You know… I’ve been beating on Trend’s door now for some time about a heap of issues… one of them being disk space consumed by Trends Worry-Free Business Security products. I heard rumours that they were working on a tool to resolve this and then found out today via one of the other posters in the community that they had in fact released a tool to solve this nearly a month ago now. Ok – so I’m more than a little upset that they didn’t let me know that the things I’ve been asking about have been resolved. To me this reinforces the fact that Trend are a company of good engineers, that don’t know how to communicate to us in the SMB space. They need to get this right and fast now if they are to survive the competitive landscape that is around us.
One of the ways they are doing this with with a cool utility called Trendy. This utility runs on your computer and will notify you whenever they release new things for us in the SMB space. You can download it here. When run it will show you the latest cool announcements from Trend that pertain to the SMB space. You can see below where they have announced a utility to help clean up disk space on a regular basis for WFBS 5.x and 6.0.
Go ahead – check it out – it’s pretty cool.
