The most important feature CB currently lacks is the built-in ability to create startup/bootable CD (or USB) media, containing CB, which can be used to backup/restore a system without having to boot into an operating system.
Most of the major backup/cloning applications have this capability built-in and do not require a user to go through the trouble of using a third-party utility to create one.
A bootable cd has indeed been asked for for quite some time. it is the one main feature that this application has been sorely lacking. Add. this and you will have a great product. I will note it is due to this lacking feature I do not use CB yet. instead I use the backup supplied with the installation disk just to allow me to do system recoveries when necessary.
