okay I just got a new laptop with windows 7. I started to back up my entire system as a system image to couple of dvd's. at the third dvd, my laptop ran out of power even though it said it was at 60 percent and had supposedly 2 hours left power. When I resumed my system, windows found errors on the third disk. I assume this was because of the power loss. I put in a new cd and completed the back up.
no, 1 and 2 are of the first back up, the third one is still part of the original back up. the third one got errors when the power went out. I am doing a scond attempt at making disc 3 of the back up. the back up requires multiple cdäs to back up the entire system since they are only 4.7 Gb each
I will play it save and do a full backup again with power connected to the wall. After all dvd's are cheap and it is a pain to go through your laptop manufacturer to get a copy of the Window restore disc, if you need to restore in the future and found out that your backup is actually screwed up.
I have tired Windows 7 snap-in backup once and never use it again because everytime i tired to backup my system drive. it would pop up an notice, saying there is an error. What kind of error? I don't know. It just won't let me do this. So I switched to free backup tool: Easus todo backup on download.cnet sucussfully done and i use it to do my daily jobs. at download cnet holds lots of backup freebies.
