Does anyone know the difference between AlienRespawn, Acronis True Image and Windows Backup? Which is the best, and what are the advantages of each. Its a big question, but I would like to feel good about the backup I create to know that it can restore my computer. Thanks in advance for any input!
Only Acronis will create a Backup Image from outside the OS, and also the only one that will Restore an Image to a blank drive from outside the OS (aka ... bare metal restore).
If you search the forum, there was some good threads a while back about various backup/imaging programs.
