I agree with everyone else who has posted here. Just two questions:

(1) Why isn't the aggregate score 5, when every single review gives it 5?
(2) Why isn't the latest version featured here (1.82a at the time of writing)?

Excellent and trustworthy little tool for managing disks and partitions, it has all the standard functions and more for the job in a single 1.44mb image for floppy disk or cd boot.

Superbly engineered shareware, highly recommended.

A 3-in-1 utility (partitioning, imaging and multiboot manager).I used the trial version on my Dell bitburner (Dimension 5000).I tried partitioning, imageing, restoring, reseizing, copying of a whole partition, burning image directly to DVD and played with multibooting. All went flawlessly. This is a veeeery reliable tool. I bought this product after using it a couple of days of intensive experimenting. The price is a steal.
The only negative thing I could find till now is the users manual: it's not clear and confusing. Although english is not my mother tongue, I noticed that some other (english speaking) users feel the same. My advice to those who want to try/buy this gem is to go to the Terabyte site (which is very good) and then to the support site of this product and select the videoýs of this product the company has put there. Also (on the same page) the Hefly's help page that contains vids showing for e.g how to partition, restore etc. One vid tells you more than x number pages of written manual. This is an easy way of grasping the concept of this program. You will notice the program is not difficult at all. After having looked at the vids the manual will be readable in most cases. By taking this order (vids, manual) you are decreasing the chance of turning your back at this program (what I almost did) because you might think that this program is for geeks and too difficult for you. It is not.

httpd and scodan both nail it: There is no utility in this class which is more reliable or better supported, and is the only imaging utility capable of verifying every single solitary byte that is backed up. Read the manual, use it, and then sleep easy afterwards.

Find a flaw in this software. I challenge you to. If you do manage to find a legitimate flaw, notify the author, and it will be fixed, most likely within hours.

Find more reliable software. I challenge you to. You can't.

The only people complaining about TeraByte Unlimited products are frustrated competitors.

Although it is not a newbies stuff, if you read carefully the manual, BootITNG is a very secure, effective and safe software. I use it along with other programs from the authors (IFW and IFD ) and they all do a perfect match to manage harddrives, safely create partitions and to backup data or the entire systems parttition. And for the price ( I purchased the entire bundle for less that 50 bucks ) it's really good spent money. Look no further...but read the manual carefully.

BootIt NG is definitely not for the newbies, or for those who want a utility that works within Windows (and trashes their system, and costs $50 every 6 months to keep up to date, and has no support, and conflicts with everything else, and...). There is NO utility in this niche which is more reliable or better supported. And BootIt NG (along with other utilities from the same author) is still the ONLY imaging utility capable of verifying every single byte that is backed up. That's very important, given that firmware bugs, hard drive errors, and other unforeseeable problems can happen without prior warning. So while it's easy to pick apart the things that are wrong with BootIt NG (it's not the easiest to use, you have to reboot, etc.), you will NEVER find a utility which is as good at what it does.
