I just recently built a new PC, all is well and I have a clean install of Vista configured exactly the way I like it. So I would like to take a bootable restore snapshot of Vista in the event something goes wrong in the future. I have another drive that has all my personal files, email etc. so the OS drive could be wiped and restored and I would be good to go. It also may be good to just to a clean restore every once in awhile so Vista does not get bloated. Now the thing is I used to use Ghost to accomplish this. Older versions of ghost simply had a stand alone program you could launch that would create an image of your drive and span it across multiple cd's and the first cd in the set had everything you need for your restore and was bootable if your OS died. You did not have to install a suite of programs or have a ton of services running all the time. I don't want what the latest version of ghost is about. I do not want to permanently install anything the rides on my pc hogging resources and that boots up before the OS. So anything out there now that will just let me manually create a bootable restore across multiple Dual layer DVD's like the older version of Ghost used to do with cd's? No massive installs no permanant services running all the time etc. I simply want to click on a stand alone .exe file check a box to create a bootable image of an entire drive point the image creation it to my DVD recorder and hit go.
