    Default Gigabyte Utilities

    I noticed Gigabyte has updated versions of 2 utilities for my GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0).
    Smart Recovery2 and AutoGreen.
    I'm wondering if many of you folks are using these and what features and function you like or hate about either.
    thanks!

    Well it looks like Smart Recovery2 is a back-up solution.
    I'm using cloud (Backblaze) and incrementals for work document backups, Microsoft back-up for OS,etc. So I guess Smart Recovery2 would be redundant

    I'm using a similar setup as yourself... Win7's Windows Backup for the OS and my docs are sync'd with my SkyDrive account... no need for Smart Recovery

    I don't have any use for the AutoGreen feature, I'm not a huge fan of BT.

    Sorry I can't give you any other information.

    OS = Win7 64 Bit

    Thanks, that's really the type answer I was looking for.
    It does look like Autogreen is just a blutoothe solution, not what I expected from the name (maybe GreenTooth or AutoBT would be a better name).
    I just don't have the time to track down every piece of info on all the "features" of the multitude of software and hardware solutions I employ, so
    Thanks Again!

    my issue with BT is it's another antenna that will help kill my Cell battery for what 1-2 devices... I use my phone as a phone and need it to work

    I turn the BT on my Phone ON only when I need it... Transfer Images, Take/Receive a call... Otherwise it just kills my battery too quick.
