VMware have better hardware suport and some usefull tools but Vritual box is free while VMware Wokrstation is a bit expensive...

Guys I have a question regarding image restore and sorry in advance if it sounds stupid. Suppose I make a disk backup of my SSD using Macrium and save the image to an external HDD. Then I secure erase the SSD using Parted Magic. Then I use the bootable rescue disk created by Macrium to restore the disk image which I had created earlier on the external HDD. Will the restore process be successful or will the restore process fail since I had secure erased the SSD before attempting the Restore?

It will work. Why not? You can even restore it to completely different SSD too.

Acronis True Image is the one I use, I do incremental backups at system shut down or re-boot so any work I do is automatically backed up and is as current as possible. It is the only one that I know of they will do back ups like this on a triggered event like a system shutdown
