In case you didn't know, Seagate have a free tool called DiskWizard for transferring data to/from Seagate disks. This is a version of Acronis True Image. There is a 40% discount off the full version of Acronis True Image 2009 for Seagate customers.
I have been using Seagate's DiskWizard to backup and restore a few machines with Seagate disks installed. It is essentially a copy of Acronis True Image which will only work if you have a Seagate disk installed in your system. One big advantage of DiskWizard over True Image Home is that it will work with server operating systems which the Home version refuses to touch.
Unfortunately, it would backup, but not restore my home PC when I was using a Seagate drive in a USB enclosure so I had to upgrade to the full Acronis True Image Home 2009 to restore my data. I used the special offer to get a 40% discount and was able to download the product immediately. Once installed, I was able to burn a bootable CD and USB key.
