    System Image question


    I want to make a system image, but to get to the option to make one I have to go into Backup and Restore (Windows 7).

    My Previous OS was Win7 but I deleted the .old folder left behind, will there be any issues if I make the image here regardless if it says windows 7 or not?

    :)

    System Image Question

    You can put your system image onto your 1tb drive or a 128gb drive or probably into a 16 or 32gb usb thumb drive as long as the system image fits.

    My windows 10 C drive is about 120gb, the C: drive used space is about 25gb but the system image made with a 3rd party tool is about 10gb and its on a 128gb thumb drive with backups to it one day per week, and also a separate backup image into the 60gb
    E: partition 2days per week. And there also is an original copy of its first system image on a 250gb SSD attached to my wifi access point.

    If I were to have drive failure in my laptop, as long as the drive bought to replace it is equal to or larger than my dead drive, that system image will work to give me windows 10 back & all my files that on my dead C: Drive.

  3. System Image Question

    I've read online (so it must be true!!) that in order to restore from a system image both hard drives need to be exactly the same size.

    Is this true? I'd like to put mine on a 1tb drive but my PC is 500mb

    Thanks!

    I'd recommend using Macrium Reflect Free instead and write the image to an external USB hard drive.

    No you won't have any problems, the image will be fine. However make a rescue CD and check it can be seen I had to enable system restore that the upgrade of windows 10 disabled before my images could be seen by the rescue CD.
