I mentioned this app to my mate ages ago and he looked at me like I was mad and was making it up.
Mind you, you'd probably have to be mad to use it these days, since the transfer rates must be very, very slow.

A museum pice these days really?

Why ????!!!! :-?
If you want to back up your Winuae setup just copy the hdf.
The fastest way to backup today is to buy an removable harddisk bay to install in a 5,25 bay and a hardisk then just copy the files to that and remove it.
If want you don´t to do that just use CD-RWs.

Apple did it right the first time, bring back the Newton!

Videobackup was a cheap way to do big backups back then but now it´s obsolete.
Actually history repeat itself C64-music casette---CDTV/CD-ROM,  Amiga Videobackup---DVD writers, then the next big media should be a datamedia.

Actually, I have a stack of stuff on tape already, and I was going to transfer it all to cd-r.  just wanted to know if it would work properly, as I dont want to damage the device...

Well the only hardware problem i can think of is if it uses the amigas extra powerline on the serialport.
