Have a hard drive with a windows XP OS install on it with a software package for a machine. the software package costs about 30,000 to make and we have no install copies for it anymore. (thanks to my predecessor).

What application would you recommend or like the most for imaging harfdrives to another hard drive or a image file.

Re: what do yoyu like best for drive imaging?

Acronis True Image and Norton Ghost are two popular choices. Take your pick.
I personally use Acronis for my machines, and I have no complaints.

I swap regularly between Ghost and Acronis, as they both offer advantages - depends on the task at hand pretty much.

For what you need, either one will be sufficient and worthwhile ;)

If they are both WD drives just use WD Tools. Free and works perfectly.

Not sure if seatools provides imaging.

Acronis, not big on Windows myself, but I've used it quite a bit for backing up my machine when playing with OS's. I really like the incremental backups and the ability to mount those incremental backups in both read and write mode.

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
