Just to make things clear, NCU seems to be unreliable for some never
for me after all of these years.
Don't know anything about Windows but on a Mac you have to 'obey' just
two rules:

- Make sure that NCU has enough memory allocated, you do this by
selecting the icon of the applications itself and choosing Command-I
(or in the menu File -> Get Info)
- Make a fresh backup every time, don't update the one you made before.
