Windows 7: 80 GB intel SSD on the way

21 Jan 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Windows 7 backup or Macrium for free solutions.
Acronis as a Paid solution if you want more features.

Any of these should work just fine.

You will get many opinions on whats best but I would use either Macrium Reflect or Acronis.

I didn't like the built in one so well, as it just seemed to be lacking. But thats all just personal preference.

Theres a tutorial on Macrium BTW:

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

If you have a Seagate or Western Digital Hard drive, they both offer backup programs which are scaled down versions of Acronis. You can download them for free.

And it goes without saying that when you do an image back-up, do it to one of your HDD's or to an external USB drive, not to the SSD. Also, make a Windows rescue/repair disc (CD) ASAP and keep in a safe place.

Hi all Yes, that's about it really... Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel. So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too? I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).
