Q: Solved: Recommendations on automated imaging software for Win Server 2003?

I will start by saying what I have been using for desktop computers. I like the way Ghost 15 works. It lets me set the days of the week or month to back up and allows me to specify how many backups it saves and deletes the oldest backup image as it makes a new one.

If Ghost 15 would work on Windows 2003 Server, I would be well pleased.

What is there that is similar that will work on Windows 2003 Server?

And that doesn't cost a fortune?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Imaging & automated recovery partition

What I would try is install Win7 first with the 100mb System Reserved partition which is assigned when you format the HD during install.

Next in Disk Mgmt. shrink Win7, then install XP which will remove System Active temporarily from Win7's 100mb Sys Reserved partition. So recover System Active MBR to SysReserved by marking it active, then run Startup Repair from Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD up to 3 separate times with reboots.

From Win7, type "backup" into start box and cue up a Win7 System Image to find out its size. Include in the image XP partition. Shrink Win7 again to make a Primary partition large enough to store this image.

Now boot computer and by tapping F8, access the WinRE Recovery console which 100mb SysReserved places on Advanced Boot Tools menu. Select "Recover Using an Image" and test that either or both OS's can be reimaged from the stored image using the utility. In some cases lower RAM will restrict the ability of WinRE to load itself into RAM sufficiently to reimage entire HD, at which point it will request reboot from Repair CD.

Back in the days of good old DOS, we had tape backup programs that could be preconfigured to run a complete drive backup on a schedule without user participation.

I'm looking for something like that for Windows 2000/XP. Norton Ghost is a great imaging program; but, I don't see anything in it that will cause it drop to DOS mode at the same time every day, image a drive automatically and then return to Windows--all on its own.

Any suggestions on anything about $100 and down that you know really works well with Windows 2000/XP would be appreciated.

- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server must be the root of the Active DirectoryŽ forest.
- Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server cannot trust any other domains.
- A Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server domain cannot have any child domains.
- Each additional server must have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 client access license (CAL). You can use CALs for each user or for each device.
The standard edition of Windows Small Business Server 2003 includes Windows Server 2003 technologies, including fax service, firewall service, and remote-access service. Additionally, it includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, enhanced tools for server monitoring and administration, and an out-of-the-box solution for internal Web sites.

The premium edition includes everything in the standard edition, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, and Microsoft FrontPageŽ 2003. The premium edition is ideal for small businesses with more demanding IT needs, such as data-intensive line-of-business applications, or advanced firewall and Web-caching capabilities

The standard edition has most of the stuffs inside.

Hello all. My company (small - about 10 computers) recently did some computer upgrades that took forever. I had to go individually to each computer and install every program to each one. So, I am looking for a drive imaging program so that I can just make a clean snapshot and go from computer to computer and get it done easily.

So, anyone got a suggestion for a drive imaging program at minimal cost?


A:Solved: Drive Imaging Software

I haven't tried it, but the Easeus Todo Backup is free for "home use, noncommercial, small business and enterprises"
Most of the other free ones from companies are for Home use only, and the commercial versions require a license for each PC, so that can add up.

You might find an open source program from this list:

I've seen Clonezilla mentioned a few times.

If you have a Seagate HD, you can use this, which is based on Acronis:
Seagate DiscWizard
Western Digital has a free version as well I believe.

Hey all I have a question. I am working at a company that was using Ghost 7.5 for disk imaging. It worked pretty well, however we now have computers with serial hard drives which 7.5 doesn't support. I am looking for a disk imaging program that can read ntfs (most of our network is 2000/XP) and can write an image to a networked drive (not external HD). Everything I read about Ghost looks terrible, and version 10 doesn't even write images as I understand it. I have looked at Acronis, but we don't have dvd burners, and I'm not sure they can write to a networked drive.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Software Raid5 in Server 2003

If the OS is not part of the array and you have installed applications on the array you will have to restore those applications as well. I am not even sure you can make the OS part of an RAID 5 array. Your best bet would be to restore the OS volume from a full backup...the OS won't know the difference since the array looks like one big drive to it.

I occasionally need to fax documents and have been using the built in MIcrosoft fax program in Windows XP. Today, a five page document took 30 minutes and that seems really slow.

Would Fax Talk or any other such program be that slow?


A:Solved: Fax software recommendations

This evening, I resent that fax through FaxTalk (trial version) that I downloaded tonight. It took 3 minutes as opposed to over 30 minutes using the Microsoft WinXP program.

This may be due to something I did or did not do in the Microsoft program but the interface on that program is not conducive to easy setup beyond the default.

Over the last few months, I have sent several faxes using Microsoft and each time thought that they took a very long time to send. Now, I see why.

I was just thinking doing downloading AVG free, Adaware SE, Spybot, and Spyblaster for protection for my clients. Why don't I store these install files this time? Then I thought why not just get WMI files of them if possible. Then I realized I'm a total noob to pushing out things and should probably ask how is the preferred method before doing it. Now I know that MS Server 2003 can push out things but I am unclear about 2 things.

1. Where should you store those WMI files you want to push out to select later?

2. If I can't get a WMI file is there a converter or should I get a third party product that can push out?

Hi nvisibl,

You should read up on Windows PE (Preinstallation Environment) for image deployment with the operating system of your chosing. To be able to manage and deploy security patches and manage these clients you're going to need a Server with a Windows Server (ie 2003 or 2008) with a valid license.

Good day all,

I need to save/backup each of the comps onto the server (including user profs). I have read quite abit on the proscess of doing this. However I was thinking, could I not just install a prog like Norton Ghost 10.0, copy the C: image, save it as a partion on the server (making the partions be just another drive for each comp). If this is possible, then could I access these partions from a different comp (so as to image a new HD when one goes bad)? I know, it doesent make sense to me either, lol.

A:Solved: server windows 2003

Run the "netstat -an" command and see what machines the server is talking to. If your sever is meant for local LAN use, you should only see connections to ip addresses inside your LAN range. If you see some internet ip addresses, then verify that they aren't Microsoft or your time server. If after all this you still have some foreign ip addresses connecting, then you start to worry.

Also note the ports that says LISTENING, and check to see if you know what those programs are.

I want to hook my printer up to my server so that I can print to it from any computer on my network. The problem is my printer does not have drivers for Server 2003 and the XP drivers, or any other OS version of the drivers, won't install for 2003. My printer is a HP Photosmart 7600. I don't care if the server can print to it or not, but I do want my laptops to be able to print to it. Anyone know of a way I can do this? I've thought about putting a wireless adapter onto the printer, but that would cost money, and I don't like to spend money

I've been a long time Norton Ghost user, but they still don't have a Win 8 compatible version. So I am looking into other brands. I've read some older threads here on the topic, I see Macrium comes up a lot, and I have used it a few times in the past, never on Win 8. I've used Acronis, but it has a bad record for reliability from the reading I've done on the Acronis forum and other places.

I've used the Win 7 imaging app. I don't really like the lack of flexibility and features. Especially when it comes to incremental backup.

What I need is an app that will do incremental images, that will backup and restore the MBR, and that is reliable.

Any thoughts are appreciated.


A:Need imaging software

For Windows 8, I purchased Paragon Backup and Restore 12 home. It has backed up and restored MBR as well as GPT with UEFI/SecureBoot enabled. I've created backups on 3 different machine types and have been able to restore on all 4.

It's $39 and you can build a Windows PE disc with the Windows 8 Assessment and Deployment Kit (free download), and easily pack in any drivers you need. Unlike Acronis which requires the Plus Pack to build custom Windows PE, you can do it with just the $39 Paragon software.

I'm looking to streamline some company procedures, and would like to know if anyone can recommend a fax server for a small business.

Our service techs fax in their worksheets currently, so we end up with hard copies floating around the office. We're thinking that we can use a fax server to facilitate storing digital copies for better record keeping. I know small biz server 2003 has this capability, but I'm leary about installing a modem on my server (power surge more than security). And most of the server based apps cost more than I can justify spending.

So essentially what I'm looking for is a stand alone program for XP pro. Big plus if it can route traffic by the ID of the senders fax machine. Stability and a relatively simple user interface are also important.

Thanks for any recommendations.

I am trying to do a full install of Windows Standard Server 2003 on a Intel-based server.
The server has a Promise Fast Track 100 Raid controller. This system previously had Windows 2000 Advanced Server on it with no issues. When i try to install Server 2003, I press F6 and load the proper drivers for the controller but then Setup comes up and says that it cannot find a hard disk. Yet, when I restart the system, it boots into Windows 2000 with no problem. I can delete and rebuild the RAID array so I know the hard disks are being recognized. I used WipeDisk to completely erase the drives.

I then tried to reinstall Windows 2000 again and am having the same issue that setup cannot find the hard disk. Any ideas why this may be occurring?

A:Solved: Default route on 2003 server with two NIC's

You already have the proper setup. You don't need any routes if your connectivity on the private end is all on the same subnet. Traffic which stays in the same subnet is just layer 2 switched traffic.

One thing you need to factor terms of security. Be aware that you are exposing your private network to possible hacking as your web server can be used as the entry point into your private network.

A:Disk Imaging Local Drive to the Server

Problem is, depending on the version of Windows you're using, the image from your old machine likely won't work on the new one. If it's Windows 2000 or XP, the two machines must have the same I/O chipset, or the image will bluescreen on the new hardware, and you'll need to at least do a repair install to get it working again (there are other workarounds that can be done before imaging, but they get somewhat involved). In the end, it's probably more trouble than it's worth.

If you're mostly worried about your work on the old machine, just take the drive from it and plug it into the new one as a secondary drive, so you can access and copy off your files.

Does anyone know of any imaging software which can back up large hard drives to a smaller image file, either onto a dvd or 2 or to a partition.

I would like this software to create bootable dvd/s containing the image.

This is basically to back up a system drive typically 500gigs with up to around 20gigs of files, & in case of system failure I would like to boot directly from the dvd/s or partition to fully restore the system.

I have used Ghost 12 in the past, but the compression does not seem to be high enough, It worked ok for Windows XP, But not Vista as it is a much larger operating system.

I have seen pc manufacturers restore discs which can do this, & some systems allow the user to create their own.
I have not been able to find any software like this which is commercially available.
Thanks for any replies


A:Imaging software with compression

This will compress to about 60>70% of the occupied space in any partition.
The trial DL is fully functional for 15 days.

Better price ..

It's best to put your personal data in another partition .. If you have many gigs of it ... then back it up separately.
You can also store the Image file in another partition .. preferably a physically different HD.

It will make a bootable CD that will run it in your computer .. once loaded into Ram.
then you can tell it which recovery Image to restore from.

I would not suggest trying to use a DVD for the Image .. an External HD is the best.

Hello does anyone know of a good software that allows me to create and restore images of other PCs over a network. Also one that does not need a license for every computer that you image only the work station which will be holding images? Thanks.

Acronis and Ghost are the two I have used, Acronis is much easier to use. I don't know what the deal is with licenses, sorry - look up their sites and see what they say.

This is my first time to post a question so bear with me please. The problem I'm having is with HP Software that came with a PSC 2210 All-In-One. My OS is Windows ME, Pentium II processor, 233 Mhz. I have tried several times to get help from the HP technicians but they can't help me so I'm hoping you can. When I installed the software, it all installed but one program (Memories Disc) won't open. When I click on the icon, the screen just flashes and nothing else. I've uninstalled and installed the software so many times I've lost count. I can't think of anything else to tell you about it so I'll just say, please help. Thanks.

is there any free disk imaging software to create backups of my hard disk?

i heard about things like Goback and Northon Ghost, but i think neither of them is free ware.

Any recommendations?

I now use MS Digital Imaging for correcting my photos, (red eye, croping, exposure settings, Light balancing, etc).

Can you recommend a good software package to do the same. MS does not have a new version of mine, they don't make it any longer.


I need many functions, since I make DVD's from these photos.

I'm looking into creating an image my computer but before I began, I was wondering if anyone had any recommended software to do this with. Thank much.

Are your system specs correct in saying you are using XP?

If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, you can use the built-in backup program. See this tutorial:

If you're not using Vista or 7, look at Acronis or Macrium Reflect.
