I currently use Drive Cloner Rx because of compatibility with Rollback, but before that I used Macrium Reflect.

I couldn't install Drive Cloner on Win 10, no matter what trick I tried. Use Macrium now, it's probably the best. GUI isn't the best. I have used Acronis, Loved AX64 Time Machine when Isso was doing it, the other people ruined it. O&O is good too. Easeus wasn't reliable for me.

You may try EASEUS Todo Home Backup, the program itself can create system image within certain time.

Necessary tools are also included.


Anyways any product will do as long you can revert any changes without issues on the system image. ;)

In post #12 @Evjl's Rain already mentioned it's to be avoided

What's your experience with this product? Is it reliable to use?

Thanks

On my old PC I used Acronis True Image WD Edition (this time it is Western Digital not Windows Defender :p).
Now I'm using Macrium free for OS images, and I think it is one of the most reliable backup engine.
It has saved me from many situations mainly due to tons of software tests that have made unstable the system :D

I know I was the one to put up EaseUs but I think I should not have. I was a paying customer of this software and after a crash I went to restore with EaseUs and all I got on reboot with a message EaseUs Todo is not running. So in went the Windows 7 installation disks and back to square one. On reflection I also would advise members not to use this software. Sorry guys. :oops:;)

It was an honest contribution, as always, really no worries my friend :)

I think Drive Cloners does have a bootable disk of some kind. I know I tried a restore so it had to have something. But the way it identified disk was totally unacceptable. Remember when you NEED to do a restore you are going to be under stress. That is a time you need a product you can trust.

@HarborFront: Oh I've overlooked on the post, well I cannot say either how EASEUS performed through restoration process cause myself never tested to proceed on that operation.

For the meantime, I use the Lenovo's recovery tools instead since through theory that a specific design system should run flawlessly.

I second that!
I tried most of Back Up/Imaging solutions (e.g. Paragon, EASEUS, AOMEI, Drive Snapshot, Acronis, Image for Windows etc.)
I found a piece of mind with Macrium Reflect. ;)

I am a long time Shadowprotect user. I private beta tested for them for 5 years. But they are going in a different direction now. For the private user Macrium Reflect is now a far superior product. Especially if you do frequent imaging and restores

Acronis does a pretty good job if you image from recovery environment. But the desktop install is a bloated goat. 20% about imaging and the rest an effort to sell you more services.
