That's about what I thought. Let me ask you a question about that, though.
They do a backup every 15 minutes according to the tech. Would that be too
much to worry about even if I upgraded to be able to use NBackup
functionality? Would I be better off, say, doing my thing every hour or so
to at least give them as small a lose of data as possible?
