You need to include the version your seeking, the programs current version and possibly the web site of the programs,
this helps when people look for the file.
not including any of these will not get your a file, since you did not suggest any version you want.
OV might be able to locate a file for you, but there is no mind reading here... for free anyhow

I did a search for the website, doesn't want to load atm. But i did see a review of the software and it sure is not a cheap backup solution, at over $900USD.

If you need a total network backup solution for multicasting or an image server, Nortons Ghost is cheaper. but if you just one to make your own disk images for faster backup purposes, you can try a couple freebies, which i had mentioned elsewhere on this forum,

Partition-saving (http://perso.club-internet.fr/guiboure/en/index_frame.html) Freeware, Partition Saving is a DOS program that is used to save, restore and copy hard-drive, partitions, floppy disk and DOS devices.
Patimage.org (http://partimage.org) Freeware, runs on a bootable CDrom, and can restore and save image files from partitions or whole disks.
DiskTools ImageMaker (http://www.disk-tools.com/imagemaker.htm) SHAREWARE is lightweight, super-fast disk backup software. It allows you to create the exact images of your entire hard drive(s), or separate partitions on a hard drive, in disk files.
Paragon Drive Backup Enterprise (http://www.drive-backup.com/index.htm) SHAREWARE Drive Backup is complete and easy solution for hard disk backups, upgrades and cloning.
Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition 7.5 (http://enterprisesecurity.symantec.com/products/products.cfm?ProductID=3)
g4u ("ghost for unix") (http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/) Freeware, is a NetBSD-based bootfloppy/CD-ROM that allows easy cloning of PC harddisks to deploy a common setup on a number of PCs using FTP.
MondoRescue (http://www.mondorescue.org/about/about.html) Freeware
It backs up your GNU/Linux server or workstation to tape, CD-R, CD-RW, NFS or hard disk partition. In the event of catastrophic data loss, you will be able to restore all of your data [or as much as you want], from bare metal if necessary. Mondo is in use by Lockheed-Martin, Nortel Networks, Siemens, HP (US and France), IBM, NASA's JPL, dozens of smaller companies, and tens of thousands of users

hiya , can anyone recommend a good software to make a back up disc of my system, i want to be able to back up onto a cuple cdrs so that if i run into trouble i can just pop in disc one restart and let it boot from the cdr and install again much the same as the recovery cds that come with your system, i actually ran the recovery discs but then had to download and install like 30+ mb of updates , so im thinking it would be better if i made my own discs now that ive got a fresh install with all my programs as i like it, and all updates as well, hope you can help. many thanks

Depending on what Windows version you are running, there should already be a standard backup software app available, called MS backup. It works well for Win98.
For faster recovery, use Disk Imaging, Cloning, or Mirroring software.
