Does Win Toolkit (portable) = Macrium ?

Does Win Toolkit (portable) come with bundled ware

Is it an Imaging program similar to free Macrium ?
- I cannot find a lot about it other than sales spiel at Major Geeks and developers page
- Softpedia download page ... enough said about Softpedia !

I thought I would ask here first before wasting an hour or four only to discover Win Toolkit is not a goer !
- what concerns me is auto updating of drivers which is not always a good idea (in my experience)

I would appreciate any thoughts

That's not an imaging program like Macrium, it's for creating custom ISO installation files and images for sysprep installation, etc.

I don't know if it has anything bundled with it or not.

It's basically a tool to create tailor made installation ISO's.

Used in corporate environments to setup up multiple PCs ?

It would definitely be useful in those environments, some other uses would be to create an install ISO that has all the updates already installed.

IT repair guys/gals. Did you want to do something or was it just something you ran across?

I ran across it in a Gizmo's newsletter.
It is too easy to waste hours on downloads, VirusTotal, installing, testing, playing ... etc
... too often, several hours

I don't need it now you have explained it more clearly
- free Macrium will do me

Thanks for your help

You're welcome, it looks handy if you need or want to play around.

I don't have the time either.
