Online Disk Cloning

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista x64 Home Premium, 3 GHz / 8189 MB
I'm looking for a disk cloning program that can be run from within Windows Vista x64. Ideally, something that can do incremental updates.

I like xxclone, but it unfortunately does not support Vista x64. Most of the other programs I've looked at either only work in offline mode.

Run ntbackup maybe.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I looked into Acronis True Image, but I was under the impression that it could do incremental disk imagine OR disk cloning. Can it do disk cloning and only update files on the target volume that have changed on the source volume?

I use Acronis 10 and it will do incremental back-ups and also disk cloning. Highly recommend it.

Thanks for the response Ewen. Your wording however still confuses me. I know Acronis does incremental back-ups AND cloning, but does it do incremental cloning.

For example, if I clone my primary drive to a second drive right now it will take quite some time to copy all the data. If I then make a few changes on my primary drive (say updating a Word document), then clone my primary drive to the same secondary drive, will it only sync the changed files (the Word document) or will it take hours to recopy everything?

I think I am going to go with ViceVersa Pro 64-bit. I just tried the demo and it seems to work great.

Acronis doesn't let me do incremental drive cloning.
