    I've tried it and found it to be vesatile and reliable. However, I've been a Drive Snapshot user for several years now and I just can't break the habit. ;)

    I agree with you there. I use DS primarily and IFW/IFL as a backup. Both are placed on my bootable flash. (Thank you Yumi).

    For anyone considering it, please keep in mind the outstanding support by Terabyte and here at Wilders from members like Brian K.

    Nate, I'm curious as to why Yumi (multiboot) to run both DS and IFW from the same flash drive? After all WinPE supports both of them; or is it for Linux (and IFL)?

    ok i think ifw is good..but when you restore an image with like 16,18 character in password [to secure your image]
    there is no option like a text to include your password and do a copy/paste
    whe the password is needed.
    i used ifl when restoring because is faster.

    That's true. But I use Yumi because I can add other bootable discs to the grub chain, like anti malware discs, Ubuntu, DBAN, etc. Plus Yumi is a cool tool to just play around with. But, I do have an added custom Win7Rescue disc.

    No I don't. I know what it is, I never tested it, it has an excellent reputation, I couldn't vote.

    New option please.

    No - I read about it but never tried. I don't know if I like it or not.

    Dear Nate,

    Can you teach me how to use Yumi?

    I have WinPE ISOs of all my imaging programs, but I don't want to put them separately each one on different USBs. I want to have them on one USB.

    Can all these imaging programs be built as one WinPE ISO rather than separate WinPE ISOs?

    I have used xBoot in the past and build all my all my WinPE imaging programs ISOs on one USB. But I have found following problems with it.

    1. It doesn't unrar the WinPE ISOs, so when I boot into one of the WinPE ISOs, I cannot access the contents in other WinPE ISOs.
    2. If I built a new WinPE ISO with the latest version of the imaging program, than I have to rebuild xBoot from the scratch again.

    I found out with YUMI, one can add and delete ISOs as and when required. But I had problem building with Yumi. I went all the way down and picked each time for my two WinPE ISOs as, "Try an unlisted ISO", I got the following:

    1. It gave me a Yumi error 27, "unrecognized command", when I tried to boot in on the imaging programs.
    2. The two WinPE ISOs were not unrar like in xBoot.

    Best regards,

    KOR!

    I sure will. But let's continue this via PM, so as not to hijack further.

    i own everything out there as far as backup / image is concerned and i use ifw on my own personal systems. for me its been the most reliable there is it has a bit of a learning curve but if you spend the time it rewards... and i LOVE the new way to make a recovery disk without any win pe or anything extra installed just awesome..

    I thought you were talking about imaging software in general then after reading the posts, i realized it was a specific imaging software. :D
