Not sure exactly how it works but from what I have understand, I should not have to re-install anything that was on the computer at the time I created the disk image. Is that correct?.
I also have a win 7 computer and have used the build in tool to create an image, but haven't tried the restore so don't know if it works.
I don't think XP has a built in imaging tool, just the backups. I can do the backups but really would like to be able to create an image file. Can anyone suggest a good imaging program for XP that is either free or at least not too expensive - definitely less than $50.00. less if possible. I don't want to pay too much. It is an older computer and if it is going to cost too much, I'll just trash the computer if the hard drive crashes again. I would like something that is simple to use. Don't need a lot of options, just create an image of the whole drive. I did some google searches and tried to research the software but got confused. Would appreciated it if you have suggestions. Maybe I am asking too much to find what I want - simple too use and cheap or free.
