Harddisk Imaging

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

I am looking for a good and easy to use piece of software that I can use to image my Operating system and for it to be easy to re image my hard drive just incase an issue crops up.

Please do not mention the image backup capabilities within Windows 7. I do not like it as it does not function correctly when I last tried and meant I had to start again so please no Windows 7 image backup.

Thanks.

Active disk (vista boot disk) use it at college easy to use simply click disk to image takes 20mins to do (depends on size of the files on the hdd) and when u need to re-install the image takes even less time and all your files are backed up e.c.t use it at home when my laptop got wiped re-installed it and everything was back to normal best software I've ever used

I was going to recommend Acronis True Image, as it has saved me many times.
When I install an OS I make an image after I get my programs installed so I have a fresh copy if needed that is activated.

I also do images at certain time periods to have a current full backup image

Yeah, that is what I am planning to do too. I have just bought it and we will see smile.gif hopefully it is all its cracked up to be.

You will be happy smile.gif

I have a couple of external drives that Acronis images are all they contain.
I would suggest you not use its constant backup feature as that can/will degrade performance.

True Image, love it, use it, rely on it.....never had any problems, it has some nice features like you can create a secure zone on any hard drive( I have a spare drive installed just for Acronis backups) , plus you can add a boot sequence via the menu, so if your system bellies up then you can boot straight into a saved backup and restore.
