Windows 7: advance systemcare wont remove

Todo is very large.

If I get tme, might have a look and see if it can run easily in winpe3.

I have Macrium, Paragon and Acronis running and working beautifully in pe3, so should be doable.

It might need drivers coming in at boot - Acronis does - the other two are pretty much portable and easy.

Can you extract individual files from the image with Todo Linux disc, or can you only do that if you mount?

Glad to hear it suits you. Very fast and reliable, I am very very pleased with it.

Only if you mount, as far as I am aware. But I haven't tried it. I don't use Linux itself much and don't really know very much about the newer systems.

Well, you will doubtless get differing opinions on this, but I turn it off. It has caused me more problems than it was worth.

As long as you have regular image backups there is no real point to it, it just wastes disc space.

I make an image backup at least once a day, sometimes more often, and I run an incremental file backup of my data every day as well, or more often if I have been working on a number of files.

For anybody else reading this, especially beginners! Only turn things like this off if you know exactly what you are doing and why!!!

If you make mistakes with stuff like this and your system crashes there is no easy way to recover it.

Sorry for my lazy typing lol.
Hi Mike,
When you say keep regular image backups, do you mean full fbackups? i have a 1Tb external HDD for backups and my main HDD is 1TB with just over 500GB of data on it. i've done a full backup and set a weekly incremental schedule. i only use my pc for gaming and media so things do'nt change too often. hense weekly schedule. i have win7 on disc. i also keep 2 folders on my backup drive . 1 for a copy of all main programs and 1 for drivers.i think this is ample is'nt it? i have no problem with doing clean installs.

i do'nt need 2 create a system image aswell do i?

You only need to image the system drive. ( Including Windows reserved partition), file backup for everything else, although you can make an image of files as well if you want.

I have trouble reading your posts, can you please not use abbreviations and "phonespeak". Makes it very difficult to understand what you are writing.

You need to image your system disc, including the windows reserved partition;



For everything else use file backup:



You can then also simply use "Incremental file backup" ( click on the check box on the lower left of the program screen to find the backup you want to increment), to add any changes to your file backup;







Run any new backups you do BEFORE!!! you delete the old ones.

If anything should happen to your machine in the meantime, you still have a backup. ALWAYS!!! run new backups BEFORE!!! deleting old ones.

You can schedule your backups to run automatically if that suits you better;
