Windows 7: How made a good backup

How made a good backup

Hi everybody,

i want to make a backup of my Windows 7 system. I've always made backup with XP and prefer to restore my entire backup because I don't like the "roll back" feature.

I've always use Acronis True Image Home (v11 right now) and I see something new: a hidden 100mb partition?!?!?!?

1st, what is this partition

2nd, does I need to include this partition in my backup? When I will restore my backup, does Windows 7 will be running without problem?

3rd, There is a better software IN Windows 7 to backup the Windows7 partition and restore without problem?

Thanks alot

Hello Rambytes,

The 100 MB system partition is the protected boot partition that also includes the Windows Recovery Environment for Windows 7.

It will be included only if you have that partition selected.

Acronis is a great back up program, but Windows 7 also includes a complete System Image backup feature as well that you might try.

Hope this helps,
