I was browsing here looking for good software to do a system backup that can be restored bootable to a new drive.
I thought someone might get a chuckle out of my current software: I am booting Norton Ghost 8.0, the 2003 version, from a floppy disc. It served all of my needs until I got an SSD, where I tripped over the 4K alignment issue.
Just posting for the laugh, I will probably used Acronis or Todo.
I have had good results with macrium reflect too. The only problem I have had is that the rescue disc (live cd) doesn't seem to be able to handle older computers, in my case, an older PC with a SiS645 chipset. I'd see drivers starting to load up, then it would simply freeze and require a hard boot/reset.
