the best thing about that compaq (or hp) is you can restore your computer and still keep your data or you can set it to store bought condition.

it save you days of reinstalling all of your applications, when you do a fresh reformat .

Only for that particular partition.

So does anybody know if there is a software that does basically the same thing? I actually looked at some exterior hardware for the purpose - yeah, for around $300.00. I'd rather try software first. I have 138 GB on my C Drive - most of it is free, so I could spare some for a partition or what ever it is I need( I'm not the most technically enlightened person you'll ever know).

You want free software wich does the same? I don't know of any, but try to search www.download.com for imaging/drive cloning/ghosting software.

Norton Ghost and Partition Magic aren't free but it's a lot cheaper than $300.00 for Hardware.
I was just wondering if anybody had tried them or any other Software that does the Restore job.
There is another reason I'm really wanting a User's Restore. My internet connection has been a nightmare for a long time.I'm still trying to get some answers from somebody on where the problem comes from. The internet cuts my computer off - constantly - once while I was posting a reply on this thread. This action messes my computer up. On the old Compaq, at least using User's Restore would get it back in shape - for awhile.

I used both Partition Magic an Drive Image millions of times (PowerQuest releases, not the Sickmantec ones). It's pretty much self-explanatory.
You can copy a partition to another drive with Partition Magic. With Drive Image you can make an image of a partition, save it somewhere, and extract it to another hard disk/partition.

I fully agee. I mentioned drive image earlier.

you can find them on the net with a great discount (in some cases free) since powerquest isn't in business any more. norton bought them out.

one time last year I type PM and google and it took me to a japanese link where it was free. I was shocked.
