I'm looking to buy an applicaiton to ghost my laptop's c drive. I've previously used Casper XP and it worked OK but doesn't have any other backup functionality like the ability to backup just parts of my secondary drive.
I'm also looked at Acronis which does a lot more but the cloning section of the manual suggests that it is best to put the copy in situ and have the original in an external drive. This makes no sense if you are attempting to clone your c drive.
Has anyone used Acronis and found it good for this purpose or can anyone suggest a better solution?
