5.0 out of 5 stars An Imaging Program with Good Features 12 Jun. 2011
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have used a lot of imaging programs over the years and this is a good one. For those who are not familiar with disk imaging it is basically the ability to capture an entire physical disk in the format of a file. Typical uses in the IT industry is to make a base copy of an installation complete with settings, individual programmes etc. These are then applied to similar hardware so as to avoid the long drawn out process of swapping disks etc. Your own laptop or PC would have been installed in this way at the factory.

This programme allows you to take an image of your own kit as an insurance policy against a hard disk failure so that not only do you safeguard your data but all the programmes you have installed.

In the past, when I have taken these images, the kit needed to be booted from a CD as the OS could not be operational. This one can be run while the PC is in use. The snag for the average user is the time it takes to create the base image. On my laptop it took about one and a half hours. However when I think of a recent event where I had to reinstall an XP based laptop it is no contest. As XP is a very mature OS, there are literally hundreds of patches to go on the laptop even when the base OS etc is re-installed from the recovery partition. I had the laptop for two days while it caught up with hundreds of patches.

This is a good product which can convert its image file to VHD format (used by VMWare for example) and it also has a 64 bit version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Inexpensive System Backup 26 April 2011
By Andy_atGC TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My copy arrived steam-rollered flat thanks to a postman who insisted upon squeezing the package through a slim letterbox!

The box contains 1 sleeved CD with a serial number affixed (not to be lost), an instruction card with rather minimal information and a serial number for the optional FREE downloadable software - nothing more.

LapLink is a company that has been around for at least 25 years, was involved in data transfer from one PC to another from the outset and has now added drive backup to its range. Its products have generally been held in high esteem and a certain type of cable (although little used now) is still referred to as a Laplink cable whether of their manufacture or not.

The CD serves as the installation medium and also as an emergency Recovery Disk, should that be needed. Hence it is bootable; you may need to temporarily amend the boot priority via your machine's BIOS to make that possible. Most PC's are set to boot from the default hard drive and not any other. If you do not know to make such changes, information is not provided! Unless you know of someone who can assist, you may need to call Laplink's support line in the US for assistance, which could be rather costly, or by email which will be slower.

The program does not compare with other more expensive backup options that provide for scheduling, several different backup schemes, and the ability to limit a backup to a single directory or specific groups of files, and more. This does one thing only; it makes a copy of your system drive (usually C:) to another hard drive, ideally one that is external and can thus be stored with reasonable security and safety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its works ver ywell 28 May 2011
By RJP the Book Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having seen a friend loose years of familiy pictures and data due to having his computer stolen I though it was about time I backed all my stuff up. Along came Laplink Disk Image. It comes in a box but there is a disk and a quick start guide in it and no prpoper instructions book. However, using it is a doddle if you use the predefined back up menus so an instruction book is not really required unless you want to go deeper into the software - I just want a backup. I did a complete disk image of my main system to an external drive. It worked quite quickly, I thought it would have taken much longer but obviously things have moved on since I last used any back up software. After about an hour it finished my disk image. I decided to see if it had worked by transfering the image to a new drive which it did almost perfectly. Only one driver caused a problem but that was easy to solve with a quick update. I am now confident that if disaster strikes I have a good back up of my system. The software does its job well. I have not explored the custom options where you can exclude certain files and set up incremental backups as I am not that tidy! Since the first image back up I have done one other, again very smooth and quick. This hard drive I have left at my neighbours house, why you may ask ? well, if my PC is stolen I still have a drive in another location with all my pictures on which are not replaceable in any way. They are of holidays and the kids growing up and I would hate to loose them. Laplink Disk image is a must have if you value your data, it's easy to use and works well. I have no hessitation it recommending it as it is easy to use and when disaster strikes your data will be safe ready to load onto a new drive. Buy it!

By KWren HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
You can't be over-vigilant re backing up systems and data and this is where imaging software is a vital tool.

Disk Image installed swiftly for me and, following registration, launched a simple screen with options to make a complete image of my entire PC system, an image of one or more drives, an incremental image updating from an earlier image, cloning a drive or performing a restoration of an earlier image onto a new drive. When testing, I found DiskImage worked smoothly and quickly made an image of my 90GB of data in just over an hour and is ready for a restoration should disaster strike.

There are many imaging software packages available eg Acronis True Image but DiskImage is a little different and it goes further because it also offers 'PC Mover Image Assistant', an extra utility that lets you selectively restore programs, files or folders rather than copying an entire disk image onto the destination disk. This means it is possible to do a selective restoration without automatically overwriting data already on the destination drive - and hence losing it. It also means that a restoration can be tested to check that it works before risking deleting an entire operating system. The time when this utility could be most beneficial is when switching to a new computer (using the same or a later operating system) as it allows all data, programs and settings to be easily copied onto the new computer without having to laboriously reinstall software, register programs and set preferences, favourites etc. It does what it says - it moves whatever you select onto a new PC.

It is a very easy to use package for a beginner or more experienced user. Imaging software is an essential investment for anyone wanting to safeguard their system or transfer programs/data/settings to a new machine and at this price, it would be hard to find a product offering better value for money.
