    I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the techs that your guys bring to me for taking the weight of the world off of my shoulders. I just foolish emptied my trash bin last night without knowing that lots of folders are still needed. They contained all of my important data products and represented analysis work that was performed by my co-workers over a ten year period. Your app has got all of the data back as it was and saved us from this tight spot. So thank you.

    One last thing is that the scanning process takes too long…Will the next version be better? Also, can I get the next version for free?
