    I think you will find many preferences.

    I would Vote for Macrium reflect. If you are automating your backups (running unattended), their paid version is really nice. This program is quite simple and does not have a huge number of features but it is easy to set up and "just works" over and over again.

    If you are using imaging on a schedule you will have to figure out a good way to manage old backups or you will run into disk space problems fairly quickly.....

    Dave,
    Hello.. I have not used EASEUS ...but have had experience reading posts from users. When comparing ( what i have read) ... I would place my vote for Macrium Reflect Free.. I have used this (just today) to backup XP-Pro, Vista Home Premium, Windows "7" - 32 and 64 with validation ... No problems ... and i have "mounted" and checked each Image .. I also use Acronis True Image 2010 V 7046 and alternate between them both ... I have had PC issues that have even rendered Acronis True Image helpless... Glad that i had another choice (Macrium Reflect) to get me "out of the weeds"... Regards Fred
