|An drive image is considered to be a full copy of the hard drive. You can save it to a partition only in the form of a file. |
Some people call an image of a partition an image and may or many not be correct.It is an image of only a partition.
As above your choice of image or backup solution needs to be carefully considered and as to what is failing.
I have never had any issue with ntbackup but it isn't an image as such.
Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
