    Hi, good question.. disk imaging is so valuable for preserving your system, your sanity, letting you sleep at night and saving you time in recovery without seeking technical assistance (which may not always help!).

    Also allows you to replace your disk/SSD relatively easily.

    I've used Acronis TI, O&O disk image, Easeus ToDo Workstation, Aomei Backupper. I've briefly looked at Macrium Reflect.

    Acronis TI was great- many years ago. Now it's bloated.

    Presently I use Aomei Backupper, which for some years has been very reliable, but its error messages on elementary situations (e.g. storage medium not allocated expected drive letter) are useless. (Easy to avoid the problem though). So great so long as you know its minor quirks.

    Support is quite responsive, although the English translation is comprehensible, but rather non-native at times.

    Macrium Reflect is said to be the most dependable e.g. with SSD and GPT disk configurations. I'll be finding out how Aomei fares with this in a couple of weeks with my new laptop.

    Considering the free versions of these two, Macrium free does not offer incremental imaging, Aomei does.
    Macrium has a much more 'geeky' interface.

    There's a range of other features one might consider, like combining incremental images, restoration to dissimilar hardware, etc etc - depends what's important to you.

    Expect a disk image program to enable you to mount the image and extract files.

    Speed? Image size? Much of a muchness.

    thanks
    quick question, just to confirm. if I did a free upgrade from win 7 and want to reinstall windows 10, it will detect my key automatically if there were no hardware changes, right?
    now the xbox program isn't launching.
