windows backup

Just curious. When windows does it scheduled backup does it also update (recapture) a new system image each time?

Hello mate.


You may have better success using Macrium and be sure to create the Macrium boot disk.

I have always used Windows 7 backup and never had an issue. I have restored it a few times with great success. I was just curious if it updated the image when it does the "backup" of my files.

Hello Indecici0n,

If you only created a system image, then it will not run on a schedule. Instead you will have to manually create a new image when you want to have an updated one.

To have a system image created on a schedule along with a separate backup of your files, then you would need to create a backup using the tutorial below with the option to include a system image (step 9) and the schedule set (steps 12-13) to how often you want them created.

Backup User and System Files

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Depends on how you have it set. If you are using the default setting yes it should be creating a system image. If you have it set custom it may not. For Sys Image I chose not to to have it set to automatic. I manually do it when necessary.
