    I like the typing Stat plugin.. :)

    Bitreplica is a new product.
    I checked the site and could not find any info on how much backup size they are offering. This is very basic question I fell they should have included.

    • Aibek Esengulov

      good point, looking into it

    • Anna

      You may have confused it with cloud backup services that offer online space for storing your backups. Bitreplica doesn’t provide online storage space for backups, it saves backups to user-specified locations. This means that the backup size is only limited by the capacity of the storage device you are using for saving it (your hard drive, a networked or external drive, USB stick, etc.)

    • GrrGrrr

      yes I thought it as a cloud backup. Thanks for correcting my understa

  • xbalesx
