Little confused. What is the difference between Boot media builder and Recovery media builder? I have the paid Paragon HD mgr 14. But find it more difficult to use than my old True image software. The new acronis seemed to have bad review so switched to paragon when I changed from Win XP. Now have a desktop with win 8.1 and laptop with win 7. I ended up making a boot cd with BMB but it was not easy. Windows 8 and 7 had to download something else to a blank dvd and I had to install that first with that dvd before I could then use BMB to make a boot disk. Don't remember going thru all that with acronis. Thanks for any suggestions.
