You should find this software on your system CD, or from Apple's web site. It will allow you to create .img files from diskettes, CDs, or hard drives. Andre Vandaldezign@canada.comA.V.

RE: Drive Imaging For Macintosh? 2 mspackman (MIS) (OP) 24 Jul 00 07:55 Apple's disk copy won't work for me because it is too limited on the size of image you can copy. I am looking for something that will create an image of an entire hard disk and save it on our network. I am looking forsomething that is similar to Norton Ghost that we use on our PC's. I can put an image on the network and then ghost all of my PC's so they are set up all the same. RE: Drive Imaging For Macintosh? johnnyg (TechnicalUser) 31 Jul 00 17:47 AppleScript can be set up to copy the entire hard drive to a server volume. You can even set the server volume to mount automatically if the server is Netware--if its Windows, I am not sure. The best way to do this is to create an new user account on the file server. This account will only have write access to only one directory on the server. This directory will be the location of the backup of your hard drive. Depending on your network administrator, you can set up the user to have no password. For added safety, the user can have restricted login times. A Mac can copy its entire hard drive, even if it is the startup disk, provided it is done at the Mac, which is why AppleScript will work. (You cannot log in to a Mac remotely and backup an entire startup disk.)If you are familiar with AppleScript, this should be enough to get you going. If you are not familiar with AppleScript, it is not a very difficult thing to learn or to fake your way through. RE: Drive Imaging For Macintosh? Guest (visitor) 4 Apr 01 18:53 I've been trying for a couple hours to find some Mac imaging software too...I found one, but it's not working very well for me because I'm running PCAnywhere and Win98 on it. Anyways, if anyone else knows of any others, please let me know. Mspacman, one you could try is called ImageMaster and you can find it on ZDNet for free. RE: Drive Imaging For Macintosh? DaveGoTech (Programmer) 4 Apr 01 21:53 We use an external SCSI hard drive. Hook it up to a properly configured Mac andcopy it. You can then use it to restore that machine or similar machines. RE: Drive Imaging For Macintosh? Zelandakh (MIS) 5 Apr 01 08:49 Has anyone tried DriveCopy? In theory it copies the drive not the files so it should be applicable to any OS.

Stewie950 (MIS) 2 May 01 11:42 I have looked over all the posts, gone to the recommended websites, and still I do not see an answer. Is there a product like Norton Ghost for Windows that allows total drive imaging for a Mac? I have images for PC's that take 5 CD's and that is compressed data. RE: Drive Imaging For Macintosh? Zelandakh (MIS) 3 May 01 10:10 Can someone with a bit of time on their hands take any Mac drive and let drivecopy try to copy it?If it goes block by block, does it matter that it is UFS instead of FAT?
