    I thought this tool downloaded and ran once automatically in the background and only showed if it detected something. I didn't know you could run it manually.

    I just wanted to image the computer. I did make a rescue CD with Macrium. With the PE version you can run image from CD if you wish. I was just curious and only have had experience with Aronis.
