    I have Raxco 3.21 Build 205 . To do a Ghost image do I need to Disable Pre-Boot. My understanding is that with this build I don't need to. I just want to be sure.

    I never disabled Pre-boot with any Image Backup software, I used. Never had a problem with any version of FDISR either.
    Disabling Pre-boot is something from the past, long ago.

    Thank you Erik. It is kind of confusing because if you click on Disable Pre-Boot it tells you that you need to disable before using any imaging software to make a bootable cpoy of you system.

    Thank you guys for the info. I just had a good scare. I was doing a Ghost image to an external SATA drive and had to go somewhere. When I came home my darling wife informed me I had a problem. She had wanted to use the computer and had it messed up. The image had finished she said and I don't know what she did but it didn't look good. I managed to get things working and luckily I didn't say too much. While it was messed up I couldn't boot to a different snap shot. Now all is fine.

    ROFL. Wise to remain silent, and just fix it.
