Genie Timeline divides data backed up into two groups; Smart Selection and My Computer. The following table shows the major differences between the two groups.
|Smart Selection||My Computer|
|Definition||Contains various built-in plugins that you can use to backup some of the most important items on your computer||Allows you to backup files and folders from any location readily accessible from My Computer using an easy to use Windows Explorer-like interface.|
|System dependency||Plugins are system independent, i.e. users can backup favorites, for instance, from a Windows XP machine and restore them on a Windows Vista machine, without having to worry about the changed Windows environment||System dependent, it will restore to the same path it was taken from|
|Purpose||Easy to use, backs up data by type, even if user is unaware of file location||A complete view of all files/folders stored on the computer to be included in backup|
- If a file is selected from both Smart Selection and My Computer, it will only be backed up once.
- Smart Selection contains the preselected data for Genie Timeline. To modify, add, or remove the data, click on Customize selections.
- The My Computer tab is supported only when running under an Administrator user account.
