re-imaging your watchout PCs.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

what is the best protocol at the moment when it comes to re-imaging your watchout PCs. Should I look at using a something like Acronis or the internal windows software. And why is that your preferred system to manage this process. & how often do you do this and what are the challenges you have.

I use Acronis since nearly 10 Years for all Backups and Restores.

My Watchout Image is very small, and when I use a USB3 Stick/HDD the PC is ready and fresh after 10min!


I doesn't use special PCs for Watchout, so I must use the normal PCs (Intel Z77 Based) that we use for Presentations / Congress Jobs.

For the small Watchout Jobs they are powerful enough.

For more "Power" we use the Pandoras Box or the Picturall Octo.

Acronis or Norton Ghost... we are using both and I don't really rely on the Windows backup.

Our IT guys usually use a multiboot USB flash drive that has all OS installs we need as well as data & password recovery soft + the image
