Nero 7 Backup

This software appears to offer Complete System Backup. Has anyone used this with an External Hard Drive? I need to Save a Vista Backup. Without upgrading to Ultimate.I am aware of Acronis Backup after seeing recomendations on the Forums,but have Nero and do not want to create any conflicts between the two.

If you want a good, easy to run cloning program, try XXClone. It is free and can clone a hard disk to an external USB disk or to an internal disk, click here

Click ‘Download’ in the left pane and select the freeware package version. It is intended for single installations, not multiple boots, that use BOOT.INI.

Here are a few tips on running the program:
It’s best to close down any other running programs before starting. Make sure you select the correct Target Volume. Before clicking Start to do the cloning process, go to the Cool Tools Tab > Make Bootable and tick/run all three ‘options’ (Write MBR, Write Boot Sector and Write BOOT.INI). There is a ‘Duplicate Volume ID‘ option, which may be required by some AV programs that check for changes.

When you insert and boot the cloned disk, XXClone starts up and displays a Congratulations message, indicating that the cloning was successful.
