Hard drive imaging software?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i currently have a computer that i need to make a backup of the hard drive. It's hard drive is in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format, but i need to make the image in windows and be able to restore it from windows. In case i screw something up bad, i dont want to spend hours reinstalling the OS. (If you're keeping up so far, you probably know what i'm doing.)

So i have tried R-drive and have had terrible luck with it... can anyone recommend me a different RELIABLE program that i could use to do this?

Try Acronis. It's Linux based.

Acronis has a better interface than clonezilla, but either should work fine.
