Don't depend on it 2 stars by neilhmurphy983 Mar 27, 2016
Several things: I was using TDK DL DVDs. On a Win 7 Pro x64 Lenovo 400. The first time I tried to back up my system in preparation for Win X the second disk got an error. I think, this may have been due to my jumping the gun. In an effort to save time I pre-loaded the disk rather than clicking "OK". As I recall the formatting never occurred. I tried to review the log but I could find no error. The log lacked time stamps, so I couldn't tell the stat from the end. The second time I got all the way to disk six of six when an error occurred. It looked like the backup process was all but complete. Given the time that is consumed in this process one would think that there would be some sort of error recovery. For instance instead of just scrapping everything the program could have called for a new disk and carried on. One other nuisance is being prompted to format each disk. If I'm backing up my system and Reflect requires formatting the disk, just do it. You have my tacit permission. The free version doesn't back up files and when I used the paid version I found that I still need Reflect to view/restore them. show Review details
Excellent and free.... anything else? 5 stars by melen1717 Mar 21, 2016 (Read all my 11 reviews)
I was surprised when I discovered this software. It's does just about everything you would want for a back-up and it's really quite simple to set up. Automatic back-ups is a plus. And to think that it's FREE and is outrageous..... Give it a try. You won't regret it. Enjoy... show Review details
Great imaging and backup utility 5 stars by busybusy Mar 07, 2016 (Read all my 157 reviews)
This program was the only utility that I could back up a GPT partition a number of years back for a job. I tried over a dozen programs before finding this one and it worked perfectly. Since then they have improved upon it both from a file backup but for me imaging a whole drive for backup purposes and being able to restore that image quickly and easily. It has worked for my Win8 system and up without issue. Many Thanks! I give it Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, Use it, Rate it! show Review details
