Image Your Hard Drive For Restore & Backup



When you install an operating system or you have formatted your hard drive and you have things exactly the way you want why not image your hard drive.

If you take an image of your hard drive you can then restore it to the exact state when you took the " image"

This is especially good if things go wrong.
