We will be having a LIVE special presentation from St. George, Utah by Gene Barlow of User Group Relations. It will be this Tuesday evening at the normal ComSoc monthly General Mtg, 11/23/2010. Gathering time is 7 - 7:15 pm and for our normal questions, discussion on problems and announcements. The presentation will be at approximately 7:30pm. The topic Gene will cover is in the press release below:

The Best Backup Plan to Protect your System from Failure

Every computer should be backed up so that your computers' hard drive is adequately protected and can recover from any unforeseen events, such as hard drive failures, viruses or unstable software downloads.  By having & implementing a well thought-out Backup and Recovery Plan, you can put your system together again fairly quickly, instead of days or weeks of rebuilding the system.  Gene will demonstrate Acronis True Image Home 2011, the latest version of this popular computer backup and recovery program.  This is an important topic that every end-user should understand.


Gene will also spend a few minutes at the end of his presentation focusing on the best way to Organize Your Hard Drive.  Acronis just released a new version of their partitioning product, Disk Director 11 Home with support for the Windows7 OS.   Large terabyte hard drives today can be set up & organized to take advantage of the additional space.  This can be done very easily with a special "partitioning utility", like Acronis Disk Director, making this organization process easy and simple to do.  The combination of one or both of these excellent hard drive utilities will give you the power to Protect Your Hard Drive from system failure and Organize Your Hard Drive for better safety of your data files.


Gene has been a presenter in the user group community for over 28 years.  For many years he managed IBM's user group support organization and has been called the Father of PC User Groups.  Now retired, Gene, and his wife Linda, started their own company called User Group Relations (, providing support to the user group community for the software companies they represent.  He is an informative and easy to understand presenter.  Don't miss this important presentation.


Hope to see everyone there!

We will have available copies of Acronis True Image Home 2011 and Acronis Disk Director 11 Home available at a special discounted price for this meeting only. Bring cash, check or credit card.

Disks available on the spot! (And one copy to be used as a door prize!!)
