    I use SyncBack SE for regular selective backup. I like it since it is very configurable, more than anything else I've seen. That said, I do use Macrium Reflect Free to create images of initial system from the factory, after install and configurations of the basics, and after more complete configuration.

    ...Same as Superfly. If I win, I would give to any member that has a need for Home version.
    Macrium...'nuff gimme,gimme,gimme! LOL

    Seriously, Macrium is some of the finest *free* software I have ever used. I would be lost without it. :)

    Ok. I suppose everyone(almost at least) knows I use Macrium Reflect, as the one of the first things I did, when I joined Ten Forums, coming from Eight Forums, is start the Macrium Update thread.
    Solved New Macrium Reflect Update - Windows 10 Forums
    My join date: 28-Feb_2015
    Thread started: 10 Mar 2015

    I use the free version of Macrium and like others I prefer to just make a full back up.
    I have a monthly set for the 3rd Saturday in the month, just right between Patch Tuesday's, in case I need to roll back.
    but I also have the definition set as a desktop shortcut, to run if I have had a major or a lot of 3rd party software updates.

    I like to try and test stuff on my PC, usually having to do with theming or mucking around knee deep in the registry, and sometimes things get broken. the same with installing a new driver, you know SH's.
    So I think the Boot Menu Option is one of the most important things for me, about Macrium.
    It is much faster than running from a SSD, than from a thumbdrive, as I have a Samsung 850 Pro.

    I use Macrium free for two reasons:
    1. It works.
    2. "Free"

    Hi Kari,

    I unashamedly recommend Macrium Reflect to any users. It is the only tool I know that successfully backs up and restore imagres on 32bit uefi tablets and i have tested many other programs.

    AOMEI and Macrium Reflect are my top choice.

    My choice would be EaseUS Todo Backup Free because I am familiar with the program and I have confidence in it.

    I know that my hard drive will eventually die of old age and accept that but what I will not tolerate is a dirty drive so I check it regularly.
