I like 2010 because I find it much faster to restore an image. Takes about 6-8 minutes, where as 11WD took around 15-20 minutes.
I also no longer get that screen after restoring image that comes up "Windows has shut down incorrectly" or something like that.
I do not like all the other added features it has. I find it quite bloated. All I need is a program that creates and restores an system image (which is what 11WD did).
I find creating an image is more complicated compared to 11, perhaps because I'm use to it.
I'm not looking to use this to back up my normal data, for that I use Second Copy.
So perhaps Acronis is a bit too bloated to use for just an OS image backup?
I think someone else mentioned a free .iso program that was good for OS backup... let me re-read this thread.
