    Hi there
    another vote here for Macrium (for imaging).

    I don't like software that nags you to GO Pro i.e PAY (minitool / easus to do and others) . For partitioning things I use GPARTED.

    For Disk cloning I still prefer booting up a Live linux distro or using a VM and booting from the iso image, attaching the relevant devices to the VM and then using the built in dd command - never a problem with needing to format anything or convert to gpt or whatever -- also file systems don't matter.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    Paul,

    You have absolutely no evidence for this statement and I think you should delete it.

    Among others. This poll by Kari is almost 5 years old, but does show a multi-member response, which is up to the individual reader to interpret as they see fit for their purpose.

    It's not very scientific, agree.

    btw, which one do you recommend, Denis @Try3?

    Never said it did, Denis. Only an example of the same subject is discussed over and over for years and years. There never will be a right or wrong answer. Just opinions and choices and preferences. Kinda hard to be scientific when you're looking for the current "hip" software.

    Dick,

    Yes, you did. You said that it showed a "trend".

    Yes, and this time all I asked for was the removal of false information.

    Paul,

    Great. I say pretty much the same thing myself whenever I suggest Macrium Reflect.
    - Unlike you, I don't keep separate files written up. I just copy, paste & tailor from old posts such as my ditty - file backup vs imaging, Win10 imaging deprecated, Macrium Reflect, backup drivers - TenForums
