(SOLVED) Full backup

(SOLVED) Full backup

Postby Stephanie » Wed Jan 28, 2015 4:21 am

Being quite new to Zorin OS I don't even know if this is applicable (I have run the integrated backup) but is there any programs that can perform a full and retrievable (via a rescue disk) backup of the complete OS, in short create a system image to a external hard drive ? any help suggestions appreciated :)

I just did my first backup with Redo and I'm delighted ! its so fast, in the past with Windows I have used acronis, paragon and macrium reflect all slow and complicated compared to Redo.
Boot from the Redo disk to set up backup takes 4 clicks and I have backed up my complete Zorin Ultimate OS in 9.6 minutes to my external HDD.

Solved :D

Really Glad to hear it - I too have been an avid fan of Acronis - heard they came unstuck with Windows 7 64-bit on their forums. The ultimate test is how good it is at restoring ... are you willing to give it a try and report back? ;)

Im happy to report that restore in redobackup works great (10.1 mins) , Yes I remember Acronis not doing so well, many at Seven Forums moved to macrium reflect I think on Brinks advice .. I was there :D
