Acronis vs Windows Image Recovery?
Jan 28, 2011, 2:06 PM
I'm going to be using Acronis to image my system drives:
1) Acronis can make a boot CD and recover the image that way...
2) Win7 install CD can also recover an image.
Is there a difference between these 2 methods, and if so, what is it?

acronis goes the extra steps,but the win 7 built in works great!

Ok, so they're equivalent? I couldn't figure out how they couldn't be to be fair...
** Also - is it common practice to store backups AND images on the same disk? I figured it might be safer to separate them...
