I just tried the Linux boot CD made with EaseUS Todo Free edition. To my pleasant surprise it recognized the drives in my SIIG USB 3.0 docks running off SIIG USB 3.0 PCIexpress card.
Even the new Macrium Reflect 5 Pro does not recognize my SIIG card.
I made one backup image after trying the boot CD. Doesn't have the options that Macrium has, but is much simpler. Backup My System doesn't ask any questions other than the folder to put the image. It backs up the partition you booted from. It does look like it may have some features Macrium doesn't like Clone to dissimilar hardware.
The main thing for me right now is avoiding messing around with putting backup images on USB 2.0 drives or using a USB 2.0 dock. I haven't tried the restore but Macrium restore from USB 2.0 on my systems copied off the source at about 22 MB/s. I'm sure USB 3.0 read will be much faster.
Also if anyone is interested, SIW2 poster on another forum has a utility program that makes a boot CD with a menu to make it easier to use restore type programs. You can take a look at this thread if you are curious:http://www.sevenforu...ram.html#post1533753
