Genie Timeline Free 2.1

What is Genie Timeline Free?  (from Genie-Soft)

Swift backups that work in the background. Install, configure to your preference, and you’re done. Protection level to indicate the health of the backup. Disaster Recovery is only available in Genie Timeline Home and Pro.


Genie Timeline Free 2.1 is a software program developed by Genie-Soft. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named genietimeline.exe. The setup package generally installs about 55 files. The installed file GSUpdater.dll is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 40% of users of Genie Timeline Free come from the United States, it is also popular in Sweden and Belgium.
