I need to clone 10 different pcs hard disks, so that I can quickly recover them in the event of a disaster, or migrate them to another pc.
Does anyone use a product that would do this and if so how good is what you are using in your experience?
All the pc's are running Windows XP.

    I used Acronis Migrate Easy and everything went just great.

    There are several good disk cloning programs, like Norton Ghost, Acronis, etc,
    I always use Active@diskimage because it´s much faster than the other programs.

    Do these products allow me to use them for multiple pc's, or are they 1-pc licences?
