    Hi all,

    I'm using Windows 2000 SP4.

    After a major meltdown and reformat I am resolved to implement a backup and restore plan.

    I have a basic set up I like - it rarely changes - of certain software and documents/files structure.

    Okay - help me out here ;)

    Is there a way to completely backup a Windows 2000 installation - with full program, registry and file support - so that if need be it can be restored with one fell swoop?

    I have heard of Norton Ghost but some reviews I read on Version 9 have me a bit skeptical of trying it.

    I sure would appreciate any thoughts on backup plans.

    Thanks

    Imaging your disk is the way to go for what you want. I personally use Acronis True Image. Norton Ghost 2003 is also good. I also have heard bad things about Ghost9. Personally, I stay away from all Symantec programs lately, too much bloat.

    There are a few freeware imaging programs out there you could try but I can't vouch for them as I've never tried them. True Image was worth the price for me. I don't want to scrimp on a program as important as this.
