Free Backup Software for your HD

Hi,

I have found a nice deals.

Western Digital offers free version of Acronis True Image - to use this you have to have WD hard drive:
Quote:
Acronis True Image WD Edition is available for installing and launching only when a Western Digital HDD is connected.
Screens in attach.

more info and download:
WD Support

If you don't have WD HD, don't worry. Seagate offers also similar software (Disk Wizard) available here:
DiscWizard | Seagate

If you have Maxtor HD, MaxBlast is available here:
Link to .exe file: http://www.seagate.com/support/maxbl...stSetup.en.exe


HTH,

Wasn't this version with problem restoring the image in W7?

I use v12 without problems.

The Maxtor Imaging program works also on Seagates (now that they are the same company).

Great find Creer.

Anyone used Seagate and WD versions?

Are they the same version of Acronis?

Have been using Seagates version, backed up and moved Win7 from eSATA external HD to internal HD (installed win7 on the internal then restored with Seagate/Acronis). Everything worked, no problems.

The Maxblast 5 and Seagate Disk Wizard work ok on my 7 x64.

The WD looks to be the version allegedly giving trouble on 7.

Macrium Reflect Free is much better than any of those.

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

It is more efficient - smaller, faster , and allows scheduling as well as mounting to extract individual files.

It works with all makes of drives - and works perfectly on 7 x64.

SIW2,

Do you know for a fact if Macrium backs up the MBR/Boot Sector stuff?

Yes - you can choose if you want to restore the mbr with each image restore - of course, the bootsector is restored everytime as it is inside the partition.
