i never used any of these, so i can't recommend them.
for dayly backups, i use syncback  :  there is a free version , so you can test it out if you like it http://www.2brightsparks.com/welcome/backup/freeware-2013-01-02-sp.html?gclid=CJvdroeu87wCFWvkwgodFSMAhw

Personally, i take acomplete backup 1-4 times per year - then differential ones
i always keep at least 2 complete ones + differential
an image is the same as the original drive, so yes it restores the license

for imaging, i use the Paragon B&R (free) : http://www.paragon-software.com/free/      
but they have commercial versions too

It is impossible to answer your question because we have no idea what it is that you are backing up.  Is this a workstation?  Server?  What operating system?

If this is a business, then following nobus' advice above to do a backup 1-4 times per year would be just horrible.

Tell us more about what you are backing up and then you can get proper advice.

I agree with Jeff that we need more info on what you are trying to backup and on what, although is disagree with him on nobus's differentials forever technique, pretty valid in today's world but usuallly depends on having lots to backup

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

My comment about Nobus' recommendation is that in a business environment, it  may make more sense to do a full backup weekly -- some compliance rules require a monthly full backup to be archived (although this can be accomplished with differentials).

Asking - can you tell us if you want to use it for personal, or busines systems?
