Incremental Backup which also is imageable

I bought and used Norton Ghost on Windows XP. I loved that program, it had the exact functionality I wanted. Since I upgraded to Windows 7, I can no longer use it because it doesn't work on 7. Do not want to buy NG again just because of that. Is there a good, free as in beer alternative?

I am only interested in backing up the whole drive (first drive, C), not so much in backing up individual files and folders. Backing up the whole drive is faster and I have plenty of external space. Backups should be incremental of course. Any recommendations?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Questions like this have been asked so many times that it's starting to get ridiculous. Use the built-in Windows Image Backup. It's right there under Backup and Restore in the control panel. – nhinkle Apr 8 '11 at 22:11

Norton Ghost 15

Macrium Reflect Free

Ping (boot disc only imaging)



I like G4L (Ghost 4 Linux). It is free, very similar to Norton Ghost, and is included on Hirens Boot CD (which is now completely legit). Works great with Windows 7.
