Although I have been around PC’s for many years I pretty new to doing regular backups and even newer to Acronis so I was hoping someone could answer a few questions to help me in some ideas I have for setting up a full backup plan. As far as the way Acronis works, if I want to make a complete backup of my main C:\ drive that I can use to extract files from if I want to rebuild a clean system, can I use a “My Computer” backup as even though it’s an image file, as I see with Acronis, I can stlll explore that file and extract any file I want or should I do a second complete “My Data” backup as well ? Also if I want to do the same thing with a storage drive that doesn’t have an OS on it, is there any reason to do a “My Computer” backup or is just doing a “My Data” backup just as good ? Essentially I think it is obviously important to do a “My Computer” backup of my C:\ drive in case I would want to completely restore a working drive but if I can extract any file I want from that as well if I’m doing a rebuild I don’t see any reason for a “My Data” backup of it too. Then as far as the storage drive is concerned, since it has nothing but stored files on it I don’t see any reason to do a “My Computer” backup of it since I’m just saving stored files and no OS so then I can just do a “My Data” backup of that which would be smaller but still provide me with all the same info if a drive failed as a “My Computer” Backup would. Does all of that make sense or am I missing something ?
