    Ghost images

    We are using Ghost images for our current Windows 2000 and Windows XP PCs.

    How are you doing it for Vista because I noticed that there's different
    partitions, for example, one is for recovery, etc. Also, is there a sysprep
    type of utility for Vista?

    Any suggestions/comments for cloning?

    Thanks.

    If you bought the system with Vista pre-installed, the recovery partition is
    used to recover the Vista installation to the same state it was when you
    purchased the computer. If you use this partition for recovering you will
    lose all of the data, programs, etc, that you have placed on the system.

    It's still a good idea to use Ghost or another disk imaging program to keep
    a current backup.

    There is a Sysprep for Vista.
