something like Norton Ghost but I want to store the backup/image on my D drive and use a bootable disc to recover from it.
Please note that my C drive is NTFS format.
I prefer free software and if not, something thats downloadable via dial up, like less than 20mg is preferred.

Thnx.

I assume "D:\" drive is your CD drive rather than anything else.

Perhaps not quite the same but a copy of bartpe (clocks around 3 megabytes download and is free) can make a disc to boot from and access drive/run stuff.

Couple this with a batch file and a compression app like 7zip (all free) and you have a nicely tailored backup solution/restore/repair kit.

Oh and since we are at it nlite for custom installs:

No, actually my D drive is where my files are at (anything beside OS and its dependencies), and I wanted to have my backup of C on root of D (it would be great if it could create incremental backups too) and then boot via a USB flashdrive to a dos mode (a dos-compatible since both of my C and D drives are NTFS) and use a batch file command to restore the backup.

The exact same situation as me ! Try Acronis True Image Home, it's perfect and you can boot on a special BartPE disc to restore your backup (it has the generator for the disc).

Well, I don't know if it can boot from USB Flashdrive, I'll check and edit this post

EDIT
The new version is even better than the last one

Boot your computer to start the recovery process without boot media by selecting the F11 key, even if your operating system has failed.
