I installed Macrium Reflect and created a drive image -- saved to my external HD -- and then created a rescue disk on a DVD. No problems.

Tookeri,

I've been using SyncToy for years. It's really sweet. I've tried many others and always return to SyncToy. Occasionally, Microsoft really hits one out of the park -- as they did with...

Tookeri,

I am now using WOT, which seems useful. I've also created a disk image using Macrium Reflect, which performed flawlessly -- much better than Window 7.

Thanks,

Tookeri,

Thanks for the feedback. I've added WOT to my array and will give it a try. Conceptually, it makes sense.

Thanks, Tookeri. I will take a look at F-Secure Internet Security. I note that you, too, use MBAM. Do you use Premium?

I have lost HDDs at the office and at home. If you don't have a cloned HDD to replace the dead puppy, you're facing many, MANY hours of replacement and reloading software. It's madness not to have...

Hmmm...Robocopy. Let me look into that. I like the idea of automated backup so that the when the primary HDD fails (which it will eventually do) you have CYA and your redundant HDD is current.

I used a program and checked the combined wattage for the proposed build and it is under 250 watts. I assume there is a surge during a cold boot, but what should the factor of safety be?
