Excellent deal for O&O DiskImage 5.5 Professional at $14.99
I've used this version a number times to restore system images - never failed once

Thanks for the info tn_dang and thanks NigelH for the reccomendation

Wow, it's a 600MB download -I thought Acronis was big- and at 130KB a second - I guess they're busy today! (it's a holiday today here too)

The download you mentioned is an older version (5.5.120), I downloaded it too after buying and using the download link in the email.

Go to the O&O website and download version 5.6.18

How are you supposed to restore with this?
They talk about a "Start CD" but it doesnt seem to be one you can make yourself - it was a bargain but without this it's pretty useless.
Have I missed out on something?

Help file says:

Note: The Start CD, designed for running O&O DiskImage without an operating system and for restoring a system
partition, is not included in the Special Edition.

Anyone know was this a "special" edition?

Thanks....

as usual, yes, I missed out on something embarassed

The download you mentioned is an older version (5.5.120), I downloaded it too after buying and using the download link in the email.

Go to the O&O website and download version 5.6.18

I did this but the WinPE capability is not included in the trial, doh!

You will (apparently) also need to download WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit) from microsoft, which weighs in a hefty 1.7 GB iso. Getting goodish download speeds anyways...

I gotta say as well:
Best customer service in a while from O&O, very fast & helpful  thumbs up thumbs up

Anyone actually tested this i.e. used it to restore an image?

There appears to be a new version out #6.
    -  I couldnt find an upgrade price,
    -  I couldnt find a list of what's (hopefully) improved
    + it's only €29 including 19% VAT

I wouldnt stick with this though unless I knew there were going to be improvements to the interface. Initially I thought it was better than Acronis, but no, it's not. They both only really cater for the scheduled job - a lot of us dont want to schedule jobs, that's when the GUI becomes a PIA...

A quick search turns up the code upsoft2011
Knocks off 20% (well, USD anyway)

Hi Morten, we decided to abandon the upgrade prices and lowered the price of O&O DiskImage 6 from USD 49.95 to 29.00. So the price of O&O DiskImage 6 is now actually lower than the price of the old upgrade version (which was USD 29.95).

thanks Nigel thumbs up

at the end of the day what's important is if it works (sorry I missed your earlier post)
And true, it is very cheap at 29 $/€
