    What backup speed etc. do you guys use for Terrabyte's Image4Windows. My Win7 CDrive is 45Gbs (don't ask why, I don't know myself why its so bloated). Including I4W's Mr. Politeness, "Phylock" waiting for 'writing to C to stop' it takes about 35 mins. on 'normal' setting to save a backup.

    Haven't experimented with other settings. What do you guys use by way of tweaks & settings??

    of all the imaging programs i have tried the fastest ones were Windows 7/8 own imaging, Storagecraft ShadowProtect or whatever it's called and Terabytes product.

    go ahead, you can't go wrong with IFW

    if you have problems with Phylock just use an optical disk at boot times.
    problem solved! :)

    I always use image for linux (it works better when has to detect USBs and does not froze the mouse usb port in some older machines).

    same here flamerz :) IFL is really an amazing utility and performs imaging faster than most others I have tried. I regularly use IFL and BIBM as I prefer to do cold imaging personally.

    Brian, Mudcrab and Pandlouk and others are really helpful with all the details on how to make the most of these utilities, and I love the fact it is NOT bloatware! :)

    Thanks guys :)

    It takes about 5 min for me to backup/restore Windows 7 with all updates + drivers on it, using IFW. 45gb would not have taken more then 10-15 minutes i guess. But i have 120gb SSD's, i7 3370k and 16gb ram.

    But i switched back to Acronis, it is also fast.
