Images are no 'burden'. You set it up once (5 minutes) and schedule them. Then they run automatically.

External disk or internal disk will do. You should have appr. 100 to 200GB capacity. CDs, DVDs, bluerays are no good for the backups. You want to be able to reuse the space.

Here is my tutorial on how to do it. But there are other options. The only option I would NOT chose is Windows imaging. Too unreliable.

Imaging with free Macrium

Hi, I bought this computer for my wife two years ago. To keep the price down, I limited the hard drive to 20 gb. Big mistake! By the way, SIW says its size is 320 gb, which is curious, but it really only holds 20 gb. That's what I paid for and that's what Windows says it holds. Anyway, I...
