    I have a relative who is slightly learning disabled but by no means stupid.
    I think it's called ADD.
    She has a pc with XP on it, moving to W7 in the winter.
    I need an easy to use stable imaging program that I can teach her to use. And I'm not very tech savvy but can follow instructions.
    Thanks for any help.

    Hello

    I use Macrium Free - simple and very reliable.

    Look under Tutorial on that page - a lot of easy walkthroughs.

    Their Help is excellent - Nick et al will speedily help you resolve any issues.

    Your signature indicates you use Shadow Protect Desktop. Why wouldn't you use it for your relative since you are presumably already familiar with it?

    I abandoned Acronis for Shadow Protect a long time ago and have been delighted with its simplicity and stability.

    philby,
    Looks good. I'm going to read through the tutorials before I do anything else.

    LenC,
    Good question. Simple answer is that SP is great software but would not be very easy for her to learn.
    I think it's geared more towards the tech rather than the novice.

    Thanks both of you.

    I don't think you're going to find anything more straightforward than SP.
