    Naw I don't...what's it used for? 15 minutes huh?
    What I'm gonna do is add one of my old 2.9 Gig hard drives as a slave and just transfer over what I need and than reformat it.
    I need to anyways. Things running slow as heck.
    Tell me about that tool you use though!

    Yes I've done that in the past and it works ok but takes ages and I always forget something, (don't forget IE address book and favorites), but now I just backup weekly to CDR's (as they are so cheep now).

    Ghost is an excellent and Powerful util, (if used correctly), that will create an image of a Drive contents or partition. What I did is a full install of Windows then set it up with my custom options, installed all the drivers, EXCEPT a video card driver, it defaults to a standard windows type on first install.

    Then make an image in dos of C: drive, to D: (an old 1.7 gig), this can then be removed or disconnected to avoid viruses or tampering.

    It is then a simple dos operation to Ghost D: over C: at a later date if you want it clean again and takes around 15 mins.

    There is quite a bit more to Ghost than that but that is the basics. please e-mail me

    Heheh, formating kicks ***... it's my weekly hobby. I got this old 4.3Gig HD and I use it to back up my files... but ever since I started using Norton Utilities 2000 I didn't need to format so much, since it looks and eliminates the kind of problems that where usually my reason to format... I recomend it, it's a good program...
