Backing up and restoring my Windows installation?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Basically, I'd like to back up my Windows 7 installation, secure erase my SSD, throw Windows Server 2008 R2 on there, test it out for a few weeks, and if it doesn't work out, restore my Windows 7 installation.

Anybody know of any good (namely reliable and 4K alignment safe) ways to do this, other than Acronis?

Have you tried Paragon Backup & Recovery?

Recently used to create a restore image for a customer, its the only alternative i use to Acronis.

Symantec Ghost and Acronis True Image have worked for me throughout the years. I heard Paragon is decent as well. I've had the most success with ghost.

Acronis and others will usually set it to 1k.
