    Does anyone know of an imaging app with the following features?

    1.) Boot CD allows network access from a management console (i.e. push image from console machine to CD booted machine)
    2.) If incremental image not found, will auto create full image
    3.) Allows scheduling on a monthly basis (first, last sunday, etc.)
    4.) Multiple partitions are imaged to a single backup file
    5.) Images can be mounted
    6.) H.I.R.
    7.) SID reset
    8.) SSD hardware support

    B&R 10/11 is too bloated/buggy. Shadow Protect spits out too many random VSS errors on workstations with SQL.

    sk7v2,

    I'm a home user, not business, but I can do your first 6 points. I can do point 1 even better. Push an image to a remote computer without the need for a CD in the remote computer.

    I'm using TeraByte Unlimited apps.

    Very interesting. I'm going to edit the list for a #8, can you image to SSD?
    Is there a link you could direct me to so I may trial this app?

    sk7v2,

    No problem with SSDs.

    The apps are in modules. I image with IFW, do network restores with IFL and do HIR with TBOSDT.

    Edit... You mentioned Sysprep. TBOSDT can do an equivalent driver removal after the image has been restored to different hardware. Sysprep needs to be done before the image has been created.
