O.k. guys, we all need backups of our fully tweaked operating systems or copies of clean installs backed up to image for ease of re-use. I've been using TerabyteUnlimited's "Image for Dos" for a few years now, I first started using it when i was a gamer and had X settings wired and wanted a copy of it.

I recently updated the "Image for Dos" to V2 and decided to skip the whole "Burn to DvD" crap and just burn to another hdd hooked up to the mobo. Well shit, it took all of 5 minutes to burn 3 operating systems at the same time to one image file. Granted I didn't have the validate, verify byte for byte and bit for bit options ticked (never had an issue with a backup using this software) but DUDE! 5 minutes? HOLY SHIZNIT FAST and convenient.

Just thought I'd pass it along to you guys. I'll e-mail Terabyte and see if I can get a coupon code for a OCA member discount promo with them.

Heres what I'm using http://terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-dos.htm
They also have a "In windows" Image for Windows Version but I dunno if its compatible with win7 yet.
