    I found that in W7 days.
    For Seven I used Windows own imaging tool. I was always reliable for me(sometimes I think I'm the only one it worked for, by most posts read). I only started using Macrium Reflect when I bought my Windows 8.1 desktop, because it was the most recommended imager on Eight Forums.

    I used MR than too but also used PowerIso to make one iso of whole partition/disk before MR.

    Hi,

    Something else that some may not be aware of is that you can also let MR convert your back up image into a virtual disk (VHD) ?

    Cheers,

    I used to use it too. It always worked ok and a couple times I needed image restored fine. My only criticism is it was very slow to actually take an image whereas macrium seems extremely rapid. I've never had a situation yet where I needed to restore a macrium image! So I don't know how well it works

    The Win7 one was slow because the CPU priority was set to background(slow) where as Reflect is set to High(most or fastest). You may have noticed this while it's creating the Volume Shadow Copy snapshot, many programs respond slower, and take more time than usual to react.

    Guess that explains it. I always used to just leave the PC alone during an image. I didn't consider that was the reason why the Windows one used to take about 4 hours and macrium less than an hour (roughly 400-500 gb images). It's a shame on the Windows one you couldn't adjust the priority to be faster. I still keep an older Windows 7 style 10586 image on my USB drive along with the more recent macrium ones (post anniversary update) just in case one refuses to restore should something go wonky.

    i am very pleased to of found macrium though although I suppose the one thing am not so keen on is whenever there is an update I get the impression (if I understood right) that a new rescue/bootable cd or USB needs creating each time which is a slight nuisance and threatens to exhaust my CD-R supply! But I guess that's a small price to pay for being backed up

    Not every update needs one, but ones where the PE environment has been updated. Still it is a good idea to update, just incase they forgot to mention it in the changelog, plus it's also good to update the boot option if you installed it.

    Also you can set the priority & affinity using task manager, although I cannot remember if that was possible in Win7:

    Every time I make new rescue disk it offers and downloads newest WinPE.

    For something as critical and lifesaving as your backup software, it is well worth the time and effort to keep it up to date. Including any removable/bootable media, and any rescue boot menu options. Pertains to Macrium or any other 3rd party software you choose.
