Lets say mission critical laptop dies because either : a) hard drive fails or Windows fails badly and needs installed again b) some other laptop hardware failure How can you help protect against this with TI? I could try cloning the disk monthly and if disk fault happens, hopefully boot from the external hard drive clone (via USB)? But then again maybe not as Windows XP does not like hardware changes. What about images instead of clones? I'm somewhat confused by the difference between images and cloning. To me an image is something created when you make a clone. But it seems with TI there is some larger distinction. TKS in advance.
