    Yeah I've used Active@ Boot Disk Win Edition before and thought the Active@ Disk Image backup was fast and restoring them worked without problems, makes me wonder if their backup software is home grown or re-branded? I How good are the backups made inside the normal Windows Environment and are they reliable like the Boot Disk backups.

    Active Disk Image 3.2.6 has been working good so far. I did notice that it is throwing some errors in the event log when doing an image. The error is this:

    I see that error in the logs twice every time the program does an image, once at the beginning and the other at the end. I've restored images done even though this error occurs but just wondering that maybe the images are reliable because of these error. Anyone seen this on their system or know if it matters towards the images?

    I seriously considered this before settling with Drive Snapshot. At that time, the Active@ trial version did not allow me to create a Boot (Rescue) CD, so I was unable to assure myself that it could reliably do a bare-metal restore. I was also put-off because it did not do differential backups (which I find very useful).
