currently I do not have any copy program.
but from the description of this program it follows that it is a program that would best suit me to this kind of making a copy of the system, that's why I'm taking part in a competition for this soft.
thanks for the competition and the opportunity to win it.
Merry Christmas. Thumb

Currently, I manually backup my files and folders, but it is an insecure and slowly method of backup, while with Macrium Reflect I can count on a very professional software to keep my data secure.

Thanks for the giveaway

Hard drives are mechanical devices. Like mechanical things, there is a risk of deterioration. The situation is unfortunately not as simple as handling a wrench when you see a broken car. It is usually a non-refundable way, as soon as your drive fails. Also included in data loss. We mean not only your files and documents but also data loss, including your programs and Windows installation. It can take weeks or even months to restore everything. If you're ready. Like some, you can use Macrium Reflect directly to copy your hard drive against possible dangers. This will protect all your programs, your Windows installation, and all of your files on the disk against physical or intellectual threats. The recovery process is as simple as installing a new disk and starting from a custom DVD.

On my notebook I am using Macrium Reflect Free. I would like to win the Macrium Reflect Home license, because it has many advantages compared to the free version. Most important for me are password protection, incremental images and rapid delta restore.
