Default Best backup solution? - 04-17-2009, 11:50 PM

Somehow I managed to pull off the triple boot thing and I need to image the drive just in case. What is the best method?

I'm imaging the Mini's SSD to/from bootable 16GB USB flash drive created using Ghost Solution Suite... AFAIK, Acronis is able to accomplish the same but with a little more work involved creating the bootable USB drive.

Hmm, I have a 64GB SSD. I would like to utilize an old 80GB USB external for the image.

Acronis True Image Home works wonderfully drive imaging (AND restoring). It compresses the backup along with eliminating the page file so file size is about 1/4 - 1/3 full OS install.
