Computer backup solution?? Software dillema

Post by Kingtal0n » Mon Apr 16, 2007 9:19 pm

I own two computers, I want to buy an external USB hard drive and image/copy the entire hard drives from my computers onto this one big external drive.

I Want to be able to copy over the entire thing, including software and all my misc. crap.

What software do you recommend for this? And will I have to partition my external for 2 images 1 for each computer I am backing up?

My computers have 120GB and 80GB drives, So i was gonna get a 250gb external.

I use Acronis TrueImage Workstation. Best harddrive imaging software I've found to date.

It will image ANY OS I've ever ran here (NT4, 2000, XP, XPx64, Server 2003, and Linux).

Ghost just isn't what it used to be unfortuantly.
