Win (All)

create a complete backup of your hard drive DriveImage XML enables you create a complete backup image of any logical drive or partition, allowing you to restore your entire operating system along with installed programs, user settings, registry and all. You can restore the image later to the same or a different drive, and also choose to copy the drive directly to another one. The program includes an image explorer that lets you open previously created backup images and extract individual files. DriveImage XML can use volume locking or Volume Shadow Services (VSS) to create the backup image from within Windows, without the need to reboot. The program stores your images in .dat files, using XML format, allowing you to process them with 3rd party applications. Free for private usage only! Copyright

Awesome back-up software 5 stars by realbull2009250 Apr 17, 2015 (Read all my 60 reviews)
This is one of the simplest HD/File back-up software to have. You can back-up HD to an image & then browse it, restore an HD to the same one or another, copy HD to HD and schedule it with Windows Task Scheduler. I wish more software would use Windows utilities with their own. It is a good way to create a light program. Also you can use it on a boot CD like BartPE, but you will need to download the plugin from their(DriveImageXML) website. It is very easy to use. I usually use this when I back-up my HD and migrate to a new HD. My only complaint is that since this process takes time, it would be great if they had an option to "shut down" the computer when it finishes the back-up job. Then I can just set it and go to sleep. It doesn't have some other features that other similar software have, but I love how simple it is and when I back-up files it doesn't interfere with anything else that I'm doing on the PC. Just use it! show Review details

Amazing - but ! 4 stars by cazulp Mar 09, 2009 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I deleted my previous review so that I could post a new one with more info. I tried various other pieces of Software and then saw DriveImageXML recommended in a review for something else. 'Thing of beauty' as they say in the classics. I copied the XPsp3 hard drive from my T42P to a spare hard drive in a USB external enclosure. Took about an hour and a half or so to do a 40 gb drive. When I booted up, checkdisk had to correct a few things and then it booted up perfectly. The next day I tried Vista Home Premium and when I booted up I had to insert the original media to do a minor repair and then it too booted up perfectly. Unfortunately Windows 7 is not supported yet. show Review details
