    Windows 7 has a new feature not on Vista: The ability to restore your
    entire system from a system image without having to reinstall
    programs.

    If your hard drive fails and you have both prepared a boot disc (DVD)
    and have a system image saved on an external hard drive, install a new
    clean internal hard drive, boot using the disc and follow instructions
    on retrieving the system image and you are up and running.

    Are you asking or telling.

    Ps I had to restore from my backup this weekend as something was stopping my

    Painless.

    I am asking. I am trying to resolve contradictory statements made by
    DELL and Micosoft service personnel. Your situation was not the same
    as a complete hard drive failure.

    It might have been . as long as the backup is made to a disc that has not
    failed along with system drive you will be able to run it on a replacement
    drive. In my case I just restored the system onto the older system partition
    where upon it formatted just that partition and installed the backup from
    1/7/210 as I had it set to backup on the First of each month. You can
    control which folders are backed up or let Windows do it. As I had never
    done anything like this before only relied on Restore, which could not run
    successfully as it said some folders where not accessible. I used the
    windows disk repair and the backup and by the end of the F1 I was back to
    where I was on the 1st

    Yes it's true, but only on Win7 Premium or above.

    The Windows Backup software will create a system image (once or every time)
    and then create daily updates to that initial image. If you have the
    original installation disc then you don't need to create the separate
    restore disc as the same options are available if you select the recovery
    option during disc boot.

    Hope this helps

    I have a somewhat different understanding so please correct me if I am
    mistaken. System images are stored as such and are not modified by
    regular "Windows Backup" which only saves user files and not programs.
    So after you restore the latest system image you have saved, you still
    may have to separately restore user data that were saved after the
    last system image and are kept separately from it.

    That is how I interpret the following,

    "Windows Backup won't back up the following items:

    Program files (files that define themselves as part of a program in
    the registry when the program is installed)..."

    You can pick and choose what to backup. I backup my entire C: drive minus
    the "library" directories (which on my pc link to huge directories like my
    mp3 collection so it would backup those too).

    I chose settings that create one master image only (saves space) and then to
    make daily updates which it stores in directories. Win-backup also manages
    the size/amount of these updates to save space.

    If/When you have to do a complete image restore (eg new drive), Windows
    gives you a list of the last/latest save-points (very similar to System
    Restore) and then restores everything back to that date using the master
    image and updates.

    The restore process is complete, no reinstalls required provided you have
    selected all/enough of the files/dirs on your C: drive (and/or other drives
    if you wish) to be backed up.

    It can use up a lot of space making all those backups though. For example,
    my C: drive contains about 40GB of data so initially I gave Win-backup a
    whole 50GB partition to play with but it kept running out of space, you'd
    get one master and about 2 days of updates before you had to wipe it all and
    start again. I now let Win-backup have an entire 150GB drive (139GB usable)
    and right now it has used around 100GB! There must be a sweet-spot whereby
    you don't have to constantly delete updates and don't waste space... I'm
    guessing double the size of your data to be kept safe.

    Hope this helps

    You can also from time to time start over, i.e., create a new master backup
    instead of an incremental backup.

    I like to do that on a second disk, i.e, keep two drives, and back up to
    one until it's close to full, then switch to a second with a fresh backup
    and put the first aside. When the second one gets full, swap the two
    drives, rinse, and repeat.

    Nope The scheduled backups will add or remove from the previous so that you
    have a current image I only backup the system drive c which does include
    Libraries which are but links to the folders that may be on other drives.
    And all programs that where installed at the time of the backup will be
    restored.

    What I find confusing is that Windows 7 gives you the ability to
    create a system image and also do a schuduled backup which may also
    contain a system image along with separate backups of chosen files. If
    you have the room, you can create and keep many system images from
    various dates. I have an external hard drive, a WD MyBook Essentials,
    the same size as my internal hard drive, which (WD Smartware)is
    automatically doing backups of any file on the internal hard drive
    that I make a change to, keeping up to 3 previous versions. When I
    manually create a system image from the Backup and Restore function of
    Win 7, it also ends up on the external drive. Is the WD Smartware
    also modifying the stored system image? So right now I just create a
    system image once a month and don't do any scheduled backups. Is
    there a better way? Both internal and external drives are 1TB of
    which I currently use less than 200GB.

    I understand your frustrations, but race has nothing to do
    with French vs. English.

    I don't think most people here would reject you for being a
    Francophone[1]. Or so I hope...

    [1] I am assuming you do both languages...
