I use Acronis True Image to make full backups of my system. It allows for a full backup to an external drive or cloning of one disk to another. I have had very good luck with it.

Guess I should have looked around a little before buying Acronis

This free one is like version 10. It's good, but you no doubt have a newer version with more features

Recently upgraded to version 11, better integration into Windows 7 but I miss the UI of 10.

Oky none of this looks like a definite chance to me bur HDClone does though what you think of this i can get the professional edition. My friend has it, and I just want know it has an option Drive to Drive so you clone it but I want to know how does this program clone your HD wile you are still using some of the program and services?

Good question, I guess only a software engineer or an extreme level geek could break down the nuts and bolts of it. But I can say it is a quick process. Backup about 9 min, recovery to a clean disk about 15.

Don't know what you mean by "none of this looks like a definite chance"? But all the programs I listed will clone a hard drive, which is what I thought you wanted?

Damm that doesn't sounds right to me I want to back up my whole 320gig HD with all its programs and music and everything so when I am done and i plug out my 320gig and put in the cloned one everything must be the same, that is all I want just a clone of the whole hard-drive, my fiend says he got a bootable CD with it... Read this maybe someone can tell me hoe to do this with this program

Does Windows 7 install and works perfectly with 512 MB RAM?
I'd installed windows XP about 3 months ago because of a faulty RAM, and now would like to switch back to Windows 7. And now I have only 512 MB of RAM left. So, my question is that will windows 7 handle 512 MB perfectly or will it run slowly?
