    hi all,

    Everytime I have to format a PC I have to go through the same process again and again, reinstalling OS, install software (Office pdf reader etc etc) adding the PC to a domain again and so on.

    So what I want to do is like having a image to which I can just restore to any drive and have a basic installation in order to save time and effort, how can I do this? Will a normal backup software do this like Ghost or Acronis?

    any help would be really appreciated :D

    Acronis TrueImage can make a Clone or Image file of the entire drive....the image file is quite large but will have everything on the image file so you can restore it....I have a backup on my W7 and Vista
