Backup and restore

It would be great to have a portable backup and restore program. This way users could back up either their data or a full image of their hard drive and restore to a new hard drive or their original hard drive. It would need to create a bootable media for restore, and use a Windows PE or Linux boot engine. I've heard that their are some useful free apps for doing this. The app plus a user friendly tutorial would likely be a big hit.

Great idea

I think this is a very good idea, since I keep my backup data on my portable hard drive anyways, however most backup programs are commercial products or freemium.

The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.

Different Toolset

This is a different toolset than what we do. This would require a bootable linux to do a full backup... or at least a custom made backup app with support for shadow volume copy. And then a bootable linux or WinPE to do a restore. That's very different from what we do here.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
