    Does anyone use this free program?

    I was wondering how quickly you can image your drive compared to something like Image for Windows, Ghost or TI?

    I realize it depends on amount of data, but lets say the hard drive had 30GB of data and you did an image with all 4 programs, how would DI XML compare to the others in the amount of time it takes to do a full backup image of the drive? Thanks for any help.

    I never tried it but it looks like a decent program. I'll have to try it out. It does look good compared to some of the overpriced payware apps that do the same thing. I guess most of the regular posters around here would rather pay for software that you can find for free. ;)

    When it comes to certain things the cheapest software is that which is 100% reliable. For example you could offer me a free version of what First Defense does and I'd not be interested because I know FD's reliablitity. Same thing is true of imaging and backup.


    PS I have to admit, for me it is a time vs money, thing and time is more valuable, as I use the computer for business. Probably isn't true for all.

    Pete is absolutely right. I know nothing about the DriveimageXML, but I do know that Image For Windows is reliable and use it exclusively. Peace of mind is worth a lot.
