QuotePack & Go is no replacement for regular (daily!) backups created with a real backup software.If you have no daily backup routine in place - you definitely should! Your hard disk / SSD may die at any time, or a virus wipes your disk or encrypts all files! The only help in that case is a working and current backup of all your disks.
Quote from: Mario on January 22, 2023, 12:34:01 PMIf you do real backups with Macrium and you don't use IMatch on multiple computers, there is no need for you to use Pack & Go at all. If the prompt bothers you, disable it under Edit > Preferences > Application. Search for backup on that page.

Should be quicker than Pack & Go, since copying and packing and verifying all the other files in the package takes longer than copying the database.
