Windows Desktop backup/recovery

A while back, I came across a couple of interesting applications:

‘StorageCraft Backup Software for Data Protection and DR | StorageCraft
ShadowProtect’ (


‘Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Workstation’

They both claim to be able to restore a Windows backup to a new
machine, one that is not identical to the original. The ShadowProtect
product even allows a restore to/from an Intel/AMD architecture.

Most of the reviews are a couple of years old and cover previous
versions. I know nothing about these products and don’t know anyone who
is using them. While they provide some interesting capabilities, we all
know that good backup software needs a lot more than just that.

If anyone has worked with either of these vendors or has any experience
with either of these products, I’d appreciate hearing your thoughts.
