e2346437 is an unknown quantity at this point

As an aside, I've used DriveImage XML before, and restoring from an image seems to work OK but you must run fdisk on the resulting drive to set it as bootable after the image is restored.

Also found that it is a fairly slow performer. Ghost is much better, but won't get some "maintenance" partitions, such as IBM/Lenovo.

Acronis is the best in my opinion.

I avoid Norton products.
Thank you for the checkmark for Acronis.

I understand avoiding their AV but some of their other products are cool.
