Cons
"To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time.""Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't.""The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer."
