    I've used it and it's working fine for me. The images work flawlessly.
    Hello chev65!
    Wonderful news, thanks! Very glad to hear that and also that it worked well for you! Did you use the Disk?

    Do you mean the recovery disk they recommend to make?

    You can just use the original Windows 8 CP disk to get into the Advanced Recovery Options. It's easy to restore from an image as long as you have the CD.

    I have another drive partitioned with an original image on one partition and a weekly updated image on the other.

    I'm hoping they have an updated version of file recovery for the final Windows 8.
