Acronis True Image Free Wd Edition
I have an especially cranky Dell XPS15 running Windows 7 Pro -- I've had to re-image the drive several times, and I've grown tired of the lengthy process needed to do so using the 5 or so DVDs that I burned using the W7 Backup & Restore > System Image wizard. I purchased a 2TB WD external USB drive the other day and figured I'd give the Acronis WD Edition software a try since I had the machine stable for a while. The ZIP for the Acronis WD software downloaded quickly and extracted cleanly. The user manual extracted as a PDF file, was easy to navigate, and explains exactly how to use the software. It is clearly written and easily understood; it breaks down the steps needed to create a full system backup so that the layperson can do so easily. The software loaded and installed on the first attempt, and it allowed me to create a full backup of my machine including OS and files. I created a bootable recovery CD, as the manual advised, in case the machine became un-bootable. I then moved forward with some Windows updates that I think might be the cause of the repeated hard drive /boot failures. Sure enough, one of those was the whammy. One of the 101 updates in the last batch did my computer wrong. System recovery would not work, system repair would not work. I rebooted with the CD I'd made and followed the simple steps to restore my machine from the image. That process took about 10-15 minutes, which is way faster than re-building the computer from scratch with a fresh Win 7 installation. The image retained drivers I had updated, as it should, so my graphics and NIC were both restored to their as-of states from the image. Two notes: it dumped some settings (such as the selected desktop theme) and did not clearly give me a place to name the backup file, but these are minor matters. If you are looking for a fairly straightforward way to create a full backup (files and OS) so that you can recover your machine if/when you have problems, I can attest that this software and USB drive package accomplished that for me. Save early, save often.
