Ghosting a Hard Drive



What program do you guys/gals recomend to ghost a hard drive. I was told I should ghost my hard drive. What is it and how does it work? Thanks for any information -j- Does it make a copy in the hard dive or to a disk?


To ‘ghost’ a drive is to make an exact copy of it onto another drive. There are commercial programs from Acronis, Norton, etc. which will do this for you. You will need two hard drives. They also allow you to backup your drive to CD/DVD, but this is a bit different from ‘ghosting’. If you would like to try a freeware program check out this link for a tutorial on using Driveimage XML.
