I am new to the forum here
I have a question regarding MaxBlast Image Backup/Restore and Windows 7
I am aware that technically Maxblast does not support windows 7 but I have
also read how using the maxblast bootable media it is possible to backup
"any pc-Based operating system" using the sector by sector approach.
I have windows 7 Home Premium and I wanted to do a complete disc
backup / restore because a number of unmovable system files have found
their way to the inner most (slowest) part of the disc and appear to be slowing
my computer down.
* I would like to restore the files to the outer tracks to enhance the performance.
But i believe the sector-by-sector approach will simply restore the files to their
original physical tracks on the disc and so the exercise would be pointless to try.
Is there any way the procedure outlined above can be achieved with windows 7 ?
Are there any suitable alternatives to Maxblast ?
Can anyone help me at all ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

These forums don't seem to be frequented by many so you may be ages waiting for a reply.....
I'm using MaxBlast but with XP Pro and it appears to be working though it has done some odd things occasionally.
If I were you I'd post on the Acronis forum, you stand a good chance of getting replies there and of course MaxBlast is an Acronis product.
If you don't have any luck with MaxBlast you could try Macrium. There's a free version and apparently it's pretty good.

hi John .. thanks for your reply
i also use Maxblast with XPPro .. work fine every time for me
this was the first time i actually tried a restore with W7
and then i found out my "solution" was not compatible .. disappointment !
Anyway .. I am trying Macrium now .. so far so good ..
If things dont go well I will try the Acronis board and maybe some others
All the best - peace
