The hard drive restore website has some helpful information about restoring hard drives. A complete hard drive restore requires imaging software that can create an image (file) of a complete hard drive.
This image or file which represents all the data and files stored on a hard drive is normally compressed 50% of its original size and usually stored either on a different partition on the same petabyte hard drive drive or on a second drive for safe keeping. Theses images can then be used to completely restore a hard drive to some known working configuration.
This can be very helpful after an operating system fails and you can no longer start the computer and retrieve saved files.
Making a hard drive image for computer data backup and restore only takes a few minutes. When you need to restore your data or your operating system it only takes minutes to restore from an image.
Hard drive image provides a quick and easy way to keep your computer up and running. My two favorite petabyte hard drive imaging programs are Norton Ghost and a free Open Source program called Partimage. Both of these program are fast and provide easy to use graphical interfaces.
