i just cloned a c: partition to an image on d:
the 62150 mb was saved with high compression and shows only 58126 mb copied. the pagefile.sys as well as the hiberfil.sys areeach a little more than 6000 mb. is there something not copied?
Windows 7 added a "back-up" program, located in the control panel. This does an excellet job of imaging the "C" drive. One advantage is that you can just grab ANY windows 7 Installation disk to retore the image. After the image is completed it prompts you to make a Bootable restore DVD which I just skip.
Have used several times and has worked great, AND it is FREE.
