A beta version is typically the first new version of a product that is released by the developers of the software. The purpose of beta versions is for real-world testing. As such, the software will probably contain bugs or glitches. Unless your interested in testing the product to help the developers find these bugs, you should wait for the full release.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw

I just read the tutorial on cobian and tried to start my first backup. The tutorial said to copy C:\ to G:\. There is know G:\ on my system. I figured that cobian would create G:\. But I get an error , that say, error while creating or updating the archive G:\ Cannot create file G:\ The system cannot find the path specified. Any ideas on what I have to do. Thanks Joe Mc
