    Alright Im currently using Paragon Backup and Recovery v10.1 free. I recently switched to O&O for defraging. I really have always like the O&O software. Ive never had an issue with stability. Can anyone comment on their backup software?

    i have one simple word. sucks. lol. but really it works okay but i hope you like to wait. it takes a long time and incrementals takes even longer than the full backup

    I have used O&O to restore MANY machines. It is wonderful. The only problem I ran into was when trying to do a Machine independent restore from a desktop mainboard based system to a tyan server board system. In all fairness, shadowprotect could not restore it either.

    For the money, nothing beats it in my opinion.

    I use it and I like it. I especially like that you can do a system restore on any computer from the recovery disk. This alone has really helped me when a computer wouldn't boot into Windows.

    i would use macrium in a heartbeat before O&O and i do own O&O as well. it sits in my draw because its just soooo slow. as i said it works okay just wish they would fix the problem with the time it takes to make a incremental

    Just for further clarification. I do not use it for differentials/incrementals. I use it for entire image and its fast.
