"I find Farstone superior in ease and product."

I find Farstone superior in ease and product. I tried your trial version 10.03 today on a couple of Windows 8.1 computers and it worked great. Had to have it. While I have other major products for creating multiple backups (I learned the hard way) e.g. Acronis, Norton Ghost, Spotmau, Macrium Reflect, I find Farstone superior in ease and product. - Sal, California

Rapid Restore unique!

20X faster

Rapid Restore technology is exclusive to FarStone. When performing rapid restore, it will only restore those files have been changed since last backup. Thus Rapid Restore is the optimal solution capable of bringing a crashed system up and running in minutes. For instance, a typical Windows system normally has more than 100,000 files. Total Backup Recovery only restores the files that have been changed since the last backup date, thus only a fraction of the files need to be restored. This is why Total Backup Recovery solution can be 20 times faster than other competitors.


Rapid Restore

Secure & Super Fast!
"Rapid Restore takes only minutes to totally restore a system. "

Full, Incremental, and Differential

Greatly reduce the backup time

Total Backup Recovery backs up everything on the first backup (Full backup). It would then perform incremental or differential on all future backup. Incremental mode backs up only the changed data since your previous backup. Differential mode backs up all changed data since your last full backup. Ultimately, both incremental and differential modes would drastically reduce backup time.


Incremental and differential backup

I've wet-tested nine "Best-of-Breed" BU Packages for Win 8.1, and nothing comes even remotely close to Total BU Recovery. Superlative in every aspect! - Gregory


"WOW!! I mean I DO expect these features in a commercial/enterprise application... but for home!!"

Being a application developer, I am a very picky person when it comes to software, its UI and ease of use. I like how easy it is to create images, snapshots, and incremental backups. The interface is so easy to use compared to the other products above. Sheesh.. not to mention.. I don't even have to shut down my PC and it's super fast!!!!! I have yet to test a restore on another machine, however but that feature about loading on a different PC with dissimilar hardware.. well that will be awesome!! I have done quite a bit PC baselining and imaging .. and let me tell you.. this seems way easier than SysPreping!! When I emailed you at first.. I didn't even see the brick level backup capability! I just saw that today and was like WOW!! I mean i DO expect these features in a commercial/enterprise application... but for home!! I was blown away. Keep up the good work! Thanks again for a great product!! I have been recommending your product to my friends and co-workers! Terry



"Your product has saved us in many other ways more than I could ever begin to write about."

We have about 16 CNC machines that keep our remanufacturing shop running. One of the flaws of these CNC machines is that surrounding the computer the temperature fluctuates, vibration is enviable and power fluctuations happen every time the CNC moves! The computers have been built tough with dampers and power conditioners that could run a server room, but the one thing they forgot about was the hard drive. It is directly over power vent and endures a pounding on a regular basis. We figured out that when a hard drive goes down, we can lose up to $500,000 in lost time and materials that could have been processed. So we decided to convert all of the hard drives over to compact flash drives with the help of an IDE to compact flash adapter. Your program was critical and will continue to be critical to the success of this project, with the help of Drive Clone we have been able to make backup copies of our CNC's and also transfer the images to the compact flash drive making our situation with the CNC a whole lot more reliable. We have a process in place that takes about 5 hours and we clone every machine once a month to ensure data recoverability. Your product has saved us in many other ways more than I could ever begin to write about. Thanks for making a great product and the A+ support your company has. - Tom McIntyre



"Excellent product"

excellent product. Many thanks! - Michael Peterson



"Rapid Restore is super fast"

I like its new features in version 10. Rapid restore is not so fast as snapshot. But it is different technology and can be used in different machines. I would like to suggest my friend to buy it. - Brooks


"Thumbs up to Farstone for a great product"

Working in the IT support sector I realized that I was guilty of not properly backing up my own home computer. I was fairly certain I wanted to be able to create a snapshot of my entire hard drive in case of a catastrophic hardware failure. I didn't want to spend the time loading the OS then loading all the applications and do the countless configuration settings.



"I have recently switched from using Acronis True Image"

The backup and restore processes work flawlessly. Their Customer Support is, refreshingly, responsive and one is totally reassured when relying on their products. I have found this to be a totally trouble-free experience. I would urge and recommend anyone facing problems with Acronis True Image to switch and enjoy stress-free disk image backup and restore experience. - Ash Johnson



"In few minutes the computer is back on track"

In few minutes the computer is back on track, couple of more minutes to update software patches. Finally get a new computer image and ready for the next challenge. The same process without Farstone could take 1 to 2 days. - Carlos Guzman



"Best back up and recovery software on the planet at any price"

very easy to use, cost effective and it does the job right. I am very happy with FarStone - Dale Nugen

“In few minutes the computer is back on track”

I have 3 kids and their friends that keep damaging the home computers. They treat computers really bad. So after 2 to 4 months they become slow and full of problems, unknown software, etc. ...Then it is time for Farstone to reinstall the image.... In few minutes the computer is back on track, couple of more minutes to update software patches. Finally get a new computer image and ready for the next challenge. The same process without Farstone could take 1 to 2 days. - Carlos
