Gave it a try for the first time today on my Windows 8 PC. Really impressed with speed, even on compression mode (medium).
Only dislike is the rescue disk require download ~1GB Microsoft tools, cost ~3GB of space storage only to create ~200MB iso file.

Found it recommended as the best free disk imaging software. Yes its a big download but we dont have 56k modems these days so it doesnt matter at all. The backup of 30GB was done in 5 minutes flat. I could mount the image file as a virtual drive. Quite impressed with it actually!!!

But imaging software should be able to image backup and image restore... not individual file restore. If that's the case, your better of just backing up your important files to cloud/external means, then backing up a ton of Windows/Program files you can't properly restore as a full system image, that's just a waste of space.

Edit: It looks like ti does full image restore and single file restore, see the chart here -

I don't think the Free version can restore individual files from the "virtual" drive. The freeware can only restore entire partition/drive. At least that was the previous policy.
