    Paragon Backup Recovery 10.

    Free Version here from paragon today - Made a backup image, then loaded it back onto another completely different PC using the Backup CD - worked perfectly. Windows XP -- Not bad, complete install in less than 10 minutes ( enough time to make a cuppa and come back out - done)

    Actually made the back up from the CD as well to an external Drive, wasn't installed on the OS.

    Edited: tried Macrium Reflect a few weeks back -- didn't like it.

    I just downloaded and installed same. It has good features.
    I have been using Seagate Disk Wizard which is also free up until now.

    Yep Seagates disk Wizard is good as well.

    I wanted to try Paragon Backup Recovery to make a recovery CD / Image for a Customer, that way it can go on DVD -- got a feeling its gonna be needed

    Made the Image from the bootable CD, quite surprised how "painless" it was, restoring was even easier - used the wizards and no problems.

    I was looking at the Paragon System Recovery - that way install the DVD, one click and its done ---- no pricing on the site - went looking, found a couple of references -- "Faints"
