Hello everyone,

I looking for a free ghosting/cloning/imaging software.  I have seen Macrium Reflect free edition.  Is there a program out there that can image a machine and place the image onto a server, similar to the way Symantec Ghost works?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Clarification- image save on to a server and pulled from that same server for imaging a computer.

Why not use Microsoft's tools.  Extensive (and because they are so extensive, may take a little practice to get used to), but COMPLETELY FREE*

Windows Deployment Services (WDS; Free of additional fees - included as a role in Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 - also in 2003 but without multicasting)
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT; 100% free of license fees - deceptively small download - requires the WAIK (below) which is huge)
Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK or Windows AIK; 100% free of license fees)

And I've left out the planning and application related tools like Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP) and the Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT)
