    "Well-written app, lots of useful features for imaging."

    February 26, 2011   |   By riprap1951

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 4.2.4

    Pros

    I've used Active@DiskImage on 20-30 occasions, including backing-up & restoring disks when changing out RAID drives, upgrading hard drives, etc. In my opinion it's reliable, easy to use, & loaded with intuitive features. Boot disc is nice, too.

    Cons

    NOTE: For those people who split up their hd's into partitions: I don't think the app has the capability to restore a specific partition to a specific partition on a different drive. It's designed to overwrite what's on the destination disk, period.

    Summary

    I think the app is an excellent value for the money, and would recommend it to a friend.

    "Win2008 Server was restored in 12 minutes"

    September 08, 2009   |   By somik11

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3.2.6

    Pros

    Emergency boot CD creation is disabled in trial version

    Cons

    Fast speed & realistic pricing structure

    Summary

    I would just like to say that I am very impressed by Active@ line of products. Active@ Disk Image and Active@ Boot Disk are excellent softwares that allow me to recover my OS install from an image within a matter of minutes. Personally, I find these programs much more reliable and effective than the leading brand imaging software. Your programs are also much more light-weight and aren't plagued by the high failure-rate of the leading brand.

    "It will image OK but the restored image will not boot"

    August 24, 2009   |   By fess99fess

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3.2.6

    Pros

    It is easy to install.

    Cons

    What good is an image if it will not boot? Go ahead, ask tech support if the restored image will boot. They give a vague answer about facilitating solutions but do not say it will boot.

    Summary

    The difference between this software and Acronis True Image is that Acronis will image your hard drive and when you restore it will boot into Windows, whatever version you imaged..

    "Disappointed"

    August 19, 2009   |   By rrf100

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3.2.6

    Pros

    Simple to use.

    Cons

    My backup folders have been missing the image, thus useless. Also, although I set it up to keep only 1 copy, it keeps all the backups it makes.

    Summary

    This software is not ready to use.

    "It's One of the Best I Have Tried . . ."

    December 06, 2008   |   By shodan816

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3.1 build 018

    Pros

    I've tested several disk imaging utilities and would have to rate this one on top. Considering ease of use, ability to restore an entire system, etc., this one really deserves your attention.

    Cons

    Compared to some other utilities in this category, the price is a bit steep. I would think $20 or $25 would be much more reasonable.

    Summary

    Highly recommend this program for complete system backup, IF you can afford it.

    "It did the trick..."

    November 20, 2008   |   By PinnacleAdmin

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3.1 build 013

    Pros

    I liked the GUI and it worked well... plus it's fully functional for a trial period, so I managed to fix my disk for free! Thanks!

    Cons

    I wish it had some partition management of it's own, since it just opens the Windows "Disk Management" utility which was already giving me trouble so I needed to fix my partitions then I could use this to copy my disk.

    Summary

    Hey, it worked so I'm happy.

    "Active@ Disk Image 3"

    March 06, 2008   |   By AmbientalSounds

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3.1 build 001

    Pros

    Active@ Disk Image does a fine job creating a disk image and the backup ran smoothly and the restored data worked perfectly.

    - Very easy to use

    - Fast restore

    Cons

    - You cannot create an incremental image

    - Limited options/settings

    Even if Acronis True Image Home is better you could consider Active@ Disk Image as an alternative. Also the price is with 10 $ cheaper than Acronis :)

    "No other product offering as much as Disk Image do. "

    January 11, 2008   |   By T88_Ilia

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3 build 093

    Pros

    What an awesome product! I couldn't be happier.

    I recently (finally) upgraded mt system from 98se to XP, and didn't want to continue using the old Powerquest Drive Image from 95. Drive Image 7 wouldn't run, and Norton suggested (of course) that I buy Ghost 12 for $70.00, which required .NET framwork and wouldn't create an ISO boot CD on a CD-RW.

    I found your product via Google searching for alternatives.

    It was flawless during install, and was easy to create a boot CD and setup. I had to switch to boot from the CD to image my C: drive, and it worked perfectly!

    Cons

    Documentation may be more friendly.

    "Not a true evaluation version - no possibility for restore"

    January 06, 2008   |   By DrGerryD

    Version: Active@ Disk Image 3 build 091

    Pros

    The GUI looks ok - is reasonably simple to follow without having to read the instruction manual first

    Cons

    The evaluation version is not acceptable. It is not possible to test the restore capability unless you pay for the software first - and that is not the point of evaluation.
