t is not a good idea to create an image on the same disk that you are imaging
I agree with kado. Currently I use Macrium and Easus ToDo image backups. Before either of those I bought Paragon. Every time I tried that "backup capsule" scheme in Vista or later I had problems with my partition table. In fact, what fixed it was I did the Macrium trial. When I restored to test it, it asked if I wanted to copy the MBR from backup. I clicked Yes. My partition table was fixed.
NTFS Vista and later is slightly different than NTFS on XP. I gave up waiting for Paragon to get it right. Even if it did work, many nasty malwares know how to scotch your system so it won't boot. The backup capsule is a convenience if yoiu do frequent tests and restores. It's not good for malware or disk failure recovery.
But now with eSata and USB 3.0 docking stations, the restore from an external drive can be as fast or faster. Reading from the backup capsule then writing to the partition being restored thrashes the disk in most cases. A read from a USB 3.0 drive in a docking station can be much faster. There's no real need for the backup capsule. (Of course now with the price bubble buying internal drives to stick in docking stations is not as economical as a few months ago. But if you have the drives already you are golden.)
