It`s a good program, but we can`t use it, because of manually backup absences

R-Drive Image is a good and quality program. But here is one small thing which forbids buying of this product - it`s absence of opportunity to run backup without a schedule. It is so important to function most other similar commercial suites have its. Unfortunately, R-Drive Image hasn`t manually backup feature so our company can`t buy it. It would be good if the products owners would add it.

Pros:

  • Good working

CONS:

  • No way to backup manually

Acronis True Image is much more better than R-Drive Image

If you would analyze this program you will understand that it isn`t so good. I wasted several days to deal with this program and I think that no nothing better than Acronis True Image. I agree that its last versions aren`t good enough, because they are very crowded with additional functionality. But Acronis qualitatively creates and restores Disk Images. I`ve been using this program for many years and if Disk Images created by Acronis weren`t the same as the original I wouldn`t use it.

Pros:

  • No Pros

CONS:

  • Too complicated to understand

R-Drive Image is amazing, it solved the bad sector on my old drive

R-Drive Image is awesome!!! Only this program has could help me and solve the bad sector on my old drive. The process took several hours( I run the new drive in booted up and off). But as a result I get a good working system, It saves me from permanently software reloading and installing. I thank the developers for this excellent software.

Pros:

  • Nice funcionality performing

There are some stranges, but I still like this software, and also it hasn`t an expensive price

I like R-Drive Image and will probably buy it for my customers. There is one thing that makes me bugger... When I make a backup on Windows Server 2008 r2 using the GUI, it takes a long time to look for CD / DVD writers(probably a few minutes at least five). And as a result, it gives the hung impression. It might be nice to have a skip button, or if you can say the server is running as a VM. However, I like its price that my customers can afford.

Pros:

  • Cheap cost, good quality

CONS:

  • A little slow working

Awesome program, there no sth better it

It is an excellent program and it is superior to similar ones in terms of speed and degree of image compression. Also unlike Acronis, it also sees and creates images of all service partitions without exception, which is essential in modern UEFI PCs. In addition, there are portable versions of the program, which is very convenient.

Pros:

  • Effective compression, it sees all service partitions, portability

CONS:

  • No Cons

It`s a definitely nice software

Hi there! I`d like to share my impressions of using R-Drive Image. It is.. like WOW, it works really cool. It was the simplest using ever for me. I tried many similar programs and R-Drive is the easiest to understand. But the best are results of its working. I just copied disk to disk and imaged one of them from a general file resource. Then both of them worked excellent!

Pros:

  • It has a very user friendly interface

CONS:

  • No cons

I`ve been using Acronis for 8 years succsessfully, but now R-Drive is the better choice

When I`m using R-Drive Image and Acronis on my system with UEFI and GPT disks, I see the following things: 1. After creating a full disk image compression of 20GB(SSD) is equals: 8.2GB (Acronis) and 7.8GB (R-Drive); 2. Compression time: (4.5-6) ??minutes (Acronis) and (3-3.5) minutes (R-Drive); 3. Time for full disk-recovery: (12-25) minutes (Acronis) and 3.5 minutes (Acronis); Notes: I have been using Acronis for 8 years. At the time of using Motherboard on Acronis BIOS, I practically DID NOT EXCEED! Tried R-Drive from time to time, but returned to Acronis... But now motherboards are with UEFI and from that time Acronis became fatally. It lets me down with probability P = ~ 0.5, i.e. ~ 50% luck ... and 50% - reinstall OS... In this regard, R-Drive is simpler, more stable, faster and more obvious...

Pros:

  • Simple and fast

CONS:

  • Compression isn`t enough effective

I can`t use the program new versions with Windows 10 64 bit.

Unfortunately, I couldn`t use all versions of this program that is higher to 6.1. I have Windows 10 64 bit and UEFI. My bootable flash drive doesn`t detect any of the 2 SSD installed even though both are booting properly in w10. And safeboot is disabled. I had been trying to restore the system for 5 hours and reinstall it after. I`m happy that it was successful.

Pros:

  • No pros

CONS:

  • Higher to 6.1 versions aren`t compatible with Win 10 64 bit.

I`m completely satisfied of this program

It`s a really nice program. I`m waiting for the time of the ending trial period of using to buy it. R-Drive Image is so simple to use and that`s why I`ve been setting up scheduled imaging only for 10 minutes. Cloning drives of this program is really fast, and also R-Drive Image cost only 50 dollars that is very cheap. In addition, it is very small, only 11MB!

Pros:

  • Fast, cheap, light, easy

CONS:

  • No cons

R-Drive Image is the greatest program ever

I`ve been using this product for 3.5 years and I think it`s the greatest program ever. It is an excellent solution for backup and recovery. Unlike other similar software, R-Drive Image boots and deploys OS for a very short period of time. I`m very thankful to the developers for this program. And I think that it would be like a bomb if they also to implement a centralized management platform, PXE Boot and Hardware Independent Restore.

Pros:

  • Fast booting and deploying of OS, effectve backup and recovery

CONS:

  • No Cons

The best drive image software!

I used a really big amount of different software for image-backup and nothing could satisfy me. And only R-Drive Image has could to create a backup of drive image of W7(2 partitions) installation and to recreate new HDD image that performs as the source HDD one. I evaluate this program for maximum, it is worthy to have the best rating

Pros:

  • High system protecting, effective working

I`m a sutisfied user of R-Drive Image

Hi everyone! I`ve been already using R-Drive Image for some time and I guess it`s worth our attention. The program works nice. I like its portability. But I don`t want developers to spoil it by adding DRM as Acronis did. I also think that the ability to create Live USB of R-Drive Image would be awesome to add, wouldn`t it?

Pros:

  • Effective utility

CONS:

  • No feature to create Live USB of R-Drive Image

It`s really high quality software for drive backup and image

I like R-Drive Image for its simplicity and feature rich. I`ve already recommended this software for my several friends, because I guess it`s a really nice investment for such great utility. The program performs drive backup and create drive image very effectively. In the same time, R-Drive image does this operations faster than all other similar products I used before. In additional, user interface is simple to understand.

Pros:

  • Easy interface, excellent drive backup and image

CONS:

  • No Cons

Excellent program!

I`m very satisfied with this program. The greatest gratitude to the developers of the R-Drive Image that I adore. Yes, Acronis True Image is really faster than R-Drive, but the second has better compression. I have two partitions where is my system in the first and information in the second. So, with Acronis, everything fits only on a 16GB, and with your product, everything fits in on 7GB. Well done!!! Add more speed to your product, and it will be the best!

Pros:

  • Very good compression

CONS:

  • A little slow

It`s very useful tool for drive image working

Yes, I`m a person who uses R-Drive Image more than one time, moreover, I bought it. And I`m really sure that it`s the best instrument for quality working with disk images. R-Drive Image was so simple for using and did only the right things and nothing superfluous. I especially loved tools for the disk image creating. I also appreciated how it worked with the server OS that I`m playing with(2003 Beta tester). And also it`s good that they offer a beta test.

Pros:

  • Nice drive image tools, simple using

CONS:

  • No cons

It`s so "great" program

I`m very pleased with the product and will now be pleased to sell it with a white sheet over its head boo over other products, especially a common one. However, I have one thing that would be nice to have. I started to restore the image when cloning my laptop as a test. There`s no floppy like in most laptops. I`ve been trying to boot from a USB diskette. It didn`t support trying to boot a cd from. Fine, but it is not possible to read the image cd when the startup disk is removed. I know that it would require a remount of the cdrom to work under the Linux kernel. And the only way I can recover the image is to boot from cd and then load the image of USB hard drive with the images.

Pros:

  • No pros

CONS:

  • Too complicated to use

Excellent program! It is better than Acronis

I like this program. It has a lot of pros, for example, excellent compression, high work speed, no need installation. At the same time, Acronis needs installation. R-Drive Image saves a backup copy in one file and you also can create a password for this copy. I was using the program`s restore function at least 15 times and there no problems. System Section with 27GB size restores for 5-7 minutes. It takes more time for Acronis. So obviously I choose R-Drive Image.

Pros:

  • Good compression, portability, fast work, safe for system and other

CONS:

  • No Cons

R-Drive Image is a reliable program that I use. It has a lot of pros and several cons

I think R-Drive Image is a good program. It`s very reliable. It creates a bootable ISO / USB and that is good. The program also saves a backup in one file which has the smallest size(it seems that only Terabyte Image of the third version has a relatively smaller backup size). R-Drive Image is present on the Streltsy WinPE too. But I also notice some cons of this program. For example, big size, Pro version can`t mount drive image(R-Drive Image 6.1 Build 6103 Portable- version Pro x32, and Technician 6.1 Build 6103 Portable punish x32 mounts the drive image as a virtual disk).

Pros:

  • Saving Backup in one file(small size), creating bootable ISO/USB

CONS:

  • Mounting the drive image as a virtual disk

Not bad program, buy it can`t mount/over the image to a bootable image

The main thing missing from this program is the capacity to change over/mount the picture to a bootable picture. Which means I could clone a physical machine, at regular intervals or something like that. This would enable simpler P to V movements on the off chance that I could change over the .rdr file to a qcow2. For the engineer rendition, it would be worth its price because that as imaging (differential, full, steady) it`s a fabulous item as is.

Pros:

  • It`s flexible

CONS:

  • No function to mount/over the image to a bootable image

It`s all I need to protect my system

Excellent program! R-Drive Image is a nice solution for effective and simple backup. After 30-days trial using, I understand that R-Drive Image it`s completely all I need to save my system, photos and large music collection there. My geek son also likes it and he already had bought this program. I`d like to have this also for my mobile. If R-Tools start mobile backups and if I get credit then I`ll buy it.

  • Effective backup

R-Drive Image is the best

I tried a lot of programs and R-Drive Image has done its work better than 15 other programs together. For example, Aomei compressed the disks too much(it was 100 GB, it became 60GB) by transferring real data. Unlike R-Drive Image copied the necessary partitions of a disk(1TB size) and transplanted to 500GB disk without any loss. It can`t do the most similar programs.

  • Effective work

R-Drive Image saved my system

I`m a user of R-Drive Image for more than eight years. And recently my system got the ZEPTO virus that came from an email attachment. This virus wiped my file server two times. However R-Drive Image solves this problem. I`d been doing full backup of Drive image several nights. As a result, my hard drive was rebuilt successfully. R-drive really saves my system.

For the test results, Acronis is more effective than R-Drive Image

I decided to try both of R-Drive Image 6.2.6203 Boot CD and Acronis True Image 2014 Premium 17.5560 Boot CD to compare them. And I take the conclusion that the second one is better than the first one. R-Drive Image needs more time, approximately from 20 minutes to one hour to process 70GB disk memory, and the received size is from 30 to 40GB. At the other Hand, Acronis copies 70GB for 8 minutes to 16 GB with USB2.

Pros:

  • No pros

CONS:

  • Slow and isn`t effective enough

Generally, it`s a good program but with one disadvantage

R-Drive Image has a drawback. If you copy from drive to drive then this program will copy directly and set the size of partition 40 GB, but it has 120GB. It doesn`t ask me I want it or no. And it is the one thing that I wish to do here. I want to create a clone of the 40GB on the 120GB.

Pros:

  • No pros

CONS:

  • It needs more customization

R-Drive Image has a high ability and rich functionality

I think R-Drive Image is better than DriveXML and I`m completely satisfied with this program. Unlike DriveXML, R-Drive Image reads GPT drives(with Win 8) under XP and in all other drive sections. The image format is compatible with R-Linux. So this program deserves a good score.

  • It reads GPT drives

It`s the best disk backup software to my mind

I`m sure that R-Drive Image is the best software for disk backup! It works GREAT! That program is very simple to use, has excellent data compression function, gives an opportunity to restore wasted or broken image files, has an ability of backup by sector, to encrypt files and a lot of other different useful options. I successfully recovered my drive data at least 3 times. The program works perfectly!

Pros:

  • Effective compession and a lot of useful features
