Windows 7 clone options

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently had my main drive drop out on me and after going through everything to get it back to the way it was, i had to wonder if there was a better way, so i've been looking around and thought i'd try here.

Basically want i want to go is clone the windows install, as it is now. With all its drivers and program files and settings and customized graphics options, and i was wondering what the best utility for the task was?

If it is 7 you can use backup and restore to create a system image.

edit: you may want to consider filling in your system information in "user cp" will help people address any problems with your hardware / software in the future.

Thanks guys. I thought about using the windows 7 option but i wasn't sure if there was anything better. Sometimes the windows options aren't the best but i hear good things about the win7 option.

I'll update the CP now, totally forgot about that.
