    Has this program been updated? About 1 1/2 years ago I used APTonCD and the backup portion was very easy, I have about a dozen or so PPAs that I use. However, when I attempted to restore my programs APTonCD would not restore my items (I had a total system failure) and had to manually restore the programs I had, some PPA’s were hard to find again. Not sure if it was the PPAs that would cause this (it’s the only thing I can think of). Anyway, I would definitely recommend a test restore instead of finding out the hard way like I did. I do like the purpose and ease of this program though.
