Image Backup

Post by Lorac »

I am new to this software and am so far impressed by its functionality.

Can you please tell me if Backup4all can produce a system image backup? If not, what recommendations could you offer?

Thank you.

Hi,

Backup4All was not designed for system backup, so you won't be able to restore the operating system.
You should use Backup4all for data files backup only.
We do not recommend to use Backup4all in order to backup system files / installed software.
We encourage users to use it only for their own work: files and folders.

Thank you so much for your help. That is the conclusion I came to.

I am also looking for a way to back up my system installation.
It's a sad thing that Backup4all doesn't offer this.

I would be happy for the future if it would come.

It would also be great if you could create a bootable system image on DVD or USB stick from which the image can then be completely restored.
