    I wanted to share this. O&O DiskImage gets almost no attention, but it's actually a decent product. It pales next to ShadowProtect and IFW, etc., but for a basic image tool it works fine. I've done many restores with it and never had an issue. One of my main issues with it is that it appears you can't restore and resize paritions. Even though it's not talked about in the manual, you can do this. I can't post the PDF apparently but if anyone is interested in it send me a message and I can mail it to you...unless someone knows a way to post a PDF. Thanks.

    My comment is : O&O DiskImage is not as good as ShadowProtect and IFW/D/L.:D

    Oh I agree, not debating that. Like I said, it pales to those, but is a decent basic imager and can do more than the manual states. I primarily use IFL and StorageCraft.

    have they finally fixed the issue of making a incremental backup where it takes LONGER than a full backup did??

    Yes, I tested this recently and my incremental took only a few minutes.

    I love the GUI and the boot disk is really good too (you get many other tools on the boot CD, like a scaled down reg editor, disk management, networking, scan disk, etc.). It does have to mature though...hoping v6 will make it more competitive with the others. The product would benefit from some focus from O&O.
