    This is the second article presenting several free system and data imaging programs for Windows, including cross-platform solutions, programs that run from within Windows from live CD, built-in Windows tools, advanced options, and more. Take a look inside.

    Great article, thanks! I've used Redo a few times and like it...it doesn't get a lot of face time compared to others.

    Hi

    With great respect to MRKVONIC may I suggest that the reviews at Techsupportalert are more appropriate for the majority of users, albeit a number of the programs described in MRKVONICs article are represented in techsupportalert's review.

    I suppose its a question of how you arrive at the conclusion. Clonezilla as one example might be a favourite (of MRKVONIC) but it is hardly user friendly for a beginner. Techsupportalert's assessments are more logical.

    Terry

    Why don't you link to that article so we can all check that?
    P.S. You mentioned ease of use, my most important factor is reliability.
    When you restore your system, you don't want any errors.
    Reliability, factor no.1 in determining the best.

    Helpful info there Mrkvonic,however version 5 of Macrium Reflect free is out now which allows the creation of a WindowsPE recovery disc so you might wish to update your review.

    Yes I've been using it on my other pc and the WinPE disc is a huge improvement over the relatively clumsy BartPE plugin.Macrium has always been rock solid and fast for me,this version is no different.I haven't directly compared speed with v4 but it performs very well.

    Cool thanks for the input on that. Glad it's a lot better, although I admit I liked the v4 interface better.

    Thanks for sharing:) I use clonezilla. I have used to restore my system partition for about 20 times with no failure. Now I am using clonezilla that comes bundled with Partition Magic.
