Effective May 5th, 2016, Nero will discontinue Nero BackItUp

by byte314 / January 19, 2016 9:37 AM PST

Could CNET do a story about this and solutions for folks like me to get my files off of NERO. I would also like to see what other cloud base solutions are out there as well. I mainly have all video from iPhone uploaded to NERO. What would be a good alternative and one that will stay around. I would say I have over 2TB of video uploaded to NERO Backitup right now.

Actually these are backups of what's on your PC

So why would we need to get the files off of NERO?

Now if you meant you STORED files there, you copy them back just like you did in the past and done.

A 2TB external here is under 99 bucks so given the cloud rent I tend to buy a new drive from time to time and use my own system with sync apps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
