I can prepare close 448 Linux hard drives a day using my two disk duplicators. But with the windows drive I can triple that with ease, because it only dumps the data not the free space too, a dump takes 3 mins for a 3gig install.
Have you tried partimage? I have used it for backing up machines before swapping drives. The images contain only used data blocks, and when restoring you have the option of skipping unused blocks - should be very fast if it can be used with your duplicators.
yeah.. Partimage is Good for exactly these sort of putposes. It also has an option for transferring over a network. I duplicated my 30GB to my new 80GB with ease.
