I work as an IT consultant for an international company and most of the time i come across a scenario in which because of some sort of problem i have to remove the old operating system and reinstall everything back.
I also need to make sure every machine follows the defined parameters (Like which softwares should be there, which settings should be or should not be accessible to the user). So to make sure everything is just the way as it should be it almost eats up most of my time in a day plus that employee also need to face this frustration as his work is getting delayed because of it.
We thought of using some sort of operating system image making software which can make the system up and running along with the defined parameters in less than an hour. First of all we used Norton Symantec Ghost as it's a reliable brand name. However it turns out to be very bulky and sluggish also the recovery procedure was not user friendly and it used to take 2 hours which I accept is still better than what I mentioned above.
One fine day while looking for a better solution for this I came across Acronis True Image 8.0 backup (Disaster Recovery) product and this was the perfect solution I was looking for.
Compared to Norton its very light and you need not to install any additional software to make it work because for Norton you also need to install Dot Net frame work which is also very bulky software.
Acronis True Image was able to make a system up and running in 1 minute and 28 second compared to 2 hours taken by Norton. It's so easy to use that even you can use it for your home computer and you need not to be a Tech savvy person.
It gives you one click access to:
Make an image of Operating system Hide the recovery partition from normal user so they wont accidentally make some sort of change to it, which was not possible by using Norton also you just need to Hit one button and Bingo it will do it on its own. Since the time I have used it every ones life is easy at my office and it's no longer a frustration for anyone.
I am also giving you the link from where you can download it and use it for free yes no demo and it will be registered under your name with no cost. Acronis True Image
