Yeah, same here. Had "Drive Image" back in the day, loved it. Never liked "Ghost" all that much... Guess I gotta learn the new game...
People were talking about how 3rd party is not needed, use W7 or W8 built instead. Can't prove it by me. 1st time I ever try to use built in and it fails in a big way. There is only 55GB of stuff to back up on a 1000GB drive and the OS can't do it. Crazy!
With compression there should only be about 30GB of free space needed yet 1TB isn't enough!!
Shakes head, goes to bed...
