I've backed up and restored Windows 7 with Acronis True Image, if that's what you mean.

Thanks David

I have tested it and restored a complete image using the Win 7 DVD. Its quite impressive too so I wont be needing Acronis in future.

I have it on Ultimate - I think it is only on Pro and Ult. In any case I prefer the familiar ATI 2010.I see Zeppelyn likes it though and will watch and wait - I did run it once and it seemed to take ages and use a lot of space.

It was actually pretty quick doing a restore of my C and D drives which totalled 41Gb and the back up size was 31Gb. Im using Win 7 Home Premium and its included.

Many thanks for all of your comments, one thing that I am unclear of is it possible to recover a single folder or must you recover the lot.
By way I replied to this much earlier but it seems that I clicked the clear button instead and not for the first time either.

Thanks for confirming that it looks like W7 Image backup is on ALL W7 versions. I must admit I have used ATI for the last 6-7 years and its been brilliant. Thanks David

I can't comment on the Win7 B/U utility, but Acronis TI allows one to restore individual files (e.g. you can mount an image so that it appears like another disk drive and navigate through it to retrieve individual files and / or folders).
