My friend and i are going to make a killer GUI for robocopy (or similar) soon actually. But I would suggest you take a few minutes and I'll help you with setting up a back up file with robocopy and set it to automatically run on a schedule for ya.
Also, freefilesync is pretty good, kinda works like robocopy too, I suggest you use the mirror option cause that keeps all folders updated to be exactly what the source folders have

Alright, thanks a bunch thumb.gif

If I decide to go down the Robocopy route and have some trouble, I'll post in that thread.

Glad I saw this! I'm going to have to try the free tool for transferring OS between identical sized SSD's. The windows built-in method sucks. smile.gif

Yeah--true to windows fashion, lots of variability between experiences. redface.gif For some reason, the process never completes successfully using the built-in imaging tool. No issues with size of partitions or disks (identical size disks, only one partition--minus windows-reserved). I ran out of patience trying to troubleshoot it, so hopefully EaseUS Todo works better. smile.gif

Does FreeFileSync let you do incremental backups like Robocopy? Or does it backup everything from scratch every time? If it does I'll try it for now because I don't need to do it by schedule, I prefer to do it manually because I backup to an external HDD which I turn on and off when needed.

Looking forward to that GUI for Robocopy!

Edit - going to give it a try anyway

Download it and see for your self lol. It has a few different settings that you can configure to back up how you like. I use the mirror option like the mirror option in robocopy personally. for the first back up it backs up whole folder you set it to to the destination you set. Then the next back up will scan for changes and only back up the files that have been updated for changed.

You can configure it to work a few different ways like from source ro destination or destination to source, sync folders from source and destination, etc.

Test it out and see if you like ti because it is just like robocopy but with a GUI and works a little differently.

Yup I just tried it and it does do incremental backups. Thanks again!

What's the difference between a system backup and a disk backup of C:\ in Easus Todo Backup?

Thanks.

SystemBackupImage should catch the 100MB partition that has no drive letter. DiskBackup may not (I never tested if it did), but it has other perks like you're able to do incremental backups afterwards. I believe both can be restored to a new drive, but without that 100MB partition you may have to rebuild the boot menu manually.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

Just don't do a file backup on your OS drive. It can't backup some of the stuff that's in use, and it can't be restored to a new drive to give you anything bootable.

I am planning to do a system backup of C:\ from Easeus onto an external hard drive. I have no 100MB partition.
