Dear users! Because we are involved in some projects, we can not maintain the site
To be fair we will remove further registration of Google Chrome Backup.
This does not mean we will not have support for it. All of you who got the PRO version
of the tool, we will have a support for certain amount of time. But as you might be aware of, Google Chrome has become a major competitor and
it has certain features and more, which our GCB pro has and we think we can not give more
than that at this time. If you still want to have PRO version let us know (Contact sections of the page).
We also got some emails about the PathScanner CMD version. We are developing it and it's offline for now. Please bear with us.

I have more bonus features in a plan and all will come free for those already registered.
Before you register please read this license agreement:
- One idkey (license ID) is locked to two machines ID's. Once you active the idkey,
you can not use it again, hence you must save the license file (license.lic) to
a safe place and copy it to second PC. License file must be located in the same
directory as gcb.exe to bonus features to work.
- If you use the same license file on more than 2 machines, than the license will
automatically lock itself, hence you can not use bonus features again.
- The license validitiy is checked everytime you run the program and does not decrease
policy is valid when using Google Chrome Backup tool.
- If you think that your license is locked by our mistake, do not hesitate and email
us (include your id key) and we'll resolve the problem.
