Imaging live server drives

Hi Everyone,

Is there a software out there that will let me take an image of server drives while they're live? I know Acronis Live is pretty good, pretty expensive. Anything out there good and more affordable?

Thanks,

Theo

Paragon has cheaper and better tools than Acronis, but the best available is ShadowProtect:

Acronis is great

Symantec System Recovery is the software I use for live imaging of servers. and is my personal favorite.

Is about $900 USD but there is a 35% discount on competitive upgrades if you are already using something else.

All four products mentioned are roughly equivalent in functionality.

Paragon is the cheapest but for the purposes of technical support, reliability, and ongoing development I would suggest Symantec or Acronis.
