    Could someone tell me if they know of a good hard drive image program (that will work with ME/XP) that I can still use without disabling Symantec's GoBack?

    I do not want to disable GoBack because for one it takes about 2 hours to do it, and I don't want to lose it's protection for even one minute because it has just saved me too many times.

    I've heard you cannot run Symantec's Ghost along with GoBack, so I'm looking for a HD image program that will work without having to disable GoBack. Is this possible?

    The HD image program does not have to run all the time, in fact it would probably be better if it didn't. All I want to do is to have a few HD images that I could restore (from a second internal hard drive) incase of any problems. I wouldn't be doing constant HD image backups with the program, just every once in a while. Thanks so much for any help.

    Note that running GoBack in the background will constantly place a load on your hard drive and sap the performance of your PC. If you imaged your OS prior to any hardware/software modification, then you will probably never have to rely on GoBack to repair the system. A modern PC can image 600MB of data in one minute.

    Bootit ng is an excellent imaging program that will work with GoBack. It runs OUTSIDE of windows. Therefore, there is nothing to interfere with GoBack when you're in windows. Try the full version for free during the first 30 days. The $35 package comes with a drive partitioning software.
