Hello Experts,

I have used Cobian, NTBackup and Paragon Software to implement backkups on Microsoft platforms.

Is there a freeware software similar to Paragon Software that can capture the image of the system?

Here are items that would be on my wishlist for the software:
1. Emails notificaton of completion of backup with status
2. WishList - makes a bare metal backup so you can put an HP backup on a Dell or vice versa..
3. Manages jobs easily so you can tell it to retain x copies for per the schedule.  For example, I like to perform daily backups and keep 7 copies, weekly backups and keep 4 copies, monthly backups and keep 3 copies, etc..
