I used to use Acronis True Image Home as a backup solution for keeping a fresh snapshot of my development system at hand. So when I felt my system was clogged up, I simply inserted my boot CD, restored my OS partition and everything was perfect again.
Now a hard drive failure forced me to order a replacement and I switched to an Intel X25-M solid state drive. Acronis True Image doesn't recognize the SSD, so I'm on the lookout for a replacement.
- Be runnable from a stand-alone boot CD
- Support solid state drives from this boot CD
- Optimally, save images as a single large file directly on a network share
