After reading a writeup I'm thinking of getting this program, however looking at the postings on this it looks as if a few people are having trouble! Anyone using it without trouble, please?Also my hard drive has three partitions i.e.C,D,E. I'm assuming that an image of C can be put onto D, which is large enough, is that correct please?.
You could use a programme like Acronis (which was free on a recent coverdisk) you can image it to CDs, but it takes 6 or 7 CDs. Trying to "image" it to another hard disk, the disk needs to be empty otherwise the image will overwrite what it already on there.
pj123...Thanx, I won't bother, I don't want to lose whats on the D drive. Will have to stay with System Restore methinks. Although, come to think of it I could save all the D stuff to disk then put it back after drive image has done with the drive. Remember, it's a drive I'm thinking of saving to, not another hard disk! What do you think?
Just to clarify things here as you seem to be under a misapprehension - Drive Image doesn't 'image' the whole drive, it creates an image file of the USED space.[and that image is compressed by up to 50%].
So, for example, if your C drive were 10 gb in total with 5gb used, then drive image will create an image file[at 50% compression] of 2.5gb. This file can be stored anywhere,other than the C drive, just like any other file.It can also be split-up during the creation process into CDR-sized chunks and burnt at once or later using, say, Nero.
