20% off Acronis TrueImage
I just bought Acronis TrueImage for disk/parition image backups to my Iomega Rev Drive. It was between TrueImage and Ghost, and I just liked the feel of TrueImage better. It runs (not sure how) without having to boot off a CD, possibly using the Volume Shadow stuff?
The receipt included a 20% of coupon that's good for the next 3 weeks. Feel free to use it. The coupon makes it only $39! It might be a one-time use, but the receipt said "You can even send this offer to a friend." So, n number of your where n could be 1, or 1 or more will get this discount.

I used Acronis TrueImage for several years on an unreliable PC. The backup capability is great, however there was a big issue. It would not do a restore after about a year. Oddly, the next version of TrueImage that came out in the meantime had no trouble performing the restore! How nice of them to anticipate my problem and only charge $35 or so for the upgrade.
After upgrading TrueImage three times I now have a new computer and my latest version of TrueImage may not work anymore... Maybe I should try Image for Windows?

Wasn't too happy to notice the 17.5% tax being added thanks to being part of the glorious european 'union'... shock horror - that's a whole £4!
Oh, and their download is not Government firewall friendly it appears... (sigh) not having a good Thursday it seems :)
Thanks a million Scott for the link, and your continous words of 'wisdom' :P

Rather it installs a driver (you can see it in the device manager) and streams data from kernel mode to the backup device..
