Untitled[edit]

Regarding notability: I think this falls under "Note that a specific product or service may be notable on its own, without the company providing it being notable in its own right. In this case, an article on the product may be appropriate, and notability of the company itself is not inherited as a result." from Wikipedia:Notability_(organizations_and_companies)#Products_and_services. The site has gained nearly a million visitors in the span of five months, see [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.179.88.207 (talk) 14:04, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

I agree - completely notable. This page is linked to by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_backup_software .

All of this is useful for someone researching FOSS backup options. This is an extremely important topic for anyone wishing to guarantee long-term storage of their data. Proprietary solutions are not an option, as this places the ability to recover data OUT of the hands of the owner of the data. Consequently having a list of open source backup software is important.

Any description of a software package is then pretty reliant on information about that package, so I think the editorial comment about attribution should also be removed, but someone else can do that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Prosaicpat (talkcontribs) 12:11, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Free for commercial use?[edit]

Can anybody find out if this is free for commercial business use?

That would be a nice addition to the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.237.59.2 (talk) 16:34, 5 February 2013 (UTC)
