Macrium Reflect Imaging

I use this Macrium Reflect to replace Acronis True Image for Windows 7 Drive Cloning.
Reason is that I encounter Archive Error during disk recovery when I am using Acronis True Image.

To compare with Macrium Reflect and Acronis True Image, Acronis True Image would run faster in terms of backup(1-2 minutes) compared to Macrium Reflect (11 minutes).
But for restore time they are similar.

Here are some tutorials on how to backup and install the image:

(Create Backup Image)
1. You need to create a bootable DVD for recovery
2. Select the C drive (2nd one, no need for the first Active section) and click Image this disk

(Restore Backup Image)
1. You need to press a key to enter the DVD options after inserting the bootable drive
2. The restoration progress is quite intuitive.
