We use CCC for initial computer lab imaging, Radmind for maintenance.
We use CCC exclusively for cloning our faculty and staff replacement machines.

When I try to create the image it seems to get through most of the process until it gets to the step where it says "Adding Resources". It sits there for a long time (maybe 20 or 30 minutes) then says "Unable to create LarryMac.dmg error -192".
