    "A very cost-efficient solution for server backups"

    August 17, 2010  |   By Glkdf

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.7 build 4708

    Pros

    Its license allows the user to run it on servers for the same price as for workstations.

    Cons

    15 days for tests is not enough.

    Summary

    We use the software to backup our business-critical servers. To our best knowledge, this is the only full-featured backup/restore program which license allows its user to backup/restore servers for the price of a workstation. Yet it has all features to perform any complex backup/restore task necessary for an enterprise server: backup to a network drive, a scheduler, scripting, mail notifications, backup sets, etc. And it's stable and reliable in work.

    "Good for netbooks"

    July 23, 2010  |   By jkhff

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.7 build 4708

    Pros

    Can create its startup disk and save image files on any removable media.

    Cons

    Found none so far.

    Summary

    I took advantage of their 15-day free test period to try it to backup/restore the system disk of my MSI Wind netbook. What I like most of all is that their startup version can start from almost anywhere, and you may save the image file on any removable device. I use a 32GB USB flash drive for the startup disk and image file of the system disk. No need to carry an external CD/DVD drive or hard drive anymore. Now I can restore my computer to its working condition anywhere and at any moment.

    "R-Drive Image 4.5"

    July 16, 2009  |   By philbarter

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.5 build 4502

    Pros

    Backed up nice (3 hours 74 gigs)

    Cons

    I can not restore unless I buy, what is the point of trial if it will not work????

    Summary

    I fell mislead and I'll toss my 5 copied dvd's before I buy this product!

    "Rock-solid performance, easy to use, can boot from CD"

    December 23, 2008  |   By OfficeTux

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.3

    Pros

    Generally a well constructed user interface. Initial menu is concise and easily understood. Can be run as an installed program under Windows or booted from an optionally created CD. The boot CD version supports mouse activity.

    Cons

    Some of the image creation options are not intuitively understood. Some context help for those options would be nice. Also, you must restore to a same sized partition as the original - which adds difficulty when using to migrate to a larger HD.

    Summary

    For those users that have experienced using the IBM mainframe product, DDR, this is the closest function I've found to that product. It seems rock-solid in execution (albeit sometimes appearing slower than I'd expect). I've been using it for close to a year and never had a software or logic failure.
    Before using this product, I attempted to use another "Ghost" program from a major supplier. It was neither as intuitive, nor as solid. I had failures that could have been catastrophic if I had depended upon it for accurate restoration.

    "Can't trust reviews"

    December 7, 2008  |   By royholcomb

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.3

    Pros

    I would download and test it except the fake reviews scare me away from this software.

    Cons

    If you have to post fake reviews of your own software then you must not have any faith in real reviews. Scares me!

    Summary

    I don't have the option for high speed internet in the area that I live in so when I research software it is already somewhat time consuming but when I have to also research the reviewers that just adds to the time I have to spend and lowers my faith in the star rating system.

    "Does NOT Run Properly on Windows NT"

    September 16, 2008  |   By mygeek911

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.3

    Pros

    The product works well on Server 2003 for one of my clients.

    Cons

    Even though the requirements list Windows NT, this software will not run properly on it. Don't make the mistake I did by purchasing it then attempting to get a refund after the install. The company refuses to refund whatsoever.

    Summary

    I made the purchase right off since I knew the product and had used it before on a Small Business Server 2003 server. If I had known it does NOT run properly on Windows NT, even though it appears to from the description, I wouldn't have been so eager to make the purchase.

    "My system crashed. R-Drive saved it flawlessly."

    September 6, 2008  |   By jjstapleton

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.3

    Pros

    Very simple to use and very reliable. Doesn't run one through the hoops, and gets down to business quickly.

    Cons

    The licensing of only being able to use it on one computer - for life - is a bit restrictive. I would also like to see a linux version.

    Summary

    Worked perfectly for me when I needed it the most. What more can one say? That's what it's designed to do.

    "good feature"

    August 15, 2008  |   By Ddmon

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.3

    Pros

    You may connect an image file as a logical disk, you do not need to restore the entire data on the disk if you need to copy only one file.

    "Did I run into a bug?"

    August 11, 2008  |   By sixthscroll

    Version: R-Drive Image 4.3

    Cons

    Trying to copy a Linux EXT2 FS CF card from a Windows based system. Ran into an error during duplication that said "Can not unlock" or something to that effect. I know it's not the disk or the drive, I've done the same with another program since then.
