Is there any software out there that will take and all me to make a backup image of a live system? I have a system down and i need to clone a working live system and make an image of it so i can then put it on a harddrive and send to the client.

I thought ghost would do it but i keep getting the good ol force volume lock.

Any software would help thanks! need to make image so i can ftp the image to the home office and burn to harddrive.

Thanks!

You could also look at taking a virtual image of the live system using Disk2VHD

You can then either dump that VHD back to the hard drive of a PC, OR you could run it as a virtual system.
