No, they've posted the same thing in several other threads. Reported another as spam already.

It is personal experience. I had posted about a series of mishaps trying to install Zorin 9 on my notebook in another thread on this forum. Before the install I had made a System Backup (I thought) in Windows 8 but that did not work it turned out when I needed it. I used a method that I had used in Windows 7. But no dice.

There are many misleading tutorials on the net -including on YouTube- about how to do it in Windows 8 with the Windows 7 method, but it is obviously mostly copycat work without them actually trying to see if they could really reset their pc's to an earlier state with those supposedly made System Image backups.

The real hands-on tutorials show that you have to go through a whole series of actions to do it. Including changing the boot sequence and the use of a recovery disk I found out later.

I was persistent and kept trying to get Zorin to double boot with Windows, and someone on the Zorin forum tried to help me posting many links to his tutorials in the thread I had started there. But they were mostly Greek to me, and confused me. I reformatted four times these last days.

So I posted in the other thread here that I was forced to stick with only System Restore.

But I felt the impulse to surf for backup software that would hopefully work with Windows 8, and that is how I found the freebie on YouTube.

I've tried it out this afternoon, and to my happy surprise it worked. Including doing a full image restore with it as a test. First I made the backup. After that I made a document with only the word "Test" in it and saved it in Documents. Then I used the backup and that document was gone as it should.

It's just that after four factory image reformattings during these last days I was very enthusiastic about this, so I posted it there as my last post: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi....php?p=5214982

And after that I saw that there was also a version for Linux, and thought some here might like it. And it is free.
That's all.

LodeHere, thanks for the follow-up. You may want to consider posting a detailed report about your experience in the LinuxQuestions.org Member Success Stories forum, maybe by highlighting the added value of the tool you've discovered.
