I would normally just suggest backing up your personal data, and in your particular case, just factory restore your system.
I take it your realise there are two types of backup. A full system image backup does just that, it creates an image of your system drive that you can then use to restore from if necessary.
A personal data just backs up data from a location or locations that you specify. I have used Windows 7's backup utility and got on fine with it.
I tried a full restore on a 1 TB external drive. The size needed was 633gb and the external drive has that amount on it. Still, backup said fail. I tried to diagnose the problem and got this error: Failure ID: Q0BQRK-5NN5P9-WPTV5G-A0GM03 an instruction to fix the INI file. This might explain why the system says the backup failed.
Yes, I know. Perhaps you're right. An exact image might just reproduce the problem if I backed up from there?
