    thanks
    it's very trusty program
    but does not the new version still respect the bitmap in the restore process ?

    i mean the program does a consolidation during the restore , and does respect the bitmap , in short i have to defrag every time after a restore
    for example if you have data like movies in the more slow part of the partition , after a restore you will find in the fast zone ,due the consolidation (a defrag during the restore):thumbd:

    mantra,

    That's what I like in an imaging app. Something that restores the sectors to the same relative LBA.

    Which apps have you used that do a "defrag" when you restore an image? I know DOS Ghost does this. Also some older versions of True Image. Any others?

    in my experience for sure the active disk image "great program by the way"(not sure about v5)
    acronis true image v9 and v10 and v11 olde version don't "defrag" during the restore
    paragon is perfect , it makes a pefect copy (not defrag)

    you can move some file with mydefrag free or ultimate defrag (there is a free version too ,old version) in a place of the partition "outer" , make an image and restore it
    use my defrag or ultimate defrag and you can see it

    mantra and Brain,

    Thanks for your info! :D

    But as I know, in Ghost 11 you can add a parameter to use sector-by-sector copy. I am not sure Ghost 2003 can do this or not.
