This review is from: Perfect Image 12 Backup & Protect Suite (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Okay, let me try explain the standard backup proceedure, once you have this software running in a windows enviroment then you will need to create a bootable disk, most backup software that I have tested allows you to make a bootable cd.
Once you have created a bootable disk, it will become your lifeline when and if your harddisk becomes no longer bootable.
The idea behind the boot disk is that it acts just like a recovery console although its operation is basic and whose primary purpose is to start loading a previously saved disk image which is stored on DVD or a spare hard drive back onto your system hard drive, once all the DVD's have been loaded, your computer should then boot into windows following a reboot and walla system good.
I received 'Backup Protect' software yesterday and backed up my harddrive and then from the recovery console tried to restore my computer, well at least Acronis made past the first disk before "internal error" message, this software cant even recover the first 5 minutes of the stored backup! and thats the truth, to make sure I made a fresh backup copy today and same results.
If you read all the reviews here noone has actually tried to recover their backups for understandable reasons so noone has tested this software from start to finish, well I'm a tester by trade and I test things for their integrity.
So...., is there any backup/restore software out there that actually works?

Yes, there is and it's free to down load its called Macrium Reflect and it works.
