Is this a general backup or system IMAGE & BACKUP

Can someone tell by these jpgs if the 6/28/10 "backup" is just a user files backup or a complete System Image Backup with user files backup included which I think is my default b/u setup now ?

Thanks....TR

The items in the right pic could be moved to a flash drive or burned to CD. You will have to find them.

The Flash is easy to redownload. The Windows Security updates will just download and install again.

I'll check what my Sys Restore looks like and be back in a moment for the left picture.
I want to be sure.

My last Back up System Restore looks like yours. So this is defintely a System Restore point you are showing.
They changed the wording a bit on Win7 compared to XP.
If you need to go back that far you can try it.
Transfer what you can.

Yes System Image.

Just a thought.

If your having a problem if you post the problem it might result in a better solution than saving all those files and attempting to restore that far back in time.

Thanks Mike...actually I didn't 'say' that very clearly...what I meant was just saving the items as a list for reference in picture 2...not actually saving the programs/data/files, etc...themselves

I know I will have to reinstall any and all programs...etc..installed after 6/28 if I do this...

You should be able to copy the file names.

Let me see.

I couldn't find a way to copy file names.
There may be a way but nothing I tried worked.
