Hello,

In our organization, we used FOG as a backup and restore solution.  Recently, our Parent Organization changed our network policies, and is not allowing any of our Linux based servers to continue working, (Very Lame.)

Does anyone know of any free windows based solutions that would perform similarly to FOG, or Ghost?

Thanks

Hi

Have you ever checked out Hiren's BootCD?  Everytime a question like this comes up I think of it.  There are many more free utilities included.  Here's a link to the web site:

Have fun!

HDClone is a good one. It has 3 versions, including a free one. Take a look here:

I am looking for something with more of a Server/Client side.  FOG uses PXE with a server to image. Are there any free available imaging tools that would have this functionality?

Thanks

Yes .. you are right.  I can see the link at the bottom of the page with the size of the file, but it appears to be disabled.

I just did a search on "download Hiren's BootCD 9.8" and got several hits.  When get the right one, you'll burn it directly to a CD.

If this doesn't help or you still have questions, I'll check back.

Does clonezilla also run off of windows?  I only thought that it ran off of Linux as a host OS.
