    Hey all,

    I'm a backup addict. I fill terabyte drives with numerous backups
    of all the pc(s) on my network. I am sure most of you know
    the best and most reliable backup apps out there but for those
    who don't you get a nice treat!

    All of these I've used for a while now and never had any issues:

    Bare Metal Solutions:

    Image for Windows/Image For Linux/BootItNG
    Shadow Protect

    Linux backup apps:

    Back In Time
    , is a Linux app which is a rsync gui that works very well and very reminiscent of MacOs's TimeMachine
    Unison, Linux file synchronization software that works really well over ssh/samba/nfs
    Remastersys, roll out your own live cd with your own modifications

    All of these backup apps I have used for some time and they haven't failed me yet. I regularly use I4L/I4W/ShadowProtect and trust in them. I had heard that they made a Linux version of ShadowProtect but it was only for one distro.

    If you have something to add to this list feel free..

    I am curious to know what your definition of "bare metal" is. There seem to be to general view on this; either it means that there doesn't need to be anything but the basic hardware needed to restore, or it means that the ability to restore an image is hardware independent. When you say that IFW is a "bare metal" solution what do you mean? As I understand it, IFW is not able to restore images independent of hardware in an of itself.
