I have a (probably rather naive) question: With all these different back up programmes -- like Aomei, Macrum Reflect, and now iBeeSoft -- MUST you use the original programme that CREATED the backup in order to get the backup back?

I am concerned, because if one forgets which programme you used, and I have several at my call, it would seem you're never gonna get your stuff back, UNLESS you put into operation the original programme -- which you could have used several years ago, and may no longer have access to!

A definitive answer would be very useful, thanks!

Tranmontane,

>"I have a (probably rather naive) question: With all these different back up programmes -- like Aomei, Macrum Reflect, and now iBeeSoft -- MUST you use the original programme that CREATED the backup in order to get the backup back?"
As a general rule, yes, you do want to use the same program that created the backup, because each backup program may have its own format for how it stores the backed up files (or disk). Some backup programs merely create a simple ZIP file (directories/folders, same as in the source, only compressed), and in that case a program that can extract from a Zip file could be used to recover a file from the backup (e.g., 7zip). That may make you wonder why you need a backup program at all then, since the same Zip/Unzip utility could do all the work itself. That is true, and a lot of people do exactly that, only that the Backup program may have been easier to work with (made it easier to understand what to back up, set up scheduled backup operations to ensure you always have a good backup copy, etc.)

Other backup programs may use a Zip file format to store the data, but it might do it in a manner that it cannot be determined by the end user (using an Unzip utility), what to extract to get their original file back.

And there are other backup programs that store the archived data in a format that is propriety to their program. No other backup program can be used to restore files from the backup data.

Based on just these examples alone, you can see that you need to keep track of which program you created a backup with, so that you can use the same to restore files from the backup.

>"I am concerned, because if one forgets which programme you used, and I have several at my call, it would seem you're never going to get your stuff back, UNLESS you put into operation the original programme -- which you could have used several years ago, and may no longer have access to!"
Correct, and to focus on that last part, "which you could have used several years ago, and may no longer have access to!"
If that happens, then you truly could have a calamity on your hands. Having a backup from which you have no way or restoring data from could be a disaster if you really need to restore a file from it, but even worse, is the possibility of embarrassment if you share that information with others, whether it be a family member, close friend, associate, or a customer. they're never going to look at you the same way again, so never ever lose the original backup/restore program.

Always have a way of identifying the program that created the backup by naming the backup to include the backup program name so that you know what created it (easy to do if you save the backup in a folder that contains the original backup tool's name).

All of this explanation shows the importance of knowing what created a backup, and never losing it, but even this calamity may be solvable.

Should you ever lose the original program, there is a good chance that you can download a trial edition to restore data, or even purchase a license if you do like the program. There is not a guarantee this will work of course. There have been cases where the developer decided to create a different format to store the backup data in. They would do this with a transition period so that all users could switch over to the new format. Fine and dandy unless you miss that. Even then, their software may work with both formats, or the developer may be able to provide a recover tool that would work with the older format.

In one case, a backup program (Ocster) was sold to another developer (Ashampoo). Ashampoo did change the license format, and could have changed the backup file format. Ashampoo already had their own backup software. I do not recall the details of the Ocster-Ashampoo backup format itself changing, but you can see that it very easily could have. Suppose Ocster sold the rights to the Backup interface, but not the actual backup file format. Ashampoo would have adopted their own format. Everything would work out file, except in that odd case you mention, where years later, you need a program to restore from the old format.


>"A definitive answer would be very useful, thanks!"
I hope that will suffice.

Tranmontane, "MUST you use the original programme that CREATED the backup in order to get the backup back?"
Most of the times a newer version of the software will also read an old file/back-up.
I put often an Info.txt in the back-up-folder with info about the used back-up-program, also from wich PC/drive it is an back-up. And sometimes also the used program(installation-files) itself.
And in the name of the back-up-folder I often put the name of the used back-up-program.
Also if you did use an paid-program to back-up, the trial version will often restore it, without limitation. But to be sure read the website of the developer.

Gary, and Ootje -- thanks very much! I should have guessed.... I regret never checking out my suspicions... all this time. But really, I never thought to ask anyone, I guess -- till I finally ASKED here.... God knows what variety of programmes I used in all these years....

I do recall Karen's Replicator -- in fact, I often went to that, as I learned it simply copied every file -- with NO proprietory compression! But I hadn't used it recently...and now it seems it may not work properly with Win10 (it may not write the sub-directories).

Your explanation was useful, and Ootje's suggestion was certainly helpful. If I had really thought about it, rather than just blindly "backing up" as the absolute MUST thing to do, I would have done that.

Now, perhaps the only thing to do is to try every programme I can recall I may have used -- and apart from Karen's Replicator, I am sure I used Sync-back, and one of the "bigger" companies, like Macrium -- and see if they can make sense of whatever I have stored....

In future, I do think that people who admonish "Back up, back up!" all the time, ALSO point out, "And make a NOTE of the programme (and version) you USED to make that backup."

-- Otherwise you're (backed) up a greasy pole without a ladder -- to use a very mixed metaphor!

Tranmontane, sometimes you can google for the extension of the file of the backup. Sometimes you can find a good program to activate a restore.
A few years back I had the same problem: an back-up/image, but how it was made ? ? with what program ??

My comment is more of a review to what I take in regarding everyone’s experience and the overall quality of the backup program via that experience.

It’s apparent iBDB ( iBeesoft DBackup ) is an average standard run of the mill program which runs good once it’s installed though how do we simplify the install and activation process without too much involved. I’ve no problem installing programs from GOTD though I have been around computers since 1990 and done Cert IV IT courses. ...

So generally speaking, the whole install and activate process needs to be simplified for the standard computer user. Ashampoo vendors use a very simple process with no issues, and it’s not a copyright breach to use another’s way of installation and activation so perhaps all vendors stick to one process which takes out the complications once downloaded and ready to install.

Now ...re the voting system of how good or how bad the software program is... “There is no single standalone button” to vote whether or not everyone likes or dislikes the software program... which is what we are enquiring to...

The only review I understand here is the voting on each persons comments, yes agree this, no I disagree to the comment usefulness.

***For more accuracy on how good the program is:
In summary we need “one button to vote yes or no’ at the top ....

Then a secondary voting system on every one’s usefulness of feedback....

OTHERWISE allow comments to be left on here and take off the secondary votes of usefulness to comments....

Some run off track or only speak about the install and activation process, or another vendors software and should be deemed as fair or useful comment for today’s GOTD.

My comment doesn’t need a vote as it’s more to a forum suggestion

PS; is the forum board still in operation or was it too time consuming for moderators?

I am always surprised about "clever" comments made here. Windows 10 has "Disk Image" - works for me --make a recovery disk.
How often has somebody "needed" a program like this? Macrium is easy.
I have several laptops. As soon as I have one I make a disk image - on a hard drive the size that is in the machine. Something wrong? Replace the hard drive with the working image. >>> and fix the other one :-)

My experience with installing and activating the program .

Downloaded ok .

Clicked setup.exe , I get a message that I have another , older version
of the program installed that must get uninstalled in order to continue
with the installation .
The strange thing is that I DON'T have another version of the program
installed on my Pc .
Anyway , I decide to click "ok" and continue with the installation .
A small window pops up , telling me that a program called
Disk Master Professional is been uninstalled !!!!!
I am thinking "what the heck is going on ???" , but I can't go back now .
After that , the installation finished without a problem .
The activation of the program however was a different adventure ...
I 've started the program , clicked the small key icon located to the top
right corner and entered the activation/Registration key found in the
readme.txt file .
I get an error message of some kind of a network failure and another
small window poped up with 3 entries to be filled .

1) License code (License) : this is the activation/Registration key found
in the readme.txt file .

2) Hardware code (Key) : You must copy that .

3) Activation code (Key) : In order to get that you must go below the
"Step3" and click the link (blueish phrase) "Visit the online activation page"
A new page opens on your browser (QILING Disk master) with 2 entries .

1) SerialNo : this is the activation/Registration key found in the readme.txt file .

2) HardwareId : this is the Hardware code (Key) .

Enter the codes , click "Submit" and you get the message :

"Authentication is successful, your activation code is :
I am NOT going to enter my code here ... ;-)
Please save the activation code,
Click here to activate the next serial number."

And that's it ... you have an activated program .

Ahhh, but you can go back, like I did. "Disk Master Pro" is better for me, because of the virtual ram feature I use daily. System restore didn't work, but system backup (from 3 days earlier) did restore DM Pro and deleted iBeesoft.

iBeesoft DBackup is a subset of QILING Disk Master Pro, which isn't a bad thing, since the QILING app has gotten mostly decent reviews. The only thing I saw that was iBeesoft was the program's window or GUI -- that means the help file has a lot of stuff that only applies to the full Disk Master Pro app. The QUILING DMP site: idiskhome[.]com/

iBeesoft DBackup [& QILING DMP] can back up files or disk/partition images -- an image backup is the raw data on a drive, which is faster to backup & restore, and can include files you can't normally access, e.g. those to make Windows start or boot. Both types of backups are stored in a proprietary format VHD [Virtual Hard Disk] that can be mounted. You can create a bootable USB stick or ISO to burn on a CD/DVD, which appears to use the recovery files [boot.wim] normally installed with Windows. The help file for the more complete QILING app shows the option to use the Windows AIK or ADK to get WinPE -- the mini version of Windows that runs on the USB stick -- but that's missing in the iBeesoft version [though it may appear if it can't find Windows recovery files].

Many disk/partition image backup apps, including QILING DMP, but not iBeesoft DBackup, can add the same files they'll put on a USB stick to the hard drive instead, adding them to a boot menu -- when you start the device you'll see a menu to boot into Windows or into that recovery environment. Some, e.g. Macrium Reflect, will also add that setup if you restore a Windows backup from the main app, rather than booting to a USB stick. Whichever software you use ALWAYS test bootable USB sticks &/or recovery environs added to the hard drive Before you need them, because they do not always work with every device -- Macrium may be the best in that regard.

Using a win7 ult 32 bit VM: Installing iBeesoft DBackup added the program's folder [~34 MB], a ProgramData\ Backup folder, an empty c:\My Storage folder, 2 drivers [diskbckp.sys & vDisk.sys], and Windows\ System32\ fcl.dll. It also added ~350 new registry entries. It runs DmAgent.exe [in the program's folder] as a service that starts with Windows. Activation uses the key included in the GOTD readme.txt file. When you click the button that looks like a key the dialog opens to enter it -- afterwards you'll get a confirmation message window, which only appears the 1st time you activate the app, and that's the only indication that it is activated.

Activation DOES work...

BUT...
again one of those many stupid programs that do not show up that they are activated.

I don´t like programs which take so little care for those things:
I think, this is kind of proof, how little attention and awareness is given to the complete package - not just to programming some functions...

The program itself is fast, but compression is not to good
Beside the registration "issue" there are some other smaller glitches.
And it seems, as if it cannot "mount" a saved image ...?
(But I must admit: I did nt feel to get to much into handling this program - because I found nothing attracting or special with it - neither handling, nor the optic and or the features )


Btw: there are many, many competitors - some of them were already mentioned...

MY favorite is still (and since almost 10 years!) Drive Snapshot ! And they are really gracious:
- you can forever recover your data with a not paid version
- you can always download a fresh version which always again fully works for ~30 days
- snapshot.exe is just one small .exe file, and works fine in any Window-RE (recovery environment)
and as well in each Windows PE - without any installation!

My 2nd. choice, and REALLY free, is the free version of Aomei Backupper:
- advantage here is the cloning option!
(but as mentioned: I do like better small solutions - as Snapshot.exe is ...)

Reply   |   Comment by wosa  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

wosa, If Drive Snapshot works for you, then that should be your go-to program (the proof's in the pudding - if it worked when you needed it, then it's a winner ! As to Aomei Backupper : A big NO to that one, it has dropped me on two occasions, with their verified (by them) backup system image sitting nicely on my plugged in external HDD, but both times (the second time was a test by me) it refused to 'see' the backup image when booting from the WinPE rescue media I made with Aomei - the first time it failed, it put me in a world of hurt.

Now Macrium Reflect Free has been my go-to program for a year, and though I've not needed it, I have tested it, just to be sure, and true enough, its rescue Win PE media works correctly.

My brother swears by MiniTool. So whichever software you choose, be sure to first test it, do not just rely on it without testing, for when the pawpaw hits the fan, just because it makes a fast and pretty system image file.

Last thought : I wouldn't trust any giveaway, lifetime or not - it just happens too often that GAOTD software stops functioning months after - simply not a risk one should take with emergency system image backup software. Especially not when many people have noticed irregularities with the software design.

I'd stick with my tried and tested Macrium Reflect Free, as you should stick to your tried and tested Drive Snapshot.

But never use Aomei Backupper, nor EaseUS Backup, which was another Chinese brand software (like Aomei) which I used before Aomei, also looked and functioned well until restore time came around, then failed me.

So far no statement whether this is a 1 year license.
Generally for bare-metal system backup software, you cannot afford to have the licence expire. As for bare-metal system backup Freeware, I am not so sure. If that works for you, then good.
Otherwise pay a little money to get a Paid bare-metal system backup software.
Choose the one with few or NO bells and whistles.
Choose the one that is un-complicated to use.
Choose the one that does not always prod you to back up to the Cloud (and for which you must PAY additional money every month) --- this extortionate scam by some software developers is often touted as a desirable "Feature".
Good luck in your search for a reliable backup software.

The reason for a thumbs up from me , It seems to do what it claims to do in a minimum amount time . No hassle to register it, no high tech language to figure out how to use it. I have several Back up software on my computers and I have tried them all, as I do computer repair .My first computer was made by the Timex company it was about 8 inch square with no operating system. One had to learn programming at that time.

I am impressed, download, register was a very simple process. The speed to back up a tb hard drive was about 26 minutes. I have a 4 tb external HD The software chose to back it up there .About 3 mouse clicks and 26 minutes and it was done. I find no cons with this software, I didn't try restoring it yet , but I must assume it will work, It is a well thought out design much simpler than most of the other major brands I like simple in every day language. Thanks to iBeesoft and giveaway of the day for an excellent gift

Brian,

Happens all the time. Most comments are about the inability to download or are about alternative programs that do the same thing and the pluses and minuses relate to this rather than the product itself. This is one of the greatest faults of the User Rating system. Even your comment gets a +1 which falsely suggests that the product is good. Maybe mine will too even though I'm not commenting on the product at all.

Niv, if your commet get s +1 or a -1 it is of NO reference to the giveaway program but to popular agregate opinion on the popularity of your comment or you as a commenting personality... it is entirely subjective and gives no indication of the total number of readers that expressed an opinion which is why I do not take it personally if I get +50 or -50 on any given comment since the readership is very varid and can be in the thousands. Only the User votes near the top of the program are intended to be refering to the giveaway program/vendor integrity/activation system enforced with a particular giveaway. Generally, forgetting the voting bias towards thumbs up because we are never asked why we click thumbs up but are always asked why we clicked thumbs down and not all thumbs down reasons go towards the public tally. Normally there is little to no corruption on the presented user vote numbers, there has been in the past concerted automated voting that has resulted in significant time delay before a vote is permitted to be submitted to make it impractical to automate voting system attack and in the past there has been cases where the number of user votes presented for thumbs down actually went down between loading page and clicking a vote proving the backend database values were manually adjusted by a database administrator but that is very rare in my experience.

All links return 404.
I downloaded and install the free trial instead.

It seems to confuse backup and cloning which are different functions.

I am only interested in cloning an entire drive to another. It can do this but what does it call this function and how fast is it? Does the trial slow it down to 30mbps as do most?

I have a 1TB drive which can take 9 hours with cloning freeware!
Is this faster?

"It seems to confuse backup and cloning which are different functions."

Cloneing copies raw data from one drive/partition to another, while an image backup copies that same data to an archive, usually a type of VHD. Restoring an image backup to a different drive/partition gives you the same results as cloning, and appears to be the way you'd have to do it using iBeesoft DBackup.

"I have a 1TB drive which can take 9 hours with cloning freeware!
Is this faster?"


The size of the drive is immaterial, unless you're doing a sector by sector copy -- it's the amount of data on the drive that matters, with more data taking longer to transfer. Copying raw data is not CPU or RAM intensive, and while the software used can have an effect, the main thing IMHO is how fast your hardware & connections can move that data from one drive to another. A couple of NVMe drives are going to be faster than SATA SSDs, which are faster than regular SATA hard drives, which are faster than USB etc.

"Macrium can create a boot entry option for restore during boot. AOMEI does make good software from my experience though."

If you restore a Windows backup running the app in Windows, it will also create that bootable environ, load it onto a RAM disk on restart, and restore the backup. EasyBCD will let you remove it from the boot menu. AOMEI's bootable USB sticks will not work everywhere for me, which *for me* kills its usefulness.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

mike, Sounds like one just needs to know what they want/need and proceed accordingly. Generally, when you restore a drive (assuming it is your bootable drive) you would want that bootable menu to return, hence the reason you want to "restore". If you are only interested in file backup you can browse and pick files from the image created. You can also manually select to create and restore backups, make a CD or bootable USB, for me (and I assume many) Macrium covers a majority of what might be wanted with plenty of versatility. If you use the paid you also have bare metal restoration options and Macrium protects the images created with Image Guardian so you truly have a pretty well-rounded solution.

AOMEI I've used and like but it just isn't as capable as Macrium.

krypteller, eek "The programmer made a small slip" .... not a good indicator for a system backup program incorporating 3rd party kernal mode drivers/services!

krypteller, Entering via Key: It will not accept the (Long) Activation series of numbers and letters. (Which it said to keep)
It won't accept Registration Key either.
It will not accept the serial number as a correct entry.
It still says that I have the 30 day trial version!
Do I have the Trial version or the Registered version.
