I'm sending a laptop overseas to my daughter and want to give her some back facility in case of future problems. The manufacturer (HP) managed to include a restore partition of only 9Gb, but I've reformatted, put on Vista Ultimate instead of Home, not bothered with all the rubbish that HP included, and now she has a clean installation with all the programs she'll need and use. Can you recommend a back/restore/image making software solution I can include for her to get back to this 'virgin' condition I've created? I'm not interested in the original restore partition (its gone now anyway), I would never want her to have had the laptop in that condition! Whats the best software to use to get a very small image/set of back up DVDs I can use. I never bother with this image making stuff myself, if I need to I just re-install, but my daughter could benefit from some kind of emergency restore. Any ideas gratefully received, so long as you don't suggest the HP restore facility!! Thank you.
