    I need a perfect system image with a one click to restore


    I have a 2011 iMac, with Windows 10 Pro on Bootcamp partition, everything is super normal, except that my 256GB SSD drive is getting short and I am thinking to upgrade it to a larger capacity. What I need is, a perfect system image with a one click to restore it in the new drive the way it was without going through all the hassle of installing the applications again. What do you recommend?

    :)
     

  2. How do I restore a system image to a NEW hard drive?

    I have a failing HDD in my laptop, so I need to replace it, but it's the drive with the OS on.

    I created a system image, and saved it to the laptop's 2nd HDD.

    I now have a 3rd HDD, a new one to replace the 1st one. I've plugged it in using an external casing.

    How do I use the system image to put my OS onto the new, 3rd HDD?

    Every time I try to restore, it just wants to put it back on the 1st, failing, HDD.

    You could take a look at paragon software.

    Does it offer "one click restore"? I don't think any third party backup/restore programs offer "one click restore". Every one that I know of requires you to boot from a recovery USB drive or DVD and go through several options of selecting the recovery image to restore and the location to restore it to. Macrium Reflect is the most recommended software on this forum that works that way, but I don't know how/if it works on a Mac with bootcamp.

    Regardless of what backup / restore / cloning utility is used, one-click operations would have to make some mighty correct assumptions in order to complete a one-click operation flawlessly. +1 to other posters who experienced what I experienced: restore operations that depended upon me to ensure exactly what (or which) image is going onto what partition or hard-drive, along with "telling" the utility what to do when encountering a target different in byte-space size from the source.

    I don't know, that is why I suggested he take a look. More likely to get something to work with his setup from Paragon than anywhere else. One click or not.

    Aomei Onekey may not work with his system.

    I need a perfect system image with a one click to restore

    Thank you all for your replies. In fact what I meant by one click was not a magic click, more was about an easy restoration without the hassle of the re-installation of the drivers and applications. I don't mind booting from a recovery USB drive or DVD and restore the image. But still the question of Bootcamp partition is unclear.

    I tried Macrium Reflect Free and is showing the below screenshot. So which partition should I choose for the Windows image? I know #2 is the partition for the OSX and #4 obviously is for the Windows, but not sure about #1 and #3. Should I select all or all without #4?
