Need a new free backup software suggestion
I use to use a software for imaging all my systems and now it is apparent that the software cannot handle my needs and environment so I need to replace it with some thing else.
Here is my current set up
I have 5 systems through out my home and a central computer for backups; they are Windows 7, XP and Vista. What I had before was the imaging software loaded on all computers. I would image them to the central computer.
So if a any of the 5 systems go down, I need a rescue disk that will run on that crashed system and then be able to find the image of that system on the network, find it and then reinstall it.
Are there any suggestions for an easy one to use? My older imaging software requires building drivers to the rescue CD to access the network and that to me is a waste of time. I need something that I can;
load to each system
image each computer to the central computer
create the rescue disk
pop in the rescue CD to a crashed system
let it load
drill through the network to the central computer
find the image

The driver issues probably has to do with Microsoft not having a generic driver for the NIC. Most resuce CD's are build off WinPE I know that i had to add my NIC drivers to the my rescue disk in order for it to work.
I would recommend Macrium Reflect free edition. There are topics all over this forum about the software and how to use it.
