Face it: No Matter What, Your Hard Drive Will Eventually Crash!

It's Not a Matter of IF - It's a Matter of WHEN...


If You Don't Have EVERYTHING Backed Up - It Could Be Gone Forever!


Brilliant Program Makes an EXACT Copy of Your Hard Drive...


All Files, Software, Programs - You  Name it - It's There!

Don't Lose Everything: Keep it Backed-Up With Disk Image!

Laplink DiskImage


Ever Wish You Could Travel Back in Time?

We've all had instances in our lives where we'd give anything to be able to go back and do something from the past differently.  Maybe you missed the lotto jackpot by one number.  Maybe you turned down what would have been a life-changing opportunity...

Or maybe your computer crashed and you lost everything - WHEN ALL YOU NEEDED WAS A SIMPLE BACK-UP PROGRAM AND EVERYTHING COULD HAVE BEEN RECOVERED - Files, software, programs, everything on your hard drive!

Well LapLink Disk Image is kinda like a time machine - it allows you to capture your entire hard drive on a disk as an image, and should you ever experience a crash, you just install the disk and EVERYTHING goes back to normal - your software, files, music, pictures: you name it, it'll all be there!

You just can't understand how awesome this is until a system crash inevitably happens to you - you won't believe how easy it can be to restore everything on your hard drive with this one amazing program!


Guess What? It Happened To Me - Windows Died.

Yep, me - the one whose ALWAYS telling people how important it is to back everything up no matter what.  So, did I end up eating my words?  Do I have egg on my face?  NOPE.  I used LapLink Disk Image, baby!  That system crash picked the WRONG computer to mess with!

See, my Windows 7 did the old crash & burn - it happens to everyone sooner or later.  It was completely crippled.  My data was gone.  My programs disappeared.  My system needed to be COMPLETELY restored.  Now, there's a few ways you can go about doing this, and they all go badly.  Very, very badly.

It's Not a Matter of IF - It's a Matter of WHEN!

Hard drives are mechanical.  They spin.  It's 100% GURANATEED that eventually, your computer is going to crash.  Just like it's inevitable that your car will need repairs eventually.  And when it does crash...You lose EVERYTHING!  

A Computer Crash Can Be DEVASTATING...

And what's worse?  It's nearly impossible to restore it back to where it was before the crash.  Your data is completely gone - photos, documents, music, financial records, e-mails - everything in your digital life is just plain gone!

Oh, and what about your software? You can spend DAYS trying to locate and reinstall your old software!  Months, even! But after all that hard work, you're almost guaranteed not to have everything you did before the crash.

And good luck trying to recover those old serial numbers to prove that you indeed bought that software at some point. Who just keeps that stuff lying around?  Nope - if your computer crashes, you're gonna burn...

Let's face it: a system crash is inevitable at some point. Be it in the form of a crash, malware or a virus. What's going to happen to all of your files, software and programs?  How long will it take you to recover and reinstall everything?  How much money would it end up costing you?  It's going to be a miserable experience...

Unless you have LapLink Disk Image, of course. Then everything is fine!

Computer Crashes No Longer Mean a Thing!

Before we get to any of the specifics with this program, there's a couple of things you should know: this program is very easy to use (anyone can do it) and the bottom line is this:

LapLink Disk Image makes an EXACT copy (image) of your hard drive. If your PC crashes and you've used this program first, you can restore EVERYTHING back to the way it was when you did the backup by sticking the disc in and letting it do it's thing!

This image can be created on another hard drive, an external drive, a zip drive, a set of CD's or DVD's - whatever works for you.  It's fast and couldn't be easier to use - IT RUNS DIRECTLY THROUGH WINDOWS!

That's right: software, files, programs, pictures, music...EVERYTHING!

Whether you accidentally downloaded a terrible virus, are experiencing a massive PC crash, got a ton of malware, have a PC that won't start - whatever - if you've used Disk Image, you'll have access to everything you backed up before your PC kicked that digital bucket.  

Restore Individual Files!

This is TOO cool!  Disk Image allows you to restore individual files as needed!  

Let's just say you accidentally deleted an important file.  Or somehow, you managed to corrupt a bunch of pictures you had saved on your computer.  Disk Image allows you to restore ANY file you want - YOU get to pick and choose!

Simply pop your disk in and choose which file to reinstall.  It's laid out right in front of you, and it's a quick and easy process.  No matter what happens to your files, hardware, pictures - whatever - you can rest assured that it's safely backed-up and ready to be reinstalled whenever you need to!

Creating Back-Ups has NEVER Been Easier!

Maybe you just got a new computer and want to bring certain things over from your old one - no problem!  Disk Image lets  you pick and choose!  And let's say you just bought yourself some EXPENSIVE new hardware.  Install it and copy it with ease!  Now it's backed up in case anything at all should happen to it!

And speaking of getting a new computer...maybe you're not aware, but most newer computer's don't come with a Windows restore disk anymore! Nope, the almighty dollar must be more important to them than customer get ready to shell out an extra 40 bucks on top of that new computer cost.  OR use Disk Image - and restore windows on all your programs on your computer!  

Look at that - this program has already paid for itself!


Added Bonus: Makes Adding A Larger Hard Drive Super-EASY!

Eventually you're going to run out of hard drive space.  This happens to pretty much everybody, that's why external HD's are sold everywhere. Now, maybe a better idea would be to actually just put in a new, larger hard drive - but that's normally the kind of thing that would even give Stephen King nightmares!

Ahh, but if you have Disk Image, it's a snap! Just create an image of your current system onto the new drive and BINGO - Install the new drive and everything is just like it was before the upgrade - except now you have all the extra space! Sweet!

I'd say this alone is more than worth the cost of the program!

Talk About a BRILLIANT Program - Just Look at these Features!

Let's just sum this up, shall we?  This might seem like a big bad program, but trust me - it's simple to use, powerful, and it WILL save you time, money and sanity!  Check it out:

 Makes an EXACT replica of the data on your PC!
 Allows you to restore ANY AND ALL of your programs and data!
 Optional Boot CD - repair & restore everything even if Windows won't start!
 More Options: create FULL or PARTIAL disk images - it's entirely up to you!

Today's Joke


Best Friends

Two 90-year-old men, Moe and Joe, have been friends all of their lives. When it's clear that Joe is dying, Moe visits him everyday. One day, Moe says, "Joe, we both loved baseball all our lives and we played minor league ball together for so many years. Please do me one favor. When you get to Heaven, somehow, you must let me know if there's baseball there."

Joe looks up at Moe from his death bed," Moe, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favor for you."

Shortly after that, Joe passes on.

At midnight, a couple of nights later, Moe is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him," Moe. Moe."

"Who is it"? asks Moe, sitting up suddenly. "Who is it"?

"Moe, it's me, Joe."

"You're not Joe. Joe just died."

"I'm telling you, it's me, Joe," insists the voice."

"Joe! Where are you"?

"In Heaven," replies Joe. "I have some really good news and a little bad news."

"Tell me the good news first," says Moe.

"The good news," Joe says "is that there's baseball in Heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before us are here, too. Better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always Spring time and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play baseball all we want and we never get tired."

"That's fantastic," says Moe. "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So, what's the bad news"?

"You're pitching Tuesday."

Daily Thoughts


A happy woman has no cares at all. A cheerful woman has cares, but has learned how to deal with them.
~Beverly Sills
When we are mindful of every nuance of our natural world, we finally get the picture that we are only given one dazzling moment of life here on Earth and we must stand before that reality both humbled and elevated, subject to every law of our universe and grateful for our brief, but intrinsic participation with it.
~Elizabeth Gilbert
Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude.
~Colossians 4:2

Last Laugh

Can't Go to Church

Two men were fishing on a lake, feeling guilty that it was a Sunday morning and they were not attending church. Even worse, the fish were not biting.

The first guy eventually says, "I should have stayed home and gone to church."

To which the other angler replied, "I couldn't have gone to church, anyhow. My wife is sick in bed."

Had to get a little wet for this one. Waded out into the (surprisingly cold) water and setup a tripod to capture the shot. This was the morning after a rainy day and there was... (more)

Bison Calf And Flower

I found this little guy roaming along the roadside with his mom (and about 300 other bison) in Custer State Park, SD. He was pretty playful and cooperative, so I stuck with him for a bit just to see what would happen. Glad I did! He discovered this thistle and flower and just couldn’t stop messing with it. At first, he was... (more)

Apple Tree Flower

This one is pretty simple. I don’t do a ton of macro shots, but in the spring, I just can’t seem to resist dragging out the 200mm macro lens and hitting the blossoms a bit. The tree I found was just full of new flowers, but I wanted something special. I noticed as the sun rose, the light spilled... (more)
