    I've been using shadow protect for a long time always found it very solid... but it does lack features so I have tended to use acronis to fill the gaps disk e.g. cloning but it goes through phases of being reliable or a waste of time.

    I am looking to swap Acronis out
    • Macruim 1of 3 failures in testing clones
    • Eeseus to do back - seems fast and reliable from my tests
    • Aomei Backupper - but seems very slow at cloning SSD
    • Paragon - kinda of like

    Any opinions about reliability very welcome?

    starfish_001,

    Acronis has bad press. I used it years ago without issues. Maybe I'm lucky as I've never had a restore or clone failure with any imaging software (MBR systems). So in my experience they are all reliable.

    Successful cloning is very operator dependent.

    Tried Macruim on windows 10 - with auto shutdown - failed to create a working image 2 / 4 - a pity as this is something I want to like

    looks like either
    • Eeseus to do back - seems fast and reliable from my tests
    • Aomei Backupper - but seems very slow at cloning SSD
    Raxco instant recovery seems to work okay with windows 10 though

    @starfish_001 You can give lazesoft recovery suite a try. There is also a free home version. I was unable to boot windows 10 due to an incompatible app. So I did a restore and all went fine:). I do backups and restore only using boot media.
