How to create HDD Image?

OSNN One Post Wonder

Hi, Like to know whether it is possible to create disk image for backup?
Incase, if i have to format my OS then i can directly install from backup.

More Clearly-
os - xpsp1+some install apps+my setting

If i can backup the whole things as disk image, then i can easily recover my whole things in one shot after format & also much time will be saved.

thx;- seeetu.

you can either do this is dos, by having two drives connected, or you need a program like norton ghost, or others to ghost the image to cd's or dvd's.

I suggest norton ghost. If you don't have one get a cd re-writer and re-writable disks.

I have an image on a partition named backup of windows drive, and image made to this drive also backing up my downloads drive and the same thing for media drive.

I also created on DvD's a smaller image months ago just incase of HD failure.

Norton ghost it's mustard.

Ghost.

Buy last years edition of Norton System Works Pro, save money, make a backup and get a year of AV.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
