Hard drive imaging software (norton ghost like)

Hi all,

I am looking for a software product that can help me to backup harddisk by image them, I have norton ghost, it works well with IDE drives and very few of the SCSI, I also tried drive image, same as Norton.

Please advise if there is any better software that can help me to do imaging and works on majority of the SCSI and SATA drives.


Thanks in advance.

Acronis Trueimage will work very well for your situation- including SCSI and SATA support.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Dear PX,
You can also look at symantec live state recovery. with this tool you can even use the same image in disimilar hardwares

Live state is $700 bucks and made for servers.
Ghost 9 is about $59 bucks as is Acronis made for workstations.
