While some say AcronisTrueImage appears to have much praise on the planet for a backup program, it does have it's detractors -- I AM ONE.
I had used Acronis 10 Home for some time, but got errors during backup and restores because the scheduler and other parts clogged up my PC, causing it to hang, or wreck the image file I was trying to make or restore.
Macrium does not have these faults and works THE FASTEST I have seen in comparison to Acronis WD or Seagate products.
Macrium Reflect Image size is slightly bigger.
Macrium Reflect has Image File verify
The only real difference, besides the price of course, between Macrium and Acronis is that Acronis has a startup recovery manager (Macrium can make a Recovery Disk and is so a it's Revery Manager). I found that the Macrium recovery disk provided a more than adequate environment to perform the task required and was actually much better than Acronis's startup recovery manager.
While I know Windows Media Player is OK and many Mac Users out there drool over bloated Itunes and QuickTime, I found this player hard to figure out:
1. Import of file play lists OK, but had to much crap on the Display List forcing me to heavily modify it.
2. Podcast Crapola: Don't need configurations for features I DON'T need or want. Apple makes such a piss deal on a media file type it DIDN'T create. It's a video/audio file type, OK.
3. Help file Poor - No self-contained index
4. JRiver hounds you to upgrade to its PRO version which offers video encoding, Why? Use the software that came with your webcam for that.
5. Media Preview? Hey, ever hear of PAUSE and STOP buttons?
File info from internet was well done in completing missing info in files.
I like Spybot because it: works nicely, Is very thorough and updates frequently the spyware definitions frequently. Whereas, _I dislike_ it because: It should have one-button disk scan,
Setup for Default Definitions Server, Remove all setup files and folders after it is being removed, by not leaving its restore folder.
