We have some old machines that are running old software and old drivers and would be very expensive to replace. The issue is that these machines are 15 years old and we are worried that they are going to fail soon.
We also don't want to turn them off for fear they won't start up again. We would like to know if there is software out there that will back up the entire C drive while it is being used so we can have a replacement hard drive if the old one should fail. We can't find software that was supported by windows 95 and was able to do a backup without a restart. If there is another way that we are not thinking about let us know. Otherwise our only option is to pull the hard drive it copy it bit for bit to another one and hope that when we put the old hard drive back in it will work. Some of these machines haven't been turned of in 5 years.

Those all require restarting the computer and we'd like to avoid that if possible.

okay, what about one with a free license for business. I know it's asking for a lot. I may be able to get the company to buy it but free is better.

I found two from the top link you showed me. One is DriverGrabber which only backs up the drivers which could be useful. The other is DiskImage and I will test them to see how well they work for us. Thanks for the help.
