"Since day one we've been committed to continuing to improve the Time Machine experience online and our advanced controls within the scheduler have already been a huge crowd pleaser. Our users asked, and we responded, to how they want to use Dolly Drive."

Version 1.6 upgrades are available for all Dolly Drive subscribers and will be included in all new Dolly Drive subscriptions beginning Tuesday, November 15.
