  • Good app to make a ghost of my HDD

    Hey guys,

    My laptop came back from maintenance earlier this week, and im looking into a good program from which i could make a ghost of my HDD and burn it to a CD. So i can be able to format using that CD and not the CD provided by Dell.

    I'm asking because my laptop came back with vista installed, but with no all the other junk DELL preinstalls on your computer when you buy it (trial, programs, etc...). If I format from the CD they gave me, I get to uninstall all that crap.

    So I'd just like to be able to make a ghost of my HDD to be able to use it to format in the future.


    Thanks,
    Xmaster

    I use vista ultimate's complete PC backup. It's quite awesome.

        A friend of mine just lent me Acronis True Image 2009. Just tried it moments ago. I knew about ghost but Im not fond of having an app running in the background taking system ressources. You just boot with Acronis CD and make your image from there. took me about 20 mins.

            I use this. Works for me (and it's tiny).
