Acronis > Filezilla

I really like to use open source / free software where I can, but disk imaging is an area I have trouble doing so. There are not too many solutions out there. I tried clonezilla as it seems to be the most popular. All I wanted to do is image a 19GB SCSI drive with a Linux install on it. There's not even any raid involved. After 2 tries of failing for no reason other then "something went wrong", I decided to pop my Acronis disc in to image this drive. 5 minutes later, I have a backup image of that server.

Think this copy of acronis was worth every penny. It's actually one of the only programs I actually paid for. :D It was reasonably priced at the time so figured why not.
