CCC for windows?

I was talking to my Mom yesterday and mentioned that I was cloning my new MacBook Pro drive and she was wondering if there is a similar program that runs on Windows? She has a backup strategy but it is not bootable. Anyone know a good app?

Acronis TrueImage.

There are lots of them--all professional, well supported applications (unlike on Macintosh...)

HDClone. Not free for better version, but free for basic disk clone.

I've used Acronis True Image to make a clone of my PC's hard drive for a complete backup; the hard drive was close to failing according to the SMART test. It is supposedly much easier than Ghost.

Using True Image with my PC was no where near as easy as using Disk Utility to make a bootable clone of my Powerbook's hard drive. Disk Utility comes with Mac OSX.

I think Arconis TrueImage is a little better than Norton Ghost.

WinXP has a built in utility amazingly enough called Backup. Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Backup. It is not installed by default if you installed XP yourself, but it should be installed on just about every name brand computer.
