I'm one of the individuals that always had great success with AX64 v1 and v2. I almost always just used hot restores. I even did a successful restore on W10 as a mere experiment. In the vein of an "old friend," I just downloaded the beta but upon the attempted installation was warned "not compatible with Norton's boot protection" and to disable it. I was aware of the new recovery system but had no idea of the potential conflict with Norton Security. So here is the thing. Indeed, my Macrium incremental restores pretty much mimic AX's hot restores in speed (and of course in reliability) and although I've never even come close to ever having any type of malware, is it really worth the risk disabling the Norton feature just for the sake of an "old friend?" Thank you!
