The coolest part of this software is the automated backup software. You can set it up to wake up the other machines on your network through WOL and do backups. The backed-up files are consolidated: meaning that even though I've got four XP machines in my house, the common files are only stored once in order to cut down on disk space.

Sure there are other solutions like this, but this is really easy to setup and administer.
