    "Great way to make an image of your hard drive"

    October 11, 2013  |   By fred_66f


    This is a professional program that works well. It is a great way to make an image of your hard drive. I have burned images to DVD and saved to a USB drive. You can create a restore disk that can boot and restore your image.


    When trying to restore using the boot disk, I had some trouble using the simple restore program. The restore worked fine using the full version of the program.


    Now that Microsoft is going to kill off XP, it is time to save a good image of your XP computer. If your computer gets a virus or just starts running poorly in the future, you will not be able to reinstall XP. If you save an image, you can restore that image any time and have your PC back to normal.
