It's extremely difficult to compete in the backup software market. There
are thousands of apps and online backup services, and just buying a click on
Google costs $2.00. We've decided to go the other way and give CascadePoint
away for free, hopefully building traffic to our site and drawing more
attention to Take Command -- which is always going to be our core product.

In the recovery dialog, clicking Find File and giving a file mask that ends
up matching nothing takes several minutes. Perhaps it will never finish --
over 10 minutes so far.

Version 2.50.46

C:\CPArchive>*dir c:\cparchive /s/u
...
Total for: C:\cparchive\*
2,562,492,500 bytes in 26,060 files and 21,752 dirs 2,628,825,088
bytes allocated

One inconvenience I run into is remembering whether I called e.g. a .pl file
a script, code, or text file. I know the path where it is, but unless I
start in the right file type, I won't find it.

I thought using the Find File dialog would help, but something appears
broken.

According to procmon, CP is doing QueryOpen at about 3kHz.

Sorry for the OT post -- I forgot about the specific CP support group.
