelling, I recommend to continue searching for something better.
During the restore process, I then received numerous errors, each of them requiring me to click 'Yes' when asked if I wanted to proceed. I got tired of clicking Yes around the 100 or so mark and decided to click no. When you click 'no', EVERYTHING is undone; there is no 'ignore all' function so I had to sit through every prompt and got tired of it and decided that proceeding with 1000 files and answering yes would involve too much pain for me. I then selected a smaller group of files to have restored, only the 'My Documents' folder but ran into the same situation. Eventually I ran a test on a small folder to have restored and still ran into the errors but pressed through. Hardly any of the files were received error free and those that had issues were never restored. My guess is approximately 2/3 or 3/4 of my files were not restored and of course none that really mattered made it.
I had the latest update applied to the program, so that should not be the cause. I would have done better to slick my entire hard drive without going through the backup process as I would have been at nearly the same place but without experiencing all the headaches, frustrations and an investment of hours, no DAYS of my time.
The program has been recently purchased by Microsoft for inclusion in the Vista OS, I imagine. It will do well as a Microsoft product, as it fails to deliver upon its promises.
I'm running XP - but this program refuses to load - and won't load from the start prompt, despite the supplied directions.
So, I've got nothing, right? Next step oughta be their website for a little support, right? Forget it. It's a shell with absolutely nobody sitting in any office anywhere - except maybe a cashier counting your money.
This text clip from the AlohaBob site really says it all: "This site has been disabled for the time being." Oh - plus their "speak to a live person" chat deal for those looking for help doesn't work - in either IE or Firefox (so there is no support).
Do not throw away your money on this dead end, rip off product.
