SelfImage is a utility that allows you to create images of hard drives or partitions. It's easy enough to use for beginners but features powerful functions normally only found in programs such as
SelfImage is an excellent solution for anyone trying to create a dual-boot system, as you can create an image backup of a Linux partition directly from Windows. You can create an image of an entire hard disk, including the master boot record, partition table, and all partitions as well as restore previously created images to any partition, even mounted ones, as long as it doesn't have open files.
SelfImage is also specially adapted to take advantage of superfast processors such as multi-core processors. It performs on-the-fly compression, making this a particularly fast way to create images. For network administrators, there's also a useful Network Block Device support to make images of disks on remote machines, and restore them again.
Considering all this is free and released under an open source license, SelfImage is incredibly impressive when compared to products that perform a similar job.

Know that a partition image will NOT boot, ONLY a whole disc image. Defrag lightly first and Selfimage will skip the empty space. If you must place an image on a drive it does not match (an 80gb on a 160gb drive) you can use easeus partition manager to either resize or create a new partition in the unused space afterwords.
Pros: Super-powerful, life-and-system saving tool.
Cons: Tricky, limitations (such as bootable images) are not clear, but it CAN be found in the help files.

I have a question rather than a review. I tried imaging an XP pro image from a partition that currently had XP pro installed... The bytes transfer and everything completed.. I then mounted the imaged partition and made it the active so it would boot first.. Rebooted.. It only gave the already working XP partition option.. no dual options. Where do you think I went wrong?
