    I used to want the answer to this question myself but never found an answer.

    I recently quit using Keriver because it failed me the one time I needed it. I needed to restore to a previous image but I could not do it using the boot menu or the Keriver restore disk. Lucky for me, I also had a Macrium Reflect image that I was able to restore to using a BartPE disk that I had with the Macrium Reflect Plugin.

    Good luck!

    CGuare,

    PM pandlouk; he is very 1CR-literate.

    It does backup the mbr... but does not give an option to restore it.

    If you want to restore the mbr you can download keriver 5.2 and create a bootable media with it. Keriver and 1-click images are the same and both products can mount/restore them.

    Thank you for the valuable info, pandlouk. I really appreciate it.

    I checked out KI and i 'm thinking about purchasing it. Unless i 'm mistaken, it 's also a complete drive imaging/file backup solution.

    A couple more questions, if i may:

    Could you suggest me any other comparable to KI (preferably freeware) program?

    Also, regarding MBR backup/restoration, which of the following tools would you suggest me to use with K1CR PRO (in case i choose to purchase the latter)?

    1. MBRWizard
    2. MBRtool
    3. MBRfix
    4. MBRutil
    5. HDHacker
    6. Bootice

    You are welcome. :)

    Yes, Keriver Image is a complete imaging/file backup solution.
    I don't now any freeware (except from the tools already included in win7) that gives you differential and incrementals and file backup in one solution.
    Good free solutions are:
    ActiveImage Protector Free Personal Edition (full, differential and incrementals)
    Paragon free (full, differential)
    1 click free(full, deifferential and incrementals)

    About the tools. I suggest either MBRWizard or BootIce.

    I too am using Keriver 1-Click Restore Free, although it is slow and cumbersome sometimes i mean regarding the speed, it has not failed me during the restore process.

    This is the second Free Backup Program i am using and will use it till i see some reason not to.

    Hi guys :)

    Does anyone know if Keriver is still supported and updated? It does not appear anything has changed on his site since 2011. I hope he is still around. I had a few emails with him last year and he seemed liked a nice fellow. I remember when he stopped by here and posted some also. I hope he is doing well.

    thanks

    Hi pandlouk :)

    I noticed on your signature, that you use Appguard. I went to their site and it sounds interesting and a great tool. I am not familiar with them, but their price is good, 20$ for 3 users.

    What is your opinion about Appguard and how has it performed along other security software. Not meaning to get off topic, just thought I would ask.

    Thanks
    Jim

    I tried to test drive Keriver but no matter what i do It cant access the MBR in the initial step. It says failed. I turned of MBR in appguard i turned off all other security programs and no dice.

    Disable AppGuard MBR protection, restart PC and then you will have acces to MBR.
