WTM gradually fills its buffer with data that would have been written to the hard disk. In a few days, if you aren\'t around and the buffer fills up, an alarm will sound for awhile and then when it does get full the computer will probably freeze and you\'ll have to turn the computer off by using its on/off switch. This can cause files to get corrupted and you can lose data and possibly damage system files so I that is why I don\'t like using WTM otherwise it is a great program. Would be nice if the programmers would address this issue with not having a limit on the buffer except perhaps the free space on the disk and then it would be an acceptable solution.
