I am using Macrium, and like it. What do you mean by reimage? Can you still make an image from Windows and then use it to restore?
What is wrong with the rescue disc?

The OP posted the issue with the rescue disc here:
Macrium Reflect

I don't know if it might be an issue with the PE version ... or something else ???

Thanks Dave. It would be nice to know if there are problems. I used Macrium about 3 times to resolve serious situations.

I never had any problems with the WinPE. That problem must be specific to the OP's system. The bigger problem is that they now want you to purchase V6.

AOMEI is not without problems either. I had a couple of problems with their products.

We'll see. I use AOMEI as my second option.
