    From the front page.

    Has anyone tried this freeware program? Is it as good as other ghosting programs that cost big bucks? Is it easy to figure out?
    If you are wondering it is here.

    Tried this the other day. Used it to do it's stuff in safe mode & it worked well. Pretty good for freeware. Be even better when the author figures out a way to compress the image.

    Seems I decided to format Just as the site went belly up. Formatted, got everything loaded & tweaked the way I wanted then used DrvImagerXP 1.2 to make an image. Again all went well with the image. Hooked up to the internet & updated my virus program. The download became corrupted & I could not get rid if it.

    Ahhhh brainwave. Use DrvImager 1.2 to go back. No problem. Set it going, it reboots to safe mode, gets to just over 7gig done (10gig partition) & suddenly reboots again. That was it, stuffed. I had to format again.

    Let the author know what happens & he replies saying yes v1.2 did have a problem, here's v1.3, try that & let me know. Yeah right like I'm going to trust that program again. Me thinks not.

    When it comes to backing up your drive you really need software that is reliable - I would sooner pay the extra than risk losing it all

    You called your one DrvImager the link I found was DriveClone I believe - are they the same?

    The reg cleaner is brilliant.

    I use the reg cleaner too. Seems to do a good job. All three programs are written by the same guy. He says driveclone is nearly as good as drvimager. I don't know what the differences are. They are all on the same page.
