Windows 7: Built-in System Image from Command line?

Built-in System Image from Command line?

Hello!

What I would like to do is make a batch (.bat) file which would tell my computer to do a full system image of my whole HDD - that is the Unnamed Drive partition (System) + C: partition (System) + D: partition. I would like the image to be created on my external USB 3.0 HDD (G: partiton).

Is that possible and if yes, how do I do it?

Thank you very much!

Hello Bellzemos mate I use the free Macrium to make a disk image and I have scheduled it to do it once a month. I don't know if this is what you want to do and I am guessing it takes the slog out of making up batch files which I am not familiar with.

Imaging with free Macrium

I have too set mine up t once a month but am not sure if t will work yet as it starts next month but you can set it from a day to a week to whartever.

Well why not clone it? Personally I can't see what the difference is I have mine set to do this on a regular basis as I said.

Oh well someone might know what it is you need - good luck.
