I have just purchased True image 11 with a view to safeguarding my system by having everything copied and would appreciate some advice. 1. If I make an image of my hard drive does this copy all my installed programs so that there is no need to re-install them. 2. I had originally thought of cloning my HD but if I did this onto my portable HD (Buffalo Ministation) would I be able to transfer all this back to my computer's HD in the event of a major catasrophe.
