In my PC days I used an application called Norton Ghost, it took care of all the boot sectors/serial numbers etc. A 100% image of your old system.
I just finished completely restoring Vista on the PC; plus all updates and installs. With the issues I had to go through this time around I think I'd rather not have to again.
Is anyone here familiar with "imaging" a hard drive? I would like to make an immediate backup, on hard drive, of what I have now on my 320-gig (only on a 500-gig hard drive), but I have never performed an image before.
Will this effectively take care of the start/boot sectors as well? Which software is easiest/most recommended?
Any advice appreciated.
