Best option to backup an entire image to an external hard drive?
Posted on 2006-06-01
I have a Maxtor External Hard Drive and I want to creat automtic backups to it that will capture the entire image of my hard drive. In case of a crash or system failure I want to be able to use this back up to restore everything without the need to re-install my programs, personal settings, etc...
What is the best option for what I'm trying to do?
I've heard of programs like Norton System and Restore (the newer program based on Ghost)
and Acronis TrueImage. Are there any others you would recommend or would one of these likely be the best choice (if so which one of these)?
