Windows 7: Image your system with free Macrium

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1
 
 

Most ext HDD I come across and now buy are USB 3. I typically Image around 50GB and it takes ~9-12 min depending on whether I'm writing to inner or outer tracks (ie. how full the HDD is). You do get up to around x3 speed factor with USB 3 and is what I would recommend. Unfortunately I still have USB 2 HDDs

The image I restored was from an eSATA enclosure with a SATA 6GBs HDD, by the way.

Does Macrium have an option to boot to restore before loading the OS.. ( like Acronis )

From the WinPE CD yes because that is independent of the OS. But an installed Macrium needs the OS to run and with that you cannot restore the OS anyhow - just data partitions.

There is a Windows boot menu option with the paid versions. You don't need the PE disk, it loads the PE environment from the HDD.

Sorry Tom, I did not even know that. I never owned the paid version. But Keith saved the day. He knows sooo much.
