  1. Back up and restore - two questions


    Question one: what is the difference between backup and restore (Windows 7), which I find via the control panel and the backup utility in the new settings menu? Specifically which is better by which I mean faster, more reliable easy to use. (see images below)


    Question two: my entire C drive (I have no partitions) is 381 GB. I have backed up to a 750 GB drive using the backup and restore (windows 7) utility. It only adds changes and I have set it to delete the previous system image (I am backing up four libraries and the system image, the libraries are about 150 GB). But it says it doesn't have enough space to complete a backup. Why? Is something broken or do I need a larger drive?


    This image shows the backup utility in the new settings menu:

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    • Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    • Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    • click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    • Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    • Boot up with your new HD.

  3. Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)

    Back up and restore - two questions

    New here and seeking for help: problems with graphic card

    Thanks very much lilhasselhoffer. I'll start doing what you suggested step by step.

    One question thou: you suggested me to Download the latest driver package from Nvidea. However, the link you posted is for the newly released GeForce GTX 760? Am I supposed to download the drivers for that card?

    Sorry for my questions. As I said, I'm not an expert at all.
