Default Recommendations for Drive Image Software - 10-19-2008, 11:32 AM

Has anybody come up with a good solution for drive imaging your mini? I don't want to spend 90 megs of hard drive space to install Acronis home, which is great, but big. I'd really like to have something that would run from usb thumb drive, and let the image go to a usb hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.

If you already have Acronis, set up the backup software to a USB Stick/SD Card, save to external HD/Network.

Acronis TrueImage 11 worked fine for me. I could not get Norton Ghost 14's recovery disk to recognize the Mini's SSD.

Mine works fine. Maybe you should get older editions of Ghost.

I bought Acronis True Image Home 2009 and was able to create a bootable USB. I've made two different images of the Mini now; one with just Windows XP on the entire drive and one that is a dual boot of Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.10.
Works fantastically.
