Submission + - Continuous Backup?

AjStone writes: My company uses a SonicWALL CDP appliance which I have fallen in love with. Unfortunately, this product line is insanely expensive. What is important though, is how well that company has created an application which runs in the background and continuously sends a copy of the "changed" data back to the appliance for safeguard. This is not a "bare-metal" backup (though it is possible), but instead a safeguard for documents, spreadsheets, graphics, etc. We use this appliance to have a to-the-second archive of your latest work so recovery will be instant if disaster strikes. What do you use for such a wonderful solution, if any? Have you heard of any products with a smaller pricetag?

Submission + - Vista Update Promises Performance and Reliability

AjStone writes: Earlier this month Microsoft posted an update to Windows Vista that is not automatically pushed through Windows Update. The update (KB938979) states "This is a performance update. Install this update to improve the performance of Windows Vista in certain scenarios." and "These issues have been reported by customers who are using the Error Reporting service or Microsoft Customer Support Services." There are seperate downloads for 32 and 64-bit Windows Vista installations. Seems like Microsoft is actually listening on the other end of the "Send Error Report" button.
