Windows 7/64 HPremium.
 
 

I came late to this long Thread, sorry if I repeat anything said earlier, don't really want to fumble through them all!

I found Macrium Free via my network engineer grandson, really like it. I backup the 1TB PC and the 320 GB laptop to my NAS as images, both are very quick to copy. However, one thing I notice is that Windows Action Centre no longer recognises the NAS as a backup destination, but will only show DVD as such. Does not bother me, as I have a SATA external drive (no Hdd for it atm) and I know that works if attached to the PC or Laptop, have done it before. The NAS also backs up, stores and streams music, photo and videos - is that why Action Centre does not "see" the NAS?

Win7 built-on backup doesn't work over the network on HOME PREMIUM. You do need at least PROFESSIONAL. You can restore over network though (if correct network drivers have been loaded in winpe).

I may be very wrong here, but I believe that is Windows Home Premium will not back up to a Network device. Professional and Ultimate will.

Hi Bertison. I guess the reason for that is that you are using Windows 7 Home Premium. Network destinations are not supported for Windows Backup on that version. As you discovered it is fine for Macrium.

I've been beaten to it.

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,
