What software/procedure would you recommend to image a 320 series ssd with an ATA password enabled? I would like to be able to create images that are easily restored (proper alignment). My goal is to keep these images on a standard hdd and then restore them as nessesary.
Do I need to do anything special in regards to the windows recovery partition?
Also does the full disk encryption have any effect on imaging/backup? Are backups still compressable?
I'm brand new to SSD's and really appriciate the time some of you put into helping people on these forums. Thanks for your help!
Once the drive is unlocked (ATA password sent to drive) it behaves like any other drive. Reading raw from the SSD (with a backup tool, dd on Linux etc) yields the actual data.
Never too late to get an answer I guess.
