    After the 3.3 DDOS attack which happened in our country...
    Which destroys hard drives... (did it also happen elsewhere?)
    I definately realized that having a backup&restore software
    (disaster recovery solutions) is a good idea.

    Without explaining the reason, I only got 3 options.
    1. Norton Ghost
    2. Acronis True Image
    3. Windows 7 built-in

    Are these good options?
    I don't want it to be a this vs that thread since it is against the rules here. But I appreciate to have some recommendation by private messages?
    Thanks, and sorry for my poor English.

    I imagine all 3 of those are good options.

    Acronis is the only one I've had personal experience with and it's what I use.
    It's saved my bacon on a couple of occasions, so obviously, I like it and recommend it.

    Paragon is another good one, though it's not on your list.

    Thanks for your reply ABee.
    I did use ATI since when it was v2009.
    But the newest version seems to have problems with my environment.
    It does not boot in Linux (the part where I restore my system)
    So I had to make a Rescue CD which includes the SAFE MODE, because
    I can only boot with the Rescue CD in SAFE MODE (one of the add-on of ATI)
    I wonder if Norton Ghost suites better for me.
    Anyways Thanks again.

    I wouldn't know about any of that, offhand.
    Though I'd imagine the built-in Win7 backup/restore program might not handle whatever Linux environment it is you need backed-up or booted into, either.
    Couldn't say about Norton Ghost. I have no familiarity with that program.

    Good luck.
    I'm sure some other posters will have some workable ideas for you.

    Macrium is another good candidate.

    I gues I'll have to figure it out myself.
    My bad that this thread is dead.
    Thanks to you all who replied. :)
