First post on this forum, but have been lurking for the last few days trying to learn as much as I can. I purchased a new Lenovo desktop with Windows 7 which comes with a feature called One-Key Recovery. Image back up and restore. However, Windows 7 also has a back up feature, and from what I read DOES compress the images (even though many say it doesn't, so not sure which is correct). I was doing research on all these different image back up programs (Macrium, EaseUs, Acronis, IFW, Keriver 1-click) and I must say the options made me a bit dizzy Then I stumbled on a few threads about Rollback Rx, and it seems good from what I see, but isn't an image back up. My question is, in your opinions, which would be better, doing image back up or using Rollback Rx? I'm under the impression both cannot be used without substantial tweaking (from what I'm reading). I also gather that both can be used in case of OS failure, but Image back ups would be effective if there is hard drive failure, where Rollback Rx would not be helpful.. Thanks!
