Back Up For W 10.

Recommended Posts

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 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.

Ed _P,

The following features and functionalities in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update are either removed from the product in the current release (“Removed”) or are not in active development and might be removed in future releases (“Deprecated”).

System Image Backup (SIB) Solution

We recommend that users use full-disk backup solutions from other vendors.

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.

Don't forget that you can use a couple of free Microsoft tools: WinPE and DISM: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/capture-images-of-hard-disk-partitions-using-dism

 

WinPE can be gotten by installing the latest Assessment and Deployment Kit: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/get-started/adk-install

 

DISM can be used to restore an image too.
