For whatever reason, my wife's primary computer got a corrupt system profile yesterday, effectively "losing everything" from her perspective: outlook config, desktop files, documents, etc. I dropped the PC Restore CD in the drive and watched tentatively as it walked smoothly through a very straight-forward and simple process to let me select my system, the drives I wanted to restore, and then it took about 20 minutes to get us right back to the perfect state we were in on Sunday.
Thanks for making a perfect backup and restore user experience! I don't think that could have been easier or better.
