Windows 7: Paragon Free Back Up and Recovery 2013

Paragon Free Back Up and Recovery 2013

Hi all;
Recently, i have just completed a clean installation of Win 7 and have downloaded all my favourite drivers & software. Hence, i would like to treat this as a "factory/ stock" copy and to create a full system back of everything on my hard disk drive and burn it into a few DVDs. Hopefully, these will be bootable DVDs whereby i just need to boot from these DVDs to recover to my present state should my Hard Disk fails.

Question:
Can i do the above by using Paragon Free Back Up and Recovery 2013? So far, this is what have been done.

Choose option #1 -----> and proceed to burn everything in the Hard Disk.

Then, i just burn this into a few DVDs.

Hence, are these bootable DVDs? Whereby should my HDD fails, then, i can just boot from these DVDs to my present state?

I think you have to make a recovery CD/DVD see "Building Recovery Media"

Ok.
I just checked the DVDs that i have burn just now. Unfortunately, there are not of .iso file.

In addition, i have just written to Paragon support team to request for a step by step instruction on how to create these recovery disks.

Paragon Free Back Up and Recovery Recovery Media Builder makes (1) one CD and is bootable for use when you cant access your OS.

The CD will give you option to access your compressed backup archive, default compression is around 100GB partition = 15GB archive that can be stored on say a external HDD. If your backup archive is C: (your OS) you will see the option to over write your present OS with the saved archived OS.

Saving your archive to DVD (if its your OS) will be expensive, a Flash Drive or external HDD would be better.

I used Paragon Free Back Up and Recovery for about 2 years and it works very well

Thanks for your help. But following your step, will the bootable DVD can return the PC to its current state? Because my objective is to create recovery DVDs that are bootable which will return the PC to its current state.

PS: DVDs in my country is quite cheap.

Your DVDs don't need to be bootable its the Recovery Media CD that is, that lets you search for the backup archive, so you would need two optical drives -

1 - to run the Recovery Media CD
2 - for your DVDs
