You only appreciate images I think when you first recover using one.
Now, you are scaring me...

Is there one that you'd trust 100%? Ghost had never let me down back in the days I've used to work with it...

Well, I can understand that...

The Macrium Reflect is simply no for my system. While it did create an image of the "C" drive; however, it failed to create the Linux rescue disc. In one of my CD/DVD burners it didn't like any of the CDs or DVDs, while in the other drive, Reflect seemingly did finish but nothing was written to the CD.

Oh Well, Ghost it is...

The question is, will the license become invalid if and when the image is restored to new drive? Like the Windows 7, Office 2010, Visio, etc? While I still have one or two license keys for them, I'd hate to use them up unless I'd have to.

You shouldn't have any problem with licences even on a replacement disk. I'm not sure you would even have to reactivate.
