Thank you for the review - I always appreciate it. Which StoreOnce are you using? If you've been using it for 3 years, I'm guessing the portfolio updates have replaced what you have now. For those that don't know the portfolio well, here's a blog post with a good overview. Be sure to watch the videos too: http://hpstorage.me/1Ff6fB0
