"Cheap, but not good"

October 15, 2007  |  By Jane Q. Programmer

 |  Version: Image for Windows 1.64e

Pros

The price. I got quick, if unhelpful answers from customer service. Image files have to be good for something since one of the dowloadable utilities can read them.

Cons

The software seems to create images, but after two and a half days trying to get it to work, reading documentation and downloading every version and utility they have, I still cannot restore anything. This is a HUGE waste of time. There are lots of different little pieces you need to install and caveats to aborb. The knowledge base has critical error descriptions for days (such as, the make disk utility provided in your download does not work, but you can download a free DOS distribution from this other web site and combine the ISO with our program, then run restore in file mode instead of partition, etc., etc.).

The default option is to save to CD/DVD, which took 3 hours for 40GB of data. The restore took four hours then crashed on the fourth brand new DVD that had supposedly been "verified" by the separate burn utility - start over. So I saved to a USB drive. Then found that the Windows restore disk does not detect my drive at all. The Linux restore disk created by another utility boots then declares that the restore program is missing. The DOS restore disk detects the drive, but then does nothing instead of showing me the drive contents.

And there are plenty of totally obscure options in the GUI, and command line options, and config files that only the most hardcore geek could bear. Lots of dead ends to explore. Frustrating errors like stopping after one hour of backup saying the default cache size is too small. Then after I increase it, telling me it's too big (hint: it has to be "just right" -they just don't tell you what that is).

The tech support person told me that the different parts (less than 1MB combined) aren't integrated because many users have dial-up internet and pay by the minute (sic!). When I asked about the USB drive not being read, he just blamed my BIOS.

Steer clear at all costs.

"Fine Backup Product"

April 30, 2007  |  By invenit

 |  Version: Image for Windows 1.64e

Pros

My IBM IntelliStation Z Pro has a factory restore feature in a hidden partition--and it works--but it's a weekend chore to restore/update WinXP Pro after a factory install. So I started to look at third-party backup solutions last week. I ended up testing three: Ghost, True Image and TeraByte's Image for Windows (Image for DOS & Image for Linux is also included). Of the three, TeraByte's disk imaging software is amazing in my opinion and I registered my copy two days ago. For me, it is the easiest to understand and it works swell.

Cons

No problems here. One thing though: print out the documentation and give it a quick read before you do anything with the software. Frankly, the software is pretty easy to work but you still need to RTM.

"Great product from great company"

April 28, 2007  |  By jhencken

 |  Version: Image for Windows 1.64e

Pros

This is a simple product that works as designed. It produces fast, reliable backups, and is easy to use. Comes with a free DOS version, which is also terrific. The tech support for all TerabyteUnlimited products is the best I have experienced in my 30 years working with computers. Friendly, helpful, efficient, no attitude; and free updates for years. Highly recommended.

Cons

None.

"Does what it says."

December 19, 2006  |  By abhijit_net

 |  Version: Image for Windows 1.64e

Pros

Before this i tried Paragon to back one of my partition to HDD. It failed every time. I thought my partition is bad, and tried to backup other partition, again it failed.

This one did not fail at all, after backing up, it varified if anything was wrong, nothing went wrong and i had a backup of my C: on the DVD. I had a doubt if it could recover back. 2 days ago i got this nasty Spyware on my HDD, used Avast antivirus and AVG spyware scanner. Although they removed some trojans, i still used to get popups. Finally i thought i should format the C:. then i remembered that i have a backup. And i booted with the DVD and just pressed ENTER 2 times, and after 10 minutes 1 more ENTER. And after the restart, i was amazed. It did not damage anything, the OS on the D: was working as sweet as before, and the newly recovered c: was also working very sweetly ! No partition was damaged. Great program, nice work. Paragon is $50, this one is $27.

Cons

A lot more things can be added. But is great as it is.
