Disk Imaging for Windows 2000 Server

By Eddie Arnold ·
Hi Everyone,
I have a W2K server that has a hard drive with bad sectors which I'm replacing. First, I need a disk imaging software that will image NTFS 5.0. I have Visual Source Safe and Visual Intercept running on this server. These applicationsare crucial to my company. They can't be lost, that is why I'm putting 500 points for this question.

Greetings,

The most recent versions of either Powerquest's "Disk Imaging" or Norton's "Ghost" will do the job for you.

Both are in the $50.00 range (give or take).

In addition, cut and paste this link (REMOVING SPACES if they snuck into the pasted URL):

http://www.win2000mag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=20876&Key=Disk%20Management

It's a pretty good article on disk imaging solutions for Windows2000.

And another one titled: "How-to copy Windows to another disk/partition"

http://webmail.nic.fi/~point/win2copy.htm
The following link is to a variety of Win2000 hints and tips (not all related to imaging, but perhaps helpfull nonetheless.)

Norton Ghost 8.0 is the right tools but I do not recommend it due to the fact that you have bad sectors, and you will move those bad sectors to the new HDD. You will need a second HD or partition with enough space as much as 75% of the total NT volume.
You can dowload a free trial copy at www.ghost.com

The best tool will be a Backup and restore
Visual Source safe is easy to backup,and move to another visual source safe instalation, don't know about intercept.

We use GHOST for my company and it works fine.
