Due to the behaviour of Backup and Restore in earlier versions, I thoroughly tested the Win 7 version thereof. I am very pleased and satisfied. Yes, I did the full restore, I did the data restore, I extracted files from the vhd. Tried out all of the features.

My experience has been that Win 7 Backup and Restore is rock solid. I have stopped using all other products for backing up and restoring. There are so many features of Win7 that work for the first time with MS. Win7 rocks.

Thanks karlsnooks for the review. I think I may try it out again.

Yep, thanks for that, you've given me more confidence to give Win7 B&R a closer look.

Some boards, will always boot the OS first, regrdless of whether you set it to boot from CD 1st or not.
If you board is one like this, you just need to switch back to IDE Mode, Boot from the disc & do the restore. Shutdown and switch backk to AHCI Mode.

I can successfully get the system to attempt to boot both Macrium and Paragon's rescue CD's but sadly neither load to the point where they become operational.

My BIOS does have the AHCI feature but my SATA drive is configured in IDE mode by default.

I'm currently getting some great help with the creation of a custom Win7PE disk to include both Paragon BR10 and PM10 over on another forum, which seems very promising. It's here if anyone else is interested or is in the same position as me. (I think the person responsible for all the hard work may well be a regular here too).

It would be great to have the choice of being able to use both Win7 BR and Paragon BR10 successfully, if required.

I use Acronis TI 2010, and it works well...after having to install a fix that is known to be an issue on certain machines...if you are interested in trying it out, although your concerns about Acronis' having deep hooks into the OS are correct, their removal tool, which was posted previously here works just fine.

Having said that, I must tell you that although Acronis gives you a much richer palette of options, Windows 7 Image/Backup & Restore works exceedingly well! The only reason that I opted to go with ATI 2010 is that my version of Win 7 (Home Premium) does not support backing up to network drives (damn!).

I did in fact have to re-image my drive C: partition, and it did so without so much as a hiccup, with Win 7's back up.

I was in the same sort of problem few days ago then one of my friend suggested me stellar phoenix. The software was really useful it worked fine with Windows 7 and the imaging feature of that software was quite amazing it created the image of the data with in no time, I used the boot cd stellar phoenix data recovery software to recover my data, on the site I found CD/DVD data recovery software too.
