I work for a small IT company and we have been trying to find a piece of software that will run backups of the machines we intake to our server. We are currently using Acronis 2009 to backup disks. We like it because we can browse the backups using Windows Explorer. I was wondering if anyone knew of a updated program that will allow disk backups to network storage, file browsing the backup through Windows Explorer, restoring full disk or selected files, working quickly and efficiently?

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I would suggest rewording the question asking how to do something, as opposed to "waht program to do x", to avoid this from being closed – Canadian Luke Dec 19 '12 at 6:00
You can use for example a newer version of Acronis or Norton Ghost. In my personal environment i like Acronis - but the 2010 version had problems with Windows 8 laptops at our site. – Offler Dec 19 '12 at 6:53
The current version of Acronis allows you to do this. – Ramhound Dec 20 '12 at 18:51

My company found Macrium Reflect. It has a free version, and a commercial version. It does the cloning, imaging, restoring to new HDDs, and the ability to mount images

Do you mean with "free version" the 30-days trial? – Offler Dec 19 '12 at 6:50
No, there is a full FREE version, just does not support Server installs, and is not meant for commercial use. We bought the $60 version for our office – Canadian Luke Dec 19 '12 at 19:35
Are you sure? At the website i only see version for private or business use which cost money. – Offler Dec 20 '12 at 12:28
I'll find the link when I get into the office – Canadian Luke Dec 20 '12 at 15:57
