This is easily accomplished with a system image.
For my PC I don't do an image, I always create a clone to a 2nd hard drive. But for this netbook I did not. Is it possible to create a complete system image (clone) to a USB pendrive (or external drive) ? Any link that you can suggest that explains how to do the image creation and recovery? Thanks

According to Microsoft you have to save the image to a hard drive first but then that same image can be saved on a USB drive.

Maybe with a NAS box then to a USB drive.

Back up your programs, system settings, and files

Ok, so I create the System Image using Backup&Restore and save it to an external hard drive or USB drive. Now I want to clone that image to the formatted partition in my netbook. How is that done? Does the created image contain an executable that performs the restoration?

P.D.: I found these instructions. It seems there is no automated restoration as with 3rd party software like Acronis. Anyway, it's cool that Microsoft included an image creation option in Win7 as there is none in XP. Hope it's as reliable as dedicated software like Acronis, Ghost, etc.

System tray date missing
I had both the time and the date in the system tray, but then I decided to select the classic scheme. (I'm picky about the colors, and it seemed that I needed to do that to get the full flexibility I needed). I'm happy with the scheme but the only drawback is now the system tray contains the time...
