    I'm now using Keriver 1-click Restore Pro 3.0. It works good, but cloning is a major part of my security so --I want to look at other cloning software that will create a BOOTABLE Flash Drive image (i.e. it has its own Master Boot Record).

    I will greatly appreciate any & all suggestions.

    Just as long as you don't send in the clowns. ;) Just my little joke for the day. :)

    MUCH MUCH appreciated! I downloaded all 3. Testing to ensue using Shadow Defender (virtual sys).

    QUESTION: Which of the 3 is *safest* & *easiest* to use in the hands of an impatient user who hates to read instructions?

    I am a PAID Reflect user. Although it requires a little setup, once it's in place it's a Set'n'Forget type of operation, and it looks as though it may be setup on a schedule for automatic cloning as well.

    I have not used the other options although many have said they work well...

    I know how you feel, this has been my "handicap" as well. Months ago I tried Macrium Reflect FREE, but I couldn't figure out how to use it safely, without messing anything up. I will soon try again.
