  1. Wow very cool! Unfortunately I already bought and use Norton Ghost-> so i already have backup images in Ghost Format.
    To anybody interested In backing up there computer, pay close attention to this program and listen to the people posting here on its actual creditability.
    Note: this is not the average Backup or restore program! This is a backup “IMAGE” program. This meens that it will copy ‘byte by byte’ everything you tell it to-> or easily just select the whole drive. There is no way to get your computer “truley” back to its origonal state, unless you use a program lke this! yup, every byte from every sector! Windows restore, and other types of backup software that don’t record a “byte image” are a joke. By restoring an “image” a person doesnt even need to defragment their drive afterwards-> unless it needed it first before it was backed up. By reading the description, it appears to have more options then my Norton Ghost! To bad thou, cause I already have tons of Ghost images-> and gotta stick with that.
    The price is $40. Thats what I paid for Ghost. You guys get this FREE? don’t pass it up.
