What software would you recommand for making images of harddrives (like ghost) but not having to restart the server you want to image?

Hi jkosempa :)

Ghost can be found in two versions. e.g the pack i bought had Ghost 2003 and Ghost 9.0.

Ghost 2003 is a DOS version, and Ghost 9.0 is a Windows Version. The Windows version can be used to make images of a live system without having to reboot into DOS mode.

The initial image requires a reboot, but then you can do images every hour (or whatever interval) with the server running.  LIFESAVER!

There are many versions, I linked to the most expensive one... other links at the bottom of that page.

Thanks!
