I take care of about 10 to 12 clients that occasionally mess up their systems with bad software, viruses, spyware ect. I usually take hours to re-set their systems with all the custom software, email, network settings, even multilingual support. I charge them for it of course, $45/hr but I also work at a University and do not always have the time to fix their systems when they want. Whenever I go to fix their system I always wondered if one of those "one touch" USB external drives might be part of a solution. Some of them are offering large capacities now, enough to hold images of all my clients (I always set them up with 30 to 40 GB system partitions and leave the rest for data) So I would like to do the following. Go to each client and make a drive image using Acronis TI Put that image on my external USB drive Do the same for all of my clients Use Acronis TI and create a CD boot image Set this boot image up as the bootable partition on my USB drive Whenever a client needs a complete re-install, just bring the external drive Use clients computer to boot to external drive, choose the appropriate image, and restore. My question is could I do this? And, if I could, would I need to purchase a seperate license of Acronis TI for each client? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, simusphere and myluvnttl have already contributed some valuable advice and one of the reasons I lean to using ATI is because of the strong and active forum support.
