Attack of the Clones

Posted by: admin  :  Category: Technology News

I recently built myself a new home PC which, as I’m sure most of you know, resulted in a lightning-quick computer. There’s a level of snappiness and responsiveness that you get from a newly built PC, which you just can’t seem to maintain, no matter how often you de-fragment your hard disk or clean your registry.

As a result, I knew that I wanted to create a disk image of my PC in its freshly installed state. This would essentially act as a time capsule, preserving an exact copy of my PC in its virgin state until I needed it. Then, when my Windows install got bloated and unresponsive in the future, I could simply copy the image back the other way, theoretically restoring my PC to exactly the same state it was in when I built it.
