Just to fill in on the functionality of Paragon's Drive Backup as mentioned in the review.
To make a backup of a complete disk one chooses the menu item "Hard Disk" One then has the option to make a copy of the hard disk to another hard disk, make a image of the hard disk to the same or another partion or disk (this image may be split into files of equal size for subsequent saving to CD or DVD media), or make an image of the hard disk directly to CD's or DVD's.
To browse a backup volume one right clicks on the archive in the lower panel and choose "Browse Archive". One can review or restore a partition or files by doing this.
I agree with the reviewer that this latter function is certainly not as user friendly as it could be. Also while I have not viewed Acronis Trueimage for a while I can imagine it is more user friendly than the Paragon product, especially for more inexperienced computer users. The ability to view backups just like you can view original files and folders is a very good idea.
