Create a "Clone" of the Windows Pre-Installation Environment (Windows PE) using a copy of this link and DRIVE IMAGE 2002 (Handles Linux, Windows etc etc partitions) and will write to NTFS for the backup images .
I also have created a Partition Manager plugin as well. If you need info on how to do this or how to add other plugins you might want -- the choice is almost unlimited either PM or email me off post.
( Don't use DRIVEIMAGE 7 as it requires that HUGE Bloatware Microsoft .NET to be installed).
The CD will boot and RUN ENTIRELY FROM THE CD / DVD so ideal for "cloning" computers.
It's very similar to the official version of Microsoft's Corporate tool Windows PE and is 100% LEGAL.
If you also write your Partition Backup on to the DVD then you've got a 1-button recovery system and with network support you can xmit / your backup images all over your network where necessary.
It's got a file manager built in and Network support so a very handy tool. I've built some add ins to use Mozilla-Firefox, WS-FTP (an FTP program) and some other recovery tools. NTFS file support of course is handled (Read AND write)
Anyway here's the link.
Hope it helps. I hate having to recommend a Windows solution on a Linux Forum but to maintain a lot of machines in a mixed environment it's a necessary evil.
