What are you using for backing up W10 and making a system image? Prefer free, but if not too expensive will buy one. I like to make an image about every months.
I attempted to make one from the control panel but it evidently was meant for W7.
Many thanks, Jerry

I don't run Windows 10. I also use a paid program to create images.

I have seen Macrium Reflect mentioned.

Hello,

I've seen people report good experiences with Acronis, Paragon and the aforementioned Macrium Reflect.  Also Clonezilla.

Regards,

I made an image with Acronis, but since I haven't needed it yet, I can't vouch for the results.

I use the W7 Backup and Restore app with my W10 systems.  I have for yrs.  I backup to a separate partition on the hard drive before Windows upgrades and monthly updates, and to a separate USB drive every 3 - 4 months.

Make sure you create a Windows System Repair disc or USB stick to use with the backups.  And test it before you need it.

A Disk Management screen shot is good to keep handy also.

Another vote for Macrium Reflect. Make a boot disk after installing it and you can use that CD to boot with to start the restore.

Well it's in the 1803 update.  If MS drops it I will look for something else but no reason to at this point imo.

AOMEI Backupper Professional works well. I've used it to make a Windows 10 clone image to put on an SSD.

Don't forget that you can use a couple of free Microsoft tools: WinPE and DISM: https://docs.microso...ions-using-dism

WinPE can be gotten by installing the latest Assessment and Deployment Kit: https://docs.microso...ted/adk-install

DISM can be used to restore an image too.
