IMVVVVHO... I *would* use it if it worked: typical case is trying to rescue a broken system with a live USB key and needing to copy some data to a different machine. Given it only supports SMBv1, I more and more find it useless, as the other side won't cope. If it was upgraded to support a newer version of SMB protocol... but that would be another story and it's unlikely to happen. bye av.
