I always have used Seagate Drives, and now it is paying off even more. If your system has a Seagate Drive in it, you can download The Seagate Disk Wizard. And guess what that is! An OEM version of Acronis True Image. I always put Seagate drives in new PCs and partition the drive with a recovery partition. When I get the system all set up, I clone it to a file on the recovery partition. Now I can offer a system recovery option similar to the big guys. And for free!

I don't get disks with my drives as I buy OEM drives so are you just downloading this off thier website or what?

I get oem drives as well. You can download it from their site. It even says that on the drive itself.

Does anyone have a direct link to the file, and does it only work for seagate/maxtor drives even if you have a seagate and a WD drive?

Sounds interesting but haven't a clue what it is, and what it does, anyone willing to fill me in on this?

Cheers

Oooh....and to think I just added a 500 gig Seagate to my 'daily driver'.

I know what I'll be playing with this weekend. Thanks for the heads up!

Normally, an internal Seagate/Maxtor brand drive is required for the boot CD to function (otherwise the following message appears: "Error - To use the product, at least one Seagate or Maxtor device should be installed in your system"). This is an unfortunate bug for users of Seagate/Maxtor external devices. fmyhr has posted a workaround on Seagate's Community Forums that was provided by one of their techs: at the error screen, hold down Alt while typing "t" then "o" (for "tech override") and then click OK.

So what youre saying is if you were working with two WD drives, this is an over-ride?
