    Unreliable enough, from various threads I have seen posted about it, that I would not trust it to safeguard any data that I was not willing to lose anyway.

    I use it all the time to swap images on my test machine, 'System Two' below, so I think I can speak with some experience. It is reliable when you stay within its limitations, unfortunately there's no real documentation as to what those limits are - I've had to find out by trial and error.

    A restore is 100% reliable. What 'breaks' is its ability to recognise an image that could be restored. Ways to break it include moving and/or renaming the images - apparently innocuous actions that some may take to try and preserve multiple versions of the system images. It only works well if you don't try to be too 'clever' with it, don't try to do things it wasn't designed for - for that you need Macrium
