    About AE.
    I'm asking: has anybody got experience with AE and imaging?
    (might have been addressed elsewhere ??)

    Is AE compatible with imaging tools?
    Can an admin user of AE ( or 'authorised user) stop the services to allow Imaging?
    Is it necessary to do so ?

    Thx

    Hi Longboard,

    I have a simple answer though probably not the one you are looking for. I use "cold imaging" with a cdrom from Acronis True Image and image at boot up within a program default linux environment. This way, I can image any partition, protected or not, without worrying about Windows and its drivers.

    Take care,
    SourMilk out

    You won't have any problem with sector based imaging apps since they do not care about the files but only about the occupied sectors.

    File based backups on the other hand is a different story.
