Was thinkinking of using Image for windows/Image for dos as my imaging software of choice over ghost or acronis but after reading endless posts I'm still confused as ever. I have a fear about long file names not being trunkated correctly, plus I'm also worried about creating an image of my entire disk set up the way I have now that has and admin AND limited user acct but no passwords set up for either. Will this cause a problem? I read that if you don't setup a password with your admin and user accounts your CD rom access gets denied when trying to take image off external USB drive back to native host drive. Is that true? HEEEELLLLPPP!!! Plus I was reading about Norton Ghost 9+ and above about it changing the MBR to solve a drive rename issue and was wondering if I that is a reason not to consider using it as an image software with FDISR? I'm looking to see which of the products works best and now I have Bootit NG seems like a better choice than the IFD/IFW. So many choice and so much reading my eyes are hurting.... Decisions decisions... I have an AMD64 Hp laptop 3500+ I've rebuilt from scratch lean with FD-ISR just installed and now I want to do a backup to an external drive and wondering which imaging software to pic to backup to a USB 2.0 250 GB external HDD.
