    Windows 10 Pro x64

    My trial restore took about 9 minutes - the compressed image was about 40GB. Still very quick. I found Paragon Hard Disk Manager took about 20% longer to make the image and about 20% less to do the restore than Reflect. Both work very well.

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1703 (15063.502)

    I have been using Macrium for a while now and have always found it valuable. I will be making a backup of this
    install of Win 10 when I have finished making sure it is ok and then save it to another drive where I have my
    images of Vista, Win 7, Server 2012. Great programme and would suggest to anyone.

    Windows 10

    Something of note when comparing Macrium Free to the Built in imaging tool is that Macrium has the option of verifying the image and Windows apparently want you to just trust it.. Macrium's interface is easy to understand and has more options available in case you want to clone SSD from HDD, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you cannot restore an image made with the Windows tool to a HDD drive of smaller size. Like if you move from a 1TB HDD to a 500GB SSD.
