    I have to admit the Manufacturer's Recovery Disk has saved me on one occasion when I'd taken my own backups, but I'd messed up the partitions. My fault and I could probably have done a better job of taking the backups, but the Recovery Disk was a *good* thing to have at that point.

    I personally always with OEM manufacturer's make the Recovery disc's &

    backup with Windows Backup,Norton Ghost, & Paragon once a week.
    Sorry about my lack of knowledge on this subject but when I had windows 7 I had no problem creating a bootable disc with Paragon products.
    Would windows backup be able to create a bootable disc and create a complete backup on my laptop or should I just go for Paragon 12 home?

    Paragon progs are excellent.

    What did you get for 22 quid ? Seems a good deal.

    More to the point - where did you get it from?

    I got Paragon Hard drive manager 12 suite but Backup & Recovery 12 home is the same price at £22.55 from More computers.com

    Thanks,

    That is a good deal for the Suite.

    I was involved in testing it. I am using Pro right now - most people will find the Suite does all they want.

    I have used Paragon for about the last 4 years. I find it slow to do an image copy sometimes 3 to 4 hrs but it has never failed me on a complete restore. Having said that I don't know how long Acronis or Norton would take.

    I used Paragon Free when I moved from XP to Windows 8. Although it allows selective restore (which is good), it took a long time, probably much longer than it would take to simply restore the whole partition.
