    The latest version of BootIt BM is interesting. The scripting support means you don't need an extra DOS partition to run auto restores/backups. The auto restore/backup can be initiated from Windows or from BootIt.

    If you desire you can have BootIt run an auto restore/backup at 3am while you are asleep.

    Would BootIt be better for installing a new disk drive?
    Im getting my data HD replaced and I was originally going to use IFW to create image of it and then restoring once I installed the new drive.

    Nekromantik,

    Both apps will work well. I prefer BootIt if the new HD is larger than the old or if you want to make partition changes.

    Install the new HD and leave it as unallocated space.
    Use the BootIt Copy/Paste buttons to clone the partitions one at a time. The advantage of this is you can choose the target partition size before the cloning starts. So if you are using a larger new HD you can make each partition larger as you go. This can be done in IFW but I find BootIt easier.

    If the new HD is the same size as the old HD I'd use the Copy Entire Drive feature in IFW.

    any ideas on how long it would take to backup a 500gb partition using standard or enhanced compression?

    I only got 170GB free on my external USB drive which is only place I can keep the backup.

    The question is : what space is used on the partition you want to backup. Try counting that the compressed size will be ~75% of the used space.

    on my 4 years old computer it takes about 4 minutes to back up about 13 GB of data.

    therefore on my machine, i'd be looking at about 2 1\2 hours for a 500 GB job...

    Anyone know the correct options to restore mbr in IFW/IFD/IFL?
    I fumble around and find it and other times I don't. ;(

    Apathy... do a RESTORE (Normal) and when you get to the final options page, select "Restore First Track." In the following data field these are the options...

    AUTO = all of Track 0 (incl. MBR) but it leaves the partition table alone (doesn't restore that part of the MBR) as well as the disk signature and some other disk status bits... all MBR executable code is restored, though. This would be used if restoring to a different disk than the one that was imaged, and I believe is the DEFAULT restoration directive.

    0= All of Track 0 verbatim (incl. MBR... this would be used for restoration to the same disk as imaged... assuming partition changes haven't been made since the backup)

    1-63= incremental # of blocks from Track 0 verbatim.

    If you just want the MBR, use a data value of 1 (the MBR is the first block of Track 0).

    apathy,

    By all means know how to do it but it makes no difference whether you restore it or not. Unless you have a custom MBR.

    I meant 500gb of used data from a 1.5TB HD.
    I will try this when I get home next week.
    If it takes too long I will just have to connect new drive up and transfer manually ha ha
