I was finally able to get Drive Snapshot to work for UBCD. Thank you very much for that suggestion. But, in an effort to no longer hijack the 'frontend' thread I wanted to start a new one. I must say I love DS. I like the fact that I can have everything I could ever need on one DVD; the restore software, backup images, custom folders, etc. That's awesome!! But I was wondering a couple of things about DS. 1. Is the registration data help in the system or in the actual DS .exe. That makes a difference in terms of portability. 2. Image for DOS has the ability to set restored partitions as active. That can be very important when dealing with system partitions. I see no such options with DS. Should that be an area of concern? 3. There has been a lot of talk in other threads about DS, especially 1.39, having the ability for 'bare metal' restores. I define that as being able to restore an active partition image to completely different hardware than when the image was created. Is that the case with DS 1.39. Thanks.
