Backing up my Samsung R519

If I was to do a complete backup of my C hard drive will that backup include the windows 7 installation as I do not have any cd to reinstall if any problems occur...I have just made a backup of the system software and I am going to do a back up of the harddrive (do u know it takes 10 discs.. how mad is that) Anyway appreciate any feed back ..thanks

Backing up to a series of 10 DVDs is much more likely to result in problems than is a backup to a separate hard drive. I would hate to have to rely on an image from DVDs.

thanks Maguscreed, you may have saved me 9 discs :-)

I dont have a seperate hard drive Ignatzatsonic so unfortunately will have to rely on a disc to do the job if ever in need of using one...hopefully not :-)

Question ONE:...If I do an image backup will that also backup Windows 7 files too?
Question TWO:..Can it be used on a new hard drive if ever I needed to replace it?....or would I need some other installation disc with it?

Thanks Guys

Yes to both questions. An image contains everything on a partition--Windows files, registry, configuration, licenses, personal data, etc--whatever is on the partition.

If you buy a new hard disc, you should be able to restore the image file directly to that new hard disc.

do u know the image backup is just a bad as the full backup requiring 10 or so discs....so I have decided to purchase a 1TB external hard drive to back up all computers in house and put videos and photos on too :-)

That's probably for the best.
External hard drives that are simple are usually the most reliable. I wouldn't get one of the one touch backup type externals.
I've had nothing but nightmares from those things.
