Hey G4EF community!

First off I am new here And I will be going by The_Chief (related to something I do in school.) I am an avid computer user and am always looking to further my knowledge with computers and technology.

Now to the question!

I am looking to send my Acer Aspire One D250 Net book to tech-services in Texas to repair the keyboard. I had a key pop off and a few other keys get messed up due to and ID card slide under keys and, yeah. Anyways, I would like to image the hard drive on the net book before I sending to Texas (where the repair center is) in case anything happens.

Can someone explain or link me to a tutorial on how to image my hard drive?

Hi and welcome to the forum and to Image your Hard Drive you can Norton Ghost which can image your complete drive in few minutes.

I just downloaded Norton Ghost Friday and just started using it yesterday. So far my only dislike with it is that you have to have it constantly hooked up to an external point because it will make scheduled automatic back-ups. I got my initial image created and am about to test it tomorrow to see if the image worked.

After I do that I will post a more in-depth review.
