    Hi All
    Do you know how we can clone the entire hard disk on a Mac?
    Deploystudio is not an option, I am looking for similar to Ghost on PC which creates image of entire drive.
    Assuming I have OSX Lion +bootcamp partition + recovery partition, how I can create 1 image that has these 3 partitions?
    Thanks in advance!

    I've used Prosoft Drive Genius for a while now. Been pretty happy with it, but I only just bought DG3 and haven't gotten to use it yet.

    Most users on this forum use CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner). I've used it when I do a SSD/HDD swaps and whole drive backups. It creates a separate recovery partition when cloning an entire drive and the backups/clones are bootable.
