I am new to imaging backups so I had a question about Keriver 1CRP I read that it can restore the image without using a recovery cd, which is very convenient. (I do know that you can create a recovery cd in case the hard drive does fail). I am wondering, how fast is the restore on boot up (without the recovery cd)? Basically can the image be restored every day conveniently and fast so I could have a fresh OS every day? Does this put wear on the hard drive in any way, and are there other imaging software that also can do this without a recovery cd? With my limited knowledge of these things, I am thinking that if the image can boot up conveniently/fast without a cd, wouldn't this be a surefire replacement for virtualizing (Returnil etc.)?
