Genie Timeline’s new Metro-style Smart Selection screen makes it very easy to choose the type of files you’d like to back up for instance: Office files, emails, bookmarks, videos, pictures, whatever it might be.
Backup speeds are claimed to be twice as fast as they were with the previous release.
Genie Timeline 2012's Metro-style interface makes it easier than ever to configure your backup
A new internal deduplication algorithm reduces the size of your backup by avoiding storing multiple copies of the same file throughout the archive.
View your system in Explorer and a backup marker will indicate which folders are being backed up by Timeline 2012.
And additional restoration options make it easier to find and recover files from a backup.
All these additions are available in Genie Timeline Free 2012, and of course the commercial Home ($39.95), Professional ($59.95) and Server ($250) editions add even more: backup scheduling, disaster recovery, an enhanced compression engine, and the ability to limit the size of the backup, amongst other improvements.
