    Indeed this does sound too good to be true. I'm not going to discard acronis or Paragon for this.

    Well, on a quick look, it seems to be Red Hat Linux based iso. I kind of assume that its a simple bootable canned implementation of dd suitable for typical Windows users. Beta right now.

    I decided to try this software. Heres some brief thoughts:

    When you start the cd, you are greeted with a menu not unlike that of Ubuntu. Then comes that splash image for the program. Included is a warning thats its BETA software.

    Next the comes the screen (as from the screenshot). I selected Partition to Image. First it prompted me for the source disk, then source partition. I then selected a name for the file and selected the compression level. You can choose between no, low, or high compression. I underestimated its speed and selected high. Not wanting to wait hours (or however long it would take) I rebooted the computer; risky but Im hoping nothing bad came of it.
