ODIN is a utility for easy backup of hard drive volumes or complete hard drives under Windows. A disk image can be created or restored. Only used clusters can be backuped, compression on the fly is possible. It runs under 32-Bit Windows Operating Systems. How many hours did you spend in setting up your Windows system? Setting up the operating system, installing programs, customizing to your personal needs. Do you want to be protected against hard disk failures, viruses or other malware? Just restore your system within minutes. Why spend money for a commercial solution? ODIN supports snapshots can be run from command line or with a GUI and runs on 32-Bit and 46-Bit operating systems.

Click Options and select "Save only used blocks and take snapshot." I'm unsure if Volume Shadow Copy is fully implemented, but compression was great using gzip--also selectable in options. 21gb of data (excluding pagefile) was compressed to 9 gb image in 19 minutes. First test on win7 x64 was awesome.

Tells you to set "take a snapshot" in options when backing up but that option does not exist. Backup size was more than twice of the one my other backup program produced and also took longer so I canceled before finishing. Gave it a try but won't be using it in its present state.
