Hi, i dont know much about burning an image of my hard drive, am i right in thinking that if i get my friend to format my hard drive or replace it with a quicker/bigger one i can then put all my data AND programmes back on using the image file??

Just put the image on the same or new drive. However the image will be exactly as what you had on your HDD when it was imaged.

Which imaging program are you using?

I suggest Acronis True Image

If you definately want to format your drive,you will have to place your image on,lets say,an external drive.But why format if your image is going to put it all back again?
