Recommended software for PC please? by Duncan

Needs to be free or cheap, but needs to work well. There often is something out there that does both.

I need two things: Virtual CD drives, and to image a hard disc to transfer to another.

It's all to do with getting my new touchscreen tablet to run the T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System), but I want a full backup of the hard disc before I start!

I've used HDClone from Miray ( in the past and it worked without any problems. The free version is slow, but works.

Daemontools lite is free and works on the T4, I use it. A free trial of acronis will do a complete 1:1 hdd clone, you get 30 days free. I had to take the hdd out of both machines though and use a 3rd to do the clone, but this was because it was easier!

Acronis is what I'd use Duncan.

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

Thanks guys. I'd looked at Acronis, but it's expensive for my use. Of course I never thought I only need it for a couple of hours.

I'll probably use daemontools lite too, since we already know it works with T4.
