Benefits & Features
Aside from downloading to make sure this freebie is valid, I did not test FarStone TotalRecovery 7 Express so I cannot comment on how good (or bad) it is or give any positive or negative recommendation. However, it is definitely an interesting program.
FarStone TotalRecovery is a a product line of backup software by FarStone Technology. FarStone TotalRecovery 7 Express is a system-level backup program that creates images of your hard drives and/or partitions. The catch here is TotalRecovery 7 Express works from a boot/recovery disk (or bootable USB). In other words, aside from registering the program and creating a bootable disk/USB, you can’t use TotalRecovery 7 Express from within Windows. To create (and restore) backups, you need to run TotalRecovery 7 Express from outside Windows, from the bootable CD/DVD/USB that you created. Interesting.
The following chart, created by the developer, shows the features of TotalRecovery 7 Express, as well as compares it to TotalRecovery 7 Pro:

FarStone TotalRecovery 7 Express is being given away in a promotion by Novate Solutions. There is no information on if this promotion is time-limited or not nor if you can install/reinstall after the promotion has ended.
To get FarStone TotalRecovery 7 Express for free, do the following:

…you are good to go. All you have to do now is create your bootable CD/DVD/USB (or ISO) and start using TotalRecovery 7 Express (from outside Windows — you must boot from the CD/DVD/USB).
