I was wondering about imaging programs as I have been using free Macrium Reflect for a decade now but the last image was 1 hour and the verification 25 minutes. It used to be about 30 minutes for both with Linux and the earlier versions.
I just imaged with Macrium Reflect ver 6 and it took 1 hour 25 minutes to image and verify. It seems with ver 6 WinPE it takes a lot longer than with the previous versions where I used Linux - 15 minutes for the image and 10 to verify. I have no photos, videos or music.
It is quite obvious when you surf that others feel the same way. A friend mentioned Aomei + I was curious to see if it is wise to convert due to speed.
I think the native program is too limited and also slow. If anyone has a moment please let me know which you went with and if Macrium ver. 6 is slow for you also.
I was also wondering if one needs WinPE at all. It seems to be important but higher level users could explain that issue.
Perhaps it is required for Win 10 x 64 which I run.
I wonder if a earlier ver. could still image 10 and recover with Linux for lower level people like me.
