You can't back up programs without doing an image backup. When programs are installed, different components are written into different directories and updates are made to the registry files. It's not a simple matter to search and find all this information.

MR provides you a file and directory backup -- that can be used to save music, docs, etc -- but not programs.

If you could post a screenshot of your Disk Management, we could better help on your backup. Be sure and expand the columns so we can read all of the print. You can use your Snipping Tool to post it. This tutorial will answer any questions you have about using it. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Hi I've bought an external hard drive and I'm wondering if there's any way of backing up everything on my hard drive? By everything I mean all of the programmes that are installed as well. If something went wrong with the laptop or it was stolen etc, I'd be able to drag everything off the...
