    Yes, good.

    Did you try it?

    Works great for me.

    I'm trying it out today. I like to have a disk imager program for some things at work, but most of the apps (Macrium included) are only free for personal use.

    AOMEI is also free for commercial use...And it works with Server 2008/2012...which is quite nice for some uses.

    I'm comparing some backup times and sizes between Macrium 5, Acronis 2010 and AOMEI today. Thus far, Acronis and AOEMI seem in the same ballpark on the time front. I didn't break out the stopwatch, but they were in the 5-8 minute range. On the test I ran with default compression, the AOMEI backup came in at 22,047,348 and the Acronis Backup was 22,931,425...while Macrium came in at 21,565,185.

    I didn't check speed and compression - they seemed fine. Great that it is free, has a simple interface, and makes pe without waik/wadk.

    I'm using this software at work now and it hasn't let me down yet. It's free, even for commercial use. It can be scheduled and it can do file and folder backups as well as images. And it can do diferential and incremental backups. And it's nice to be able to easily make the Windows PE disk without having to download and install the WAIK.

    This is now the software that I recommend to friends who need to make an image.

    They are just about to release a new version of Partition Assistant , so the current Pro is available on GOTD

    Giveaway of the Day - free licensed software daily. AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional Edition 5.1 - AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional Edition is an award-winning disk partition manager now bundled with Dynamic Disk Manager Pro.

    Only for about another hour.

8.1 installed on SSD, Easeus backup doesn't see my HDD any more, so I can't make an image of it. It only sees the C drive and my external hard drive, but not the internal HDD (Hitachi 500 GB) that I use as a second drive for storing personal data. I tried with Macrium Reflect, and same problem.
