What is a reliable Imaging software for Vista ?
« on: August 10, 2007, 09:40:23 AM »
I'm trying to setup a laptop (that comes with Vista pre-installed).

After installing all the various utilities, printers and making other changes, I normally like to take a ("pure and unadulterated") image in case it gets messed up later on, so that I can revert to its pristine state easily.

Anyone here have any experience with a imaging software that runs on Vista ?

Thanks

Acronis TrueImage is what I use to create images for backup purposes.

If you happen to own a Seagate drive (either internal or external), you may get a decent image tool for free: DiscWizard (which is a basic lite version of TrueImage)

Acronis TrueImage Home 10 is also what I use. In fact, I purchased it for my new Vista system. I've since run into some issues, and I'm not alone. You may want to investigate a little before deciding whether it's good for your environment. See my post in the other thread for more information.
