    Hey there. Been faithful to Acronis and am willing to apply myself to learning the whole 'Universal Restore' process, if it's got a good track record.

    Am tres happy with my C-Drive as it is now and would like it to be legacy'd to another system as is. No need at present but to do NORMAL HD imaging, as my present system is working great, but would like to do a no-fail 'Dissimilar Hardware Restore/Universal Restore' one day, into a new PC/system.

    Just want my DAW and VST's and all the fixin's to behave when the process is completed.

    What would you guys recommend as being the best experience/software for the job?

    Please & Thanks in advance!!

    on MacOS, I have best experience with Carbon Copy Cloner (can do full bootable backup of system drive while computer is running),
    no idea what alternative is available for Windows

    I tried that program initially. Didn't work for me.
    I believe cloning is easier when the OS is on a USB stick or CD, and not the HD you are trying to copy.
    Apparently Clonezilla also ensures virus free cloning.

    Acronis is the best on the market, but i also like AOMEI.

    Yeah, this is great feedback fellas! I've seen most of the above and heard its praises sung, but I wanted to hear from Audio guys re their successes (or failures) esp. having all their virtual gear 'come back to life' in a new system with a cloned (but somehow, stripped down due to proprietary mobo drivers & the like) version of their HDD or SSD.

    Might just learn myself Acronis then. Thanks everyone!

    Have a great rest of the week!
