    If you don't already own Ghost, consider giving the Acronis products a try...

    True Image in particular.
    I use the Server product myself.

    www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/

    It had great compression and speed and their support is very helpful.

    if you "ghosted" windows xp, you can face some "issues" to reload it on a diferent computer configuration...

    cacosapo right but in this specific case, he's only changing the hard drive so it'll work.

    If you want to restore a partition image to a new disk, you can either restore as is and a new partition will be created the same size as the partition imaged, or you can create your own partition (usually if a larger size is needed) and choose the partition you created as the restore point.

    Make sense?

    Which version of what software are you using?

    I wanted to let you know that along with Acronis products, I also use R-Studio to image
    drives and partitions.
    www.r-studio.com

    It's also a great forensics tool.

    if can "image" a HD, you can quickly recover your system (i.e. remove trojan) and have all data (thru an image) to analyse AFTER you had recovered your system. You will have all time to calmly get all information about the attack, just reloading image on other machine.
    Its good also for knowledge. Imagine you discovered a lot of trojan on your web server and you wanna study that bots.
    image web server ---> after remove all trojans
    restore image on a controlled environment --> calmly study trojan behavior.
    fun, isnt it?

    R-Studio does a very good job at recovering deleted files and reading bad partitions from either a drive itself or images of a drive created with R-Studio..

    If that is what you were wondering.
