    I like Windows Backup & Restore


    Win 10 64 Pro 1903.

    I need a new backup system for a heavily used laptop with important docs on it. SSD system drive. I'm thinking of a WD desktop external USB3. I've never gotten WD backup software to work - plus I actually like WIndows Backup & Restore, which I use on another system as well.

    Is there any reason not to go this route? I know it CAN be a pain to get WBR working but I've done it before. If you say NO, do you have a better idea on what to use for software? Same for hardware?

    Thanks!

    :)

    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.

    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.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

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