Kanguru PC Clone or Acronis TrueImage

I bought a pc laptop last fall as a second computer to our Macintosh.
While I don't use it as my main computer, I am getting a bit concerned
if it does crash and need to be rebuilt. At first it wouldn't have been
any big deal, but as I use it more, install software, and customize it
it would be a disaster if had to start from scratch. From what I've
been able to find it looks like Kanguru's PC Clone (software/hard drive
kit) and Acronis' TrueImage are the best choices for creating a clone
or backup of the entire drive. Is anyone able to offer an opinion on
one over the other?

I appreciate any advice anyone can offer.

I don't know whether it's a virtue or a vice in me, but regularly
rereading favorite books has always been one of the quasi-
religious ceremonies with which I occupy my life.

Re: Kanguru PC Clone or Acronis TrueImage

I use Acronis to clone hard drives in laptops when I replace them. Works
like a charm. Just make the bootable Acronis disk and follow the directions.
I use a USB2 hard drive enclosure for the replacement and clone to it, then
replace the old drive with the clone. You can also just do an image this
way; boot with the CD, run a create drive image onto CDs or another hard
drive, whichever you prefer.
