    What is an very easy Backup & Recovery of disk imaging?


    I am in need of a very easy to learn Backup & Recovery program please. I want to be able to take a image of my copmputer and put on my External Harddrive. I have tried Acronis, & Paragon and some others but they are so confusing. I have epilespy and its hard for me to understand some things. Please, any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless.

    Have you tried Macrium Reflect?

    There are several free versions , they all seem to work just fine.

    You might look at Aomei, it is excellent, completely free and they don't have a paid version to try and sell off the back of it.

    I would also support Macrium Reflect (free). Like most things there is always a bit of a learning curve but this nice tutorial should get you going

    Acronis Trueimage is really easy, once you have doe it once.

    Here are some pics to guide you:

    The bottom pic was missing- it asks you where you want to save the image-
    I name it Discwizard and the date, for easy reference.

    Also, make the boot CD, which will allow you to recover your OS and all updates, etc, in case you cannot boot.

    This just happened to me when I was hit with the FBI Moneypack virus - this saved my sanity.

    Those cut down Acronis do the job , but they are very large and intrusive, and have a lot of limitations.

    Both of the others mentioned, Aomei and Macrium are more efficient and have more functions. They are better free versions. I started the whole macrium thing back on Vista Forums - it is a good one. However, Aomei is now even better.

    I use Paragon HDM - Pro/Server/Business. They aren't free but I should mention paragon backup and recovery free - works well, too.

    If I was using only a free version, it would be Aomei.

    In my opinion, Truemage is the best and I have used it for years.

    It has all the functions I need or care about, but we all have our own preferences.

    Of course you can have your own preference.

    If the OP is looking for a FREE and easy to operate solution , the FREE acronis discwiz and wd equivalent are far from being the best choice.

    Not only is Aomei the best FREE solution, it is also very easy to operate and understand.
