Windows 7: The Race: Acronis vs Shadowprotect vs Paragon

18 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
The Race: Acronis vs Shadowprotect vs Paragon

Now that I have the WinPE based Recovery disks for Acronis TIH 2011, Paragon HD Manager Suite 2010, and ShadowProtect Desktop v4, I decided to run a quick test to determine the image size and time taken to create the image yesterday night.

Used space in the System partition to be imaged: 40.7 GB

1. Before taking the image, the system partition was cleaned with CCleaner and Glary
Utilities. Registry was cleaned and optimized with Glary Utilities. The system
partition was then defragmented with Perfect Disk 11.Used Space 40.7 GB.

2. All the imaging was done booting with the WinPE ISOs on the Multiboot pendrive
and writing to another partition in the same RAID 0 drive with the system partition.
Usually I copy the image to an external drive later.

3. Acronis Imaging had to be timed manually since it only indicates time remaining
to completion which keeps adjusting as the imaging progresses. Shadowprotect and
Paragon indicate the exact time taken at the end while the time to completion is
also indicated accurately during the progress.

4. The default normal compression used for all the three imaging.
