The main difference is Co-Branded will have “Powered by Mypcbackup” on your clients Control Panel, Re-Branded will have all reference to Mypcbackup removed. The gap in the price is because we could have sold the program and software out to large companies for 60K-80K as a pure “whitelabel”. But we thought we would put this out to everyone, small, medium and large companies or even individuals. Of course it benefits us also. Removing all trace of us means our software looks like it’s actually yours. Remember, we’ve done all the hard work by creating the online backup software and the reseller program. Last Update: 05/27/2014

At the moment our backup isn't stable on a server so couldn't guarantee it would work in exchange and SQL.
We haven't tested it on a server properly, so not at the moment. However, we are planning this for 2015. Last Update: 02/13/2014
Yes you still get billed, the suspended state is for your benefit to stop the customers service to chase payment.
The only way to not pay, is to delete the customer.
The space, i.e 30GB, regardless whether or not someone doesn’t use the backup, still costs us money each month, so needs to be paid monthly. Last Update: 02/13/2014

The left hand link should now say “software download links” Last Update: 05/27/2014
