We know what you think: "Another backup utility? I have seen too many of these already. You can't surprise me with another one. I've seen scheduled backups, remote backups, incremental backups and anything-else-backups." Ok, but how about a bootable backup? Surprised?
What do you do when your hard disk crashes or your computer simply won't start? You could restore your files from a backup copy. But how can you restore anything if you can't even boot your computer? It turns out to be a real problem. You need to boot up your computer in order to restore your files, but you need to restore your files in order to boot up your computer. Re-installing Windows from a CD, re-downloading and re-installing all the service packs and security patches via the Microsoft Windows Update system, re-setting all your preferences (and more) is a hard and time-consuming method.
