Hey Scott, do you have a favorite or recommended hard drive imaging software?. I thought I remembered that around 15 years or so ago you used to recommend Acronis. In my opinion they went downhill though and their software has become extremely bloated...

Acronis is indeed what I used to use. It has been a long time since I've used any disk imaging software. Let me know if you test any and what your opinions are :)

I mainly use file backup software like Robocopy along with Shadowspawn to allow copying files that are in-use. Long ago I used Acronis for imaging, but if I were to do that today I'd look at one of these free alternatives: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-fr ... ftware.htm

Let me know which ones you try and what you think about them, Scott.

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but, it has helped me on many occasions.

I've used it's wizard supposedly meant to move an an entire OS from a standard drive to an SSD drive simply to move an OS to a new drive without having to reinstall everything.

It will also perform partition and format operations.

AOEMI Partition Assistant. The Standard is powerful enough to perform well.
