Image vs Snapshot technology

Postby Intimidator on Sun Oct 17, 2004 2:39 pm

What is the difference between an image and snapshot?

I came across this article describing how this snapshot technology will change the future of backup and recovery.

If you are just at your desktop and NO applications open, but there are some programs running in background is a SNAPSHOT a safe way to go in order to backup a the enitre HD not a partition then allow a FULL system restore? Before this always was done thru DOS.

I just want to back up my 40GB C: (Win2KPro) to 20GB D: drive. I was trying to find the best method to accomplish this.

I burn my documents with NERO uisng the multisession feature. That works great to back up data.

Is compression safe to use for backup images or snapshots?

I would be interested to hear the expert thoughts.

Thanks in advance!
