First Look at Drive Backup 10

Familiar interface.

Support for ext4 and Apple fs. Also included p2v and p2p functions. Supports GUID Partition Table (GPT)


Takes a few secs. for the program to start as it enumerates drives and loads up.

Quick test:

Previously, I had compared DB9 and Macrium Reflect.

Imaging the same source to the same target.

Reflect took 6min 30 sec cpu usage around 22%.

DB9 took 13 mins cpu usage around 11%.

Twice as long - but to be fair cpu usage was half, so efficiency similar.

New test - DB10 vs Macrium Reflect. Same source and target for both apps. obviously.

Reflect took 6min 2 secs.

DB10 took 10 min 14 secs.

Not as fast as Reflect still - but a noticeable increase on DB9. No noticeable increase in cpu usage - perhaps up to 12% on average.

The help file is fun :

P2P Scenarios
Making system bootable on different hardware
Let’s assume you had to migrate to a new hardware platform. You just connected your system hard disk to the brand new PC and tried to start up the operating system - you do know for sure now that this operation had been doomed to failure from the very beginning. With our program you can easily tackle this naughty problem.

Is this better than Macrium Reflect?

LOL. You always ask that.

I should hope so - it is not quite so fast - but has lots of functions and features.

It is not free, though.

The best completely free always available to everyone app. is Macrium Free edition.

For those who want the extras a paid app. brings - this is excellent.
