    Hi all,

    Having re-installed Windows (Win 7 64), I want to update it to the max and then someone create an image I can easily restore should I have any issues later on. Does anyone know anything (preferably free) I can use to do this?

    Cheers all.

    There is a built in imaging app in Win7.

    Can Macrium or Easeus create an exact clone of my hard drive? If yes, is one considered simpler to use for someone who has not done this previously? If not, can someone recommend a program,preferably free, that does have this capability? Thanks

    Either app will work. Easeus may be easier, but trust Macrium. If you have Win 7 you can use the built-in imaging tool. Keep in mind if you plan to use the built-in tool, you should have a Win 7 CD available to boot from.
