    want to make 'quickrestore' cds for customer computers that are end user friendly
    I know drive image and ghost can do this..but here's the hard part, I want something that's either part of windows itself, or a freeware / adware program to do this
    Basically I want to make these restore CD's legally, and be able to distribute them with new computers without any legal hassles, and without having to shell out for a copy of ghost for each computer, or drive image for each computer. Any input would be appreciated

    DrvImagerXP makes backups (image files) of NTFS and FAT32 drive partition structures (as well as floppy disks), for the Windows 2000/XP operating systems, by copying, byte-for-byte, the drive partition sectors. And when not using file compression, can do this very quickly, much faster than copying files. You'll never have to install your operating system again! You can install it, make all your option changes and get it just right, then use DrvImagerXP to create a partition image that you could name "Fresh Install". If you need to go back to a brand new fresh installation of your operating system, you can restore the partition using the "Fresh Install" image in just a few minutes! You can make partition images of different operating systems and swap them in and out at will! Save floppy disk images for faster copying, or for archives. Save the image file as multiple zipped files. Span an image file over multiple CDs/DVDs. Though not as powerful and flexible as "Drive Image" or "Ghost" drive imaging programs, the simplicity, yet powerful capabilities of DrvImagerXP make it the favorite choice for many. Click a button to download (in the background) the latest DrvImagerXP updates from the Lexun Freeware web site! Also included are tips on using xcopy for many situations where DrvImagerXP is not an option! DrvImagerXP is freeware! Pass it around! Give it to your friends! Featured on TechTV in Australia! People are using it all over the world!

    Seems to be dead.

    And when you remove the file name from the link it redirects to some floral site.

    I'd sure like to hear back if this actually works. I'd like to have something in my pocket after the supply of $10 NSW Pro copies gives out for clients! :D
