    you dont need a specific link just go to O&O's web site and this code works on any software they sell just add it in the cart.

    the main links is here http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/ and this can be COMBINED with any shown discounted price already shown.

    I am hunting for a good simple to use back up imaging software, and upon reading this post and looking at the web site, may I ask if O&O is OK for a home user with intermediate computer abilities. I see they label it as "professional edition". I like the "One touch" feature if it's that simple. But I don't see a "Home" addition so I'm asking if it's compatible with a home type user. How do you folks like it compared to something like Acronis? I assume the discount isn't still valid now that it's July, but that's OK. Sorry if I took this thread off topic. :)

    i used to use O&O and for me its the most complicated (options wise) to use, it was pretty good as far as i remember but i believe a backup software should be simple and straight forward, i like to keep my tweaking to security software, not backup software, hence the reason i fell in love with Active@ Disk Image

    if you want a single use discount code for Active@ then let me know ;)

    I have not tried the latest version, but I think DiskImage is very easy to use, once you get used to the ribbon-style interface, which is confusing at first, and to some differences with other imaging programs (the bar that shows the cache operation, for example). In fact, DI is simpler to use than Paragon. And the WinPE disk is good.

    For me it is worth trying it, and of course is useful in a home environment.

    Update -- i checked the coupon code, it did not work (maybe because I don´t live in the US).

    Treehouse785,
    Thanks for the response and info. I checked out the Active@Disk Image web site and went over some of the info. This may be a stupid question, but I can't seem to find a place where it says I can back up to an external hard drive. I have a Seagate 2tb external hard drive where I back up to. Is this a standard option?

    Thanks for offering a discount code. If the above is doable I would be thankful. :) What would be the discount?

    yes you can backup to an external drive and it is a standard option (tested this myself).

    the discount code is for 20% so am pretty sure this will be added on top of the 15% discount Active@ are already offering.

    just PM me if you want the code :thumb:

    O&O DiskImage 5.5 is great...I used it a lot a while ago (I use IFW/IFL now). Never had an issue with it. A tad quirky with some options (German-to-English translations) but it's solid. Check it out.

    Correction: The WinPE disk is not so good. I have not been able to add drivers for an USB 3.0 card to it. I have tried to add them temporarily or permanently (via DISM), and neither process works.

    I have done this with other WinPE disks without problems.

    Just grabbed CleverCache for same price, maybe snakeoil but I like their Defrag and I somewhere in my imagination(?) things does feel more stable under heavy usage.

    Dear Napoleon The Great,

    I just collect software, hardly use them. However, you have every imaging software like me, and you have tested them all. Basically, you are an expert.

    I can't believe that you will miss an opportunity to acquire such an excellent imaging software for just $12.74

    Try it and then give us your expert view.

    Kindest regards,

    KOR!

    KOR,

    I have used DiskImage since v4, now on v5.5. I don't use it as my primary, but all the times I have used it, it has been solid. Never an issue with a restore. I also like the boot CD (which is all I use anyway) as it has a lot of other features on it like disk management, registry editor, etc. (It's a scaled down version of their BlueCon application). The only issue I have is there is a way to restore and resize partitions (although it's not in the manual)...I got a PDF from support on how to do it and it has never worked for me. For me, it's no big deal as I don't do that anyway usually and if I did I can use many of the free disk management tools to do it. The next version - v6 - promises to have a lot of cool stuff in it which I hope it does as it hasn't competed well with the bigger imagers out there.

    Dear Napoleon,

    Thanks again for your input. I don't want to burn a CD. However, I have installed the ISO both on USB and in the BCD store using EasyBCD. On both methods, it asks for registration key and then it reboots.

    Do you know where to put the registration information while using USB and/or BCD store?

    Many thanks and best regards,

    KOR!

    P.S. If not then I have to open a ticket and ask support.
