Hi all, I'm looking for a free utility like Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, dc3

I've never used it myself but Digital Dolly is a freeware imaging utility.

Thanks Budapest, I had completely forgotten about digital dolly, Acklan had sent me a copy a couple of years ago! I will dig it out and give it a try.

If there is a Seagate or Maxtor drive in the system you are enitled to download and use the Seagate DiskWizard utility - a licenced Acronis TrueImage 10.

Unfortunately Digital Dolly does not work with SATA drives. But since there are plenty EIDE it is still a great program to have on hand.

Hi Acklan, I'm still using an old 200GB Maxtor PATA drive so it's all good. :thumbsup:
