Hiya,

I currently use Acronis True Image 2010 and do like it but I thought it was time to update to make sure I could handle all new big HDDs etc
I use it mainly to backup clients HDDs when reinstalling Windows, so I take the HDD out of their PC hook it up to my PC and do the backup then afterwards mount the image to copy the files out.
One thing I do not like is that whenever I do a backup or restore my PC goes so slow its hardly usable (E6750 o/c to 3.5GHz)
I downloaded the trial version of ATI 2013 but that has a few annoying features like not able to set a default backup location and get it to remember and its even slower now.

Cut a long story short any recommendations?
Must support
- large drives
- be able to mount images as drives
- be as quick as possible

Thanks

I have been and still am using Acronis, why don't you just "boot" from Acronis recovery cd (you will have to burn it from your system) then run back=up and create a system image on the systems own hard drive you can also make a image on a USB drive also, depending on the amount of programs installed it will take between 6.5 and 12 gigs of space using the maximum compression settings.

I know I can use the recvery CD, but for various reasons I dont want to.

I have updated to an i5-3570K and it runs better now, but think I am going to go back to ATI 2010
