Hello,
I just have a quick question. What exactly is the difference between a system image backup and a regular backup and restore, as far as the files that are included? I understand a system image is basically a clone of your specified drive(s), including os, so does a regular backup not include the os?
I'm asking because my backup drive doesn't have room for both, so if a system image is sufficient and includes personal files (music, pictures, etc.) then that is what i'll go with. If this is this case, it would seem almost redundant to backup both a system image and personal file backup, but maybe I am just ignorant.
thanks!
