    How to restore C: drive from backup?


    Hello all. I need help restoring my W10 system. System was running fine and then all of a sudden, it goes to Auto Repair mode. That fails, repeatedly. I tried various solutions but none worked. I eventually decided to do reinstall of Windows using downloaded Windows Installation Media. Install is successful. I have a full system backup (from EaseUS ToDo Backup). I reinstalled the backup software and initiated a recovery of the C: drive. The C: drive, after the Windows re-install, is MBR and the Boot partition. After the successful recovery from backup of C: drive, the drive is now GPT and not bootable. Diskpart will not allow me to convert to MBR because of pagefile.

    How can I use my system backup to restore my C: drive?

    :)

    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.

    Obviously you're looking for something besides your Xp Pro utility that does this?

    Questions on C:\ Drive Backup

    *Original Title: Backup C drive

    I have a Lenovo K330 PC which I bought in 2011 with Windows 7 Home. Since then I’ve upgraded to Windows 7 Professional and now to Windows 10 Professional. My C: drive no longer has the Lenovo rescue partition. I have a portable WD Passport with
    1 GB used to coordinate data between computers. I backup my data weekly on a removable 298 GB hard drive. I currently have no system backups. I see several backup alternatives:

    • Windows 7 Backup & Restore
    • Norton 360 Backup
    • Cobian 11 Backup
    My concern is my C: drive is 5 years old. When it fails I’m up a creek. I refuse to go to the "cloud." I tried Windows 7 Backup and Recovery on my Passport. When finished I got a warning that some files were not copied. Not
    what I wanted to see. Will it work?
