Hi, I want to make a image of my hard drive so instead of formatting all the time I can just use a disk image on a dvd restore it, so in a way i will of formatted the computer but my documents and music etc will be replaced back in the places they were.
Now i have tried norton ghost but I have had a lot of problems.
So can anyone please point me in the right direction of some free software that is similar to ghost and will do the same job
Do you mean constant reformatting and reinstallation of Windows etc?
Which version of windows are you using?
If you are only looking to make regular backups of your data and need a free program to do this for you at the click of a mouse, try a download of EZBackitup. In effect this is a batch program where you choose what to copy from a windows explorer style tree, and where to save it, choosing exactly where. After the first run, the whole thing can be repeated whenever... by a click on a green arrow.
i agree with "adman 2",i also use ghost (the only norton program worth using imho) and i never had a problam with it ,also i have never in 7 years had to reformat my drive,as to why people have to keep doing it im dumfounded ???
