    7 X64

    Hi Shawn,

    I have been using Macrium Reflect free edition disk imaging program on x64 - works great.

    FREE Great Programs for Windows 7-reflect-time2008-12-21_215131.jpg

    The paid edition does a few extra things, but this is what you get in the free one :

    Disk Imaging

    * Create a single backup file of a complete hard disk
    * Create a single backup file of one or many partitions
    * Restore a partition to a different type. e.g. a logical partition can be restored as a bootable primary partition
    * Resize the restored partition. A hard disk upgrade can easily be performed by increasing the partition to fill the new disk.
    * Track 0 (The Master Boot Record) is saved with all backups.
    * Backup files can be saved to local or network drives or optical storage (CD, DVD).
    * Disk image can be created whilst Windows is in use.
    * Verify images. Images (Backup files) can be separately verified or automatically verified before restore.
    * System files such as ‘pagefile.sys’ and ‘hiberfile.sys’ are not included in the image.
    * Three compression levels can be selected to optimize between file size and speed.
    * Password protect images to prevent unauthorized access.
    * AES 256 bit encryption for ultimate security.
    * Set image filenames automatically.
    * Browse the backup file as a virtual hard drive in Windows Explorer and copy& paste back any files/folders to any location.

    Scheduling Features

    * Schedule daily, weekly or monthly.
    * Unattended completion.
    * Automatic disk space management for local / remote hard drives.
    * Full logging of all backup operations.

    It will also create a bootable disc so you can restore an image of your drive, partition, mbr if you can't boot into Windows.

    The normal compression ratio is half the original , and just look at the speed it imaged my Vista drive ( pic. above ) - and that was to another partition on the same hd.

    I have also successfully restored both my o/s partitions - again from a backup image on the same hd in 10-12 mins.

    here's the link - registration is free.

    Hi Nigel,

    I am using it on 6801 and Vista x64 - the installer contains both 32 and 64bit program - it detects which you are using and installs the correct one. :)

    Should work on any Windows o/s.
