    Looking at this,it reminds me of Wondershare Liveboot/Spotmau Powersuite,I'm not sure if they're related at all o_O .

    Regardless of that the home user version is free and contains some useful functionality,so it's well worth a look.

    This looks very promising.

    I wonder why so few posts

    Has anyone used this before?

    Thank you donaddams for letting us know about this. :)

    @ andy, I agree, it may be a re-label, although spotmau is still up and running their site. I am not familiar with Wondershare.

    Not a bad price for the Pro suite from Lazesoft, 27.95. Anyone give it a shot yet? I like the fact it is a bootable solution, just have no idea how good it is.

    Looks like a download moment at least for the free home version LOL

    I've tried it out and it works very well.It's functionality is identical to Wondershare/Spotmau,I'm convinced that they share common code.Amazing that they offer the "basic" version free,it's an extremely useful bit of kit.:thumb:

    Oh that sounds great andy. Thanks for letting us know. Going to give it a try myself. What did you think of the imaging capabilities in the free version? Limitations?

    Thanks again :)

    Never heard of this. I'll wait for some expert testers from here.

    Well, I downloaded the free version, created a USB boot flash drive, restarted and it booted and finally entered the interface.

    I created the Linux version boot, and went into disk imaging/cloning module, and unfortunately, it could see no other drives other than the USB flash drive, meaning it would require likely creating a WinPE type of boot device.

    I think this is the first time I ever had a problem with a linux based boot recovery disk being able to detect fixed drives. It does state if you cannot see the windows volume, the WinPe *may* be a better option.

    Possibly not a very quality linux based boot disk. Not going to bother with the WinPe, as I have no desire to download the WAIK from M$ LOL.

    Andy, did you have any issues with the linux boot disk? All mine saw was the flash drive. I booted into "Fast" mode when the initial menu came up, but it also offered safe mode which i assumed meant no changes would be made, but I could be wrong.

    Oh well, it was worth a try. I hope it actually works for you other testers. Maybe their "Pro" version has a better linux boot disk, but this kind of thing turns me off as I have always had good results booting into linux recovery with most apps that I recall. Maybe a slightly unfinished product.

    Jim
