    Disk imaging

    What's the latest on disk imaging? Better than reformatting/reinstalling using individual programs and operating system? You guys recommend any programs commercial/free?

    I usually do one computer at a time, and as I seldom have groups of identical hardware on the networks I work on, I have never cloned a disc or disc image. Even the ones that are the same have different types of equipment hooked to them, so I treat them as individuals.
    However, most hard drives bought new have the software on cd contained with them to do this.

    You would find this a useful tool in the case of churing out multiple, like hardware, computers.
    There is a slew of free software out there to do the various transfers you would be apt to do, if you don't like the hd supplied types.

    If you are talking about just pulling an old failing drive from your computer and inserting a new one, I still would rather start with a fresh install. If you are just adding more storage and hate to deal with a reload, just add the drive and go, partitioning it as you wish.
