    Backup/Restore reports non-zero backup size when there is no backup


    Trying to delete all backups from a drive.

    Now it says

    There are no data file backups for this computer on this drive.

    AND

    There are no system images for this computer on this drive.


    And yet the Manage Space tool still reports a System image size of 50 GB.

    How can I reclaim that space?

    :)

    Backup utility

    Cobian backup will do file backups locally or to ftp, with or without encryption and compression. However it doesn't do image backups, which is really what you need if want to fully restore your system.

    I've used the W7 back up program and Acronis a few times to restore a system and both work great. With Acronis though, you need to burn the recovery cd they suggest FOR EACH and EVERY machine you use it on.

    One problem with W7 backup is that seems to break easily. On one machine I did an upgrade re-install and the backup utility doesn't work. No luck in trouble shooting it either. So I now rely on Acronis exclusively for image backups. But I use Cobian for file backups to ftp.

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.
