Taking advantage of the subject.

Does anyone know if it is possible for you to launch a window and it's already a sticky one?

If this functionality exists (and I believe so) it depends exclusively on the developer or can it be controlled by other means?

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
