    guest's guide to backup :

    1- copy paste your datas to an external drive

    2- use a cloud backup service.

    3- use windows built-in imaging or install a 3rd party imaging softs to full backup your system partition.

    4- If privacy is needed, use veracrypt to encrypt uploaded files and to create a vault in the external drive.

    No need fancy words and extravagant explanations that take 5 pages.

    You are welcome :p

    @imdb not at all :argh::p

    Most of Leo articles are very good for beginners but to us they are the basics.

    no, i didn't. because it is free and an account is not required to view it. odd that you see a warning message when you try to view it. maybe your browser's compromised?

    Once a month Imaging of the entire drive containing the Windows Operating System (Image for Windows). These Images are stored on four (4) internal platter hard drives.

    Backup of important files to four (4) internal platter hard drives.

    Sometimes, really important files are also backed up to at least two (2) external USB 3.0 Flash Drives.

    I sometimes use SyncBack Free, but I usually just copy/paste the files with Windows Explorer.

    I doubt it, although sometimes it's a little embarrassed.

    Perhaps my post did not contain enough information. The index page is not a
    It provides some basics [@guest #5] but in the search for comprehensive guides, under the heading "Image backups" there are 2 internal links.

    Image backups
    .........

    I happen to use Macrium Reflect, but EaseUS Todo is also good.

    If you try them you will see both pages are Content restricted

    That's all I was trying to say.

    I like Robocopy for data backup. It is included in Windows, is fast, allows backup across a network and can be automated.

    I use Bvckup 2 for file-based backups and Image for Linux for, you guessed it, image-based backups.

    P.S. For those curious how Bvckup 2 differs from Robocopy, there's a great article here.

    your initial post was pretty obscure. i hadn't checked those links before i created this thread. now i did and it appears you're right. but that doesn't take away its merit imo. but thanks for the heads up. :thumb:
