MS Backup

Hi have an external hard drive 500Gb , when I try to backup with the built-in backup program it takes a very long time, then starts copying, then fails at the last step. It includes a system image.

Anyone recommend an external (free) backup program ? Or of course, anyone know what's wrong?

Thanks. KK

Hi,
Most of us use free macrium reflect to create system images and most importantly it's winpe recovery cd or flash drive media to actually reliably restore a system image
