very nice

Thanks SIW2 this is something that I have been looking for I really like the preOS start-up that's my preferred choice but also made a bootable usb. It also supports the A8N-SLI old board which is hard to find a program that does that. Macrium just would not work for me and Acronis just is just to bulky and slow, but this is just right..

Hi there
Works great (The EASUS product -- I've had bad experience with Macrium in the past and I think it also uses the MS VSS (Volume shadowing system) which can cause a lot of grief if like me you keep uour OS partition fairly small and separate from your DATA partitions).

I've been using a really old version of acronis server for backup (V9) --had to change the name to TI.exe to overcome the "compatability error" message when running on W7. I never liked the later versions of Acronis.

I'm not to worried about USB 3 support yet --I'm sure it will come out with upgrades later.

I'll "stress test" this and then I'll change --BTW the stand alone boot disk doesn't have any problems with backing up W2K3 SERVER either.

Cheers
jimbo

In looking at the EaseUS backup software comparison, the only diff between Free and the $39 Workstation is a snapshot capability. I dunno what they mean by a "snapshot" but it sorta looks like Windows System Restore?

Is there an image mount capability i.e. allowing access to files in the image backup?

Program almost looks too good to be true.

P.S. I've had Acronis True Image since v1 and it seems they may finally have their act fully together with ATI Home 2010. Lots less "noise" about problems than in recent past versions. Now the noise level is up again with ATIH 2011...

Max:

Yes, you can navigate to individual files in the image.

I've switched to EaseUS and Macrium instead of Acronis and Macrium. We'll see how it goes.

I have not yet done a restore with EaseUS, but I did make a boot disc and was able to boot from it and access all drives as well as the image file.

Hi there
For Virtual mounting of ISO's I use Alcohol Free edition -- these will even mount nrg (Nero image) files when other virtual disk mounting software fails.

Download from here

Alcohol 52% FE - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

(I use this program a lot as well to mount Virtual DVD's cloned via AnyDVD to watch DVD's stored as ISO's on a HDD instead of carrying around DVD's).

Cheers

This is very impressive for a free app. Macrium is a little faster, but the features you get with free TODO are unbeatable.

Other imaging app. makers need to respond.

Seems like they are working on the USB 3.0 support. They claim on their forum that there "are too many different USB 3.0 drivers" to support them all. I though everything was rented from NEC? Even my SIIG card has NEC chip and drivers.

Edit: I tried the Linux boot CD. It came up and recognized my drives in the USB 3.0 Docks!! Yay!!! Now I have to try making a backup image. Good deal!!

Haven't made one for 32 bit yet.

Will get around to it when I can .

If you are using 32 bit win 7 - you are in luck - there will the option to include tons of stuff.

Not just macrium v5 , but also easeus TODO new free v3 will run beautifully, as well as apps. like paragon, partition wizard, Easeus partition master, easeus data recovery wizard, MT data recovery, etc.

Any requests as to the apps you want to have ion your pe3 media?
