Can I create an image of C drive

  emmandelo1 22:28 24 Oct 2004

The other day I had to completely reinstall Win XP on my computer. Not too bad a problem as having followed all the advice on here I had backed up everything important. It still took some time though to reinstall some of my apps and re-estblish links with the registry etc.. My question is this. Now I have the machine running nicely is there any way I can copy the whole of C drive onto another drive. Then, if I have to reinstall windows again in the future is there some way I could then copy the saved C drive back onto C drive overwriting the new installation and reverting back to the original.

Yes I use Drive Image 7 but that is no longer available.

But Norton Ghost 9 and Acronis True Image is something you should look at.

Drive Image or Norton Ghost are probably the most popular programs for creating a drive image.

Thanks. I have Drive Image 2002 but have never installed it. Is it really as simple as I made out in my original question?

I too use Drive Image 7. Is there a new version out, or have they done away with it altogether?

I have dug through this pile of CD's I have here and it's Drive Image 6 that I have. I assume this will do what I want.

install it . Ive used it on various systems its never let me down yet . you may have the windows unsupported drive issue ,but creating the rescue discs usually solves that.

As usual a quick and positive response to my question. What would I do without this place....
I will go ahead and install it. Cheers..

Symantec have bought out Powerquest on December 5th 2003.
It is however still supported and the latest patch is available at click here but as it is over 50 mb in length it will take a while on dial-up!

Drive Image 7 has been discontinued but it's technology has been put into Norton Ghost 9 and they've added a few things as well to it.
