From the powerquest web site> For dive copy.

"Supports Major Operating System Platforms
DriveCopy supports all of the popular operating systems and the file systems they use.
Windows 2000 Professional
Windows Me
Windows 95/98
Windows NT
Windows 3.1
Linux "

Besides the fact that it does not seem to support XP what are the differences between 'copy' & 'image'? Don't they do the same sort of thing?

well if u had looked at the faq bout the product u wold have seen this
"Q: What is the difference between DriveCopy and Drive Image?
A: DriveCopy is a disk-to-disk cloning tool used for copying the contents of one hard disk directly to another hard disk. Drive Image has the same disk-to-disk cloning function built into it, as well as additional features for creating and restoring image files for backup purposes. "

have a read here

If your looking for a recommendation I'll give driveimage one, I use it once a week where each Saturday morning while I'm asleep it mirrors all my partitions onto a second HD.

Then as just a few days ago I needed to replace my primary partition it was done using a boot disk without any issues.

Also with their explorer you can view and extract individual files to original or other location.

For me very good and proven application.

Thanx for that djmorgan. I know nothing about how these programs work. Never used one but I can see the advantages of having one. 'Image' seems to be the way to go rather than 'copy'.
