Windows 7: Backup Software

Backup Software

I've been looking for a little while now and trying to find backup software that meets the following criteria. Free Can email me results of the backup Can backup multiple data sets Can schedule multiple times for same set (i.e. daily, weekly, monthly) Does not use something like pycron (which I've had trouble with on Windows) Can rotate sets (save the last 7 daily backups for example) Does not require the user to be logged in Can backup locked files. Has anyone seen any good software for this? The free part isn't necessarily mandatory, but if I don't list it, people are going to say things like BackupExec or NetBackup. Thanks in advance

at work I use acronis and ghost but at home personally i prefer macrium reflect

Two days ago I installed a new SSD onto my home PC for my OS drive and it was EZ peezee with macrium, I simply made a backup image onto a slave drive created the boot disc , checked it worked then shutdown removed my old drive plugged the SSD in then booted to the recovery disc and restored the image , reebooted and that was it 40gig of OS drive up and running

I think the paid for version would do what your looking for ?
