Default drive image software

I want a soft that will take the image of my drive in which I have installed win xp + min software required.
so i can reload the image whenever I want,instead of re installing windows which is time consuming.

I have read that Norton Go Back(I have not installed it yet) is useful,but it continuously monitors the system for new data written which will eventually eat up resources.which I do not want,I want the image to made only ounce and not be touched afterwards.

can you suggest me what to do.
or can Go Back meet my demand with change in settings

Default Re: drive image software

i would suggest Acronis True Image. With it, create a back up image of your whole disk, and I would store the image onto an external hard drive rather than onto discs to make it easier on yourself.

Antec 300 Case, Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 @ 3GHz, Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L, PNY 4GB PC6400 800MHz DDR2 RAM, XFX Radeon HD 5550 1GB DDR3 Ram, 1TB Western Digital Black 7200 32MB cache, 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, Antec Earthwatts 500 Watts

Norton Ghost is good too
I personally don't use those, I've heard horror stories about someone's drive crashing and then the program couldn't read the ghost image of the drive and the person lost everything. I just back up my info on to cd's/dvd's.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
