  • How to back up carputer HDD?

    What is the best way to make an image of my carputer's Hard drive? Is it possible to make a bootable CD that will restore the computer HDD to a certain config, just like compaq / HP restore disks?

    I love this product does just what you need it to do http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/
    it will restore your drive in about 10 min (depending on size of disk)

      you can do that with norton ghost, you can either make an image of the drive and put it on a cd, and have it restore it, or even have it on a USB memory stick depending on size. you can also make another partition on the drive, and put the ghost file there, and then use a CD/Floppy disk/USB Drive with the Ghost software and dos boot on it to reimage the partition.

        How they do that anyway? I know that the "restore" disks HP makes are using Norton ghost but how do they make them autoplay or shall I say "autorestore"?

          with a little script, its called a boot script, its like dos, trueimage makes a bootdisk for you so you dont have to boot into windows to restore and its a better gui than ghost
