What do people use to make bitwise image backups of their system disk, so it can be recovered standalone in the event of a catastrophic failure?
My System Disk is a 128Gb SSD, so I could easily fit a number of generations of backup in my 4Tb external (USB) enclosure.
Ideally, the backup utility could be scheduled to create daily/weekly/monthly backups (perhaps via "Scheduled Tasks" if the backup has a command-line interface).
I'd prefer a bootable CD for the recovery mechanism, so that would need to support external USB drives. I know a dedicated memory stick might be neater, but I'm not sure I'd be able to find something like that when I'm in a panic; I know where my pile of "Useful CDs" is.
