Win 7 Backup and Restore

Has anyone used this feature to either create a system image or a system repair disk? Does it work equally well with DVDs and USB HDs? Sorry if this question has already been posted.
Thanks
Dave

FYI I'd like to backup to a WD Elements USB HD.
Thanks again.

  1. I've used it to create a system image of a Windows 7 HDD partition, boot from the repair disk and restore the image to an SSD - it worked perfectly with no problems.

    I burned the repair disk to and booted from a DVD - I'm not aware of any option to burn it to a USB drive. I made the backup itself on an external WD USB drive. I expect that any USB drive would work fine.

    Thanks much - I used it to create a system image as well as a backup of my files. Hopefully i won't have to use it. :)
    Thanks again,
