(redid this question from the ground up)
I need to make portable snapshot images of some hard drives. The images would be stored on some sort of external media.
My goal is disaster recovery, so this solution would be in order to quickly put an image back onto a fresh drive in order to get a machine back up.
Can you please recommend a tool for this?
(Note that I don't think I need to simply mirror partitions- this does not seem portable to me, as with Disk Copy, or Live CD)
