But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.

CopyDoubler details

Send Article to a Friend

CopyDoubler details were lousy in last week's review. We gave the wrong AOL address and upgrade price. Sigh, that's what happens when you believe a database. The real AOL address is FIFTHGEN@aol.com and the upgrade price should be $19.95. If you snag the demo copy, which only works for three weeks, it includes an offer for $19.95 that's good until 31-Dec-93, which is the cheapest way to get CopyDoubler if you can't upgrade.
