    Making a backup of two hard drives?


    Hey guys,

    I have been having lots of data split between two hard drives (which are two partitions as well).
    One drive has Windows 10, programs and games and other drive has games only.
    Both drives have 500gb so I am thinking of a way to backup those drives to one external drive equaling 1tb.
    Is that possible?

    Thank you in advance!

    :)

    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.

    Using network hard drive for backup

    It depends what sort of backup you want to do. If you're happy just backing up regular files, then there are a bazillion (really, that many!) different bits of freeware to do that. There is a good list here:

    Download Back Up Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

    and pretty much all of them can do network backups. Some even have fancy options like encryption. Really, the most useful thing is just being able to schedule them and know they ran OK.

    You may also want to make a system image backup too, and you'll find that software in the very same list.

    I don't have Windows 8 as yet, so I'm afraid I can't suggest any for that platform. Personally, I use Clonezilla for image backups.

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

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