I reinstall a fresh Windows XP every couple months for various reasons. I'm kind of getting tired of going thru the reinstall of XP and all the apps I need, so I would like to do this. After installing a new Windows XP and apps, I would like to immediately backup the entire Fresh OS and hard drive so that all I would need to do next time is just copy it over to my formatted hard drive and voila everything is as good as a new install. Is there an easy way to do this? I've looked at Norton Ghost and Acronis, but they don't look all that good. It "seems" relatively simple what I would like to do, so I'm wondering if anyone knows an easy solution to this. I don't mind paying for a good software for this, but of course freeware is better. Maybe there is a simple dos command like xcopy that would do it?!
