After seeing your advertorial in PC magazine, I visited your web site and tested your drive image software, version 4.0. Every once in a while I try to test drive image software to see if *anyone* out there made things as easy as PowerQuest did in their 2002 version of Drive Image.
As you may know Symantec bought PowerQuest with the express purpose of killing PowerQuest's Drive Image because it was superior to Norton Ghost.
In any case, here's what PowerQuest's Drive Image 2002 does on my system and what no other software does. (I hope you accept my frank criticism): I partitioned my hard drive to C: (Windows XP) D:(Windows Millennium) and E:(where I keep all large programs installed as well as Drive Image files.)
If I can, I usually boot into either operating system to within seconds re-image the other. I start PowerQuest Drive Image 2002, and then this happens:
Restore Image > Finish > Yes > Yes
Four clicks (!) And in fraction of a second the operating system partition is being restored.
Why four clicks, because it retains the information on what to do from the last time it was used, allowing the user to do Restore Image > Finish > Yes > Yes.
It does the same for Creating the image files so they too can be created by simultaneously clicking on Next a couple of times.
*No other Drive Image software can do that.*
Also, Image creation restoration is done without rebooting. Why can PowerQiest Drive Image 2002 lock the drives and perform imaging without rebooting while others cannot, including your program?
Your program works under old Windows Operating systems, this is great, because I do not use Windows Me but it's convenient to reimage my Windows XP by simply rebooting into it to do so.
And I noticed a fine feature in your program where I can double click on the Drive Image file itself, then perform the Image Restore from there. This is an improvement over PowerQuest Drive Image 2002.
Now if you can just get your program to remember previously used settings and get it to be able to lock the drive without the need to reboot the system...
Either way, studying performance of PowerQuest Drive Image 2002 is the key to beating Symantec. Good luck.
