"Great For System Image Backups !"
Easy to use, once you get used to some of it's somewhat counter-intuitive aspects. Can clone your entire disk or make a system image that can be copied to an external drive or DVD using a user-determined compression rate. Using medium compression, an image that took Windows 7 x64 software 45 GB to create took only 35 GB with Macrium.
'Does not do incremental or differential backups, which are limited to the paid version. The interface can be a bit confusing at first, as it is both similar and different than other back-up and partitioning programs, so I'd strongly suggest making friends with it's online help tutorials.
Since I'm only interested in making backups to restore my OS in the event of a catastrophic event, this program is ideal. ( I make separate backups of files, etc.,using Win7's built in software.) I like the fact that you can back-up onto higher capacity DVD's as opposed to CD's (are you listening, EaseUS ?). I've never had a problem with the program, and the company seems genuinely interested in ongoing product improvement. I highly recommend it to all users.
