Copying Disc

I had a real scare yesterday; my power supply to my computer shorted and knocked off all the apartment supply. Repeated (stupid) the experiment a few times to make sure it was the problem. My computer guy eventually came and could not immediately recover the C Drive with everything of importance: shock horror of reality if this were true. Finally got everything back and replaced power supply.

But, my guy said if the C Drive was damaged he could recover files, but the programs, probably, were lost. Reinstalling lost programs could take weeks, if indeed I could find them. That in itself set me wondering if there is a way to take a complete copy, including files and progs? I do back up the computer a few times each year to a detachable drive, but I donīt think that is the same?

Advice please.

Ian

Re: Copying Disc

I've used Norton Ghost for this exact thing, an older version, I think version 10 is fine.

Re: Copying Disc

Once again - I am baffled by science. Is this something I should do?

What is this? Is it recommended and does it cover everything on the computer?

Re: Copying Disc

You do not say what system you are using so I will presume Windows 10. Windows 10 will do what you ask without the need for 3rd party programs.

Windows 10 is quite capable of creating a system image, (I would recommend a completely different drive, not a partition).

Follow this guide.

You will be surprised how easy it is.

Re: Copying Disc

Whilst Imaging software will make an identical copy of your master drive...It really requires you the user to keep it up to date on a regular basis.....Who does that?? Ghost was really developed to create a master install for your OS and preferred Apps...

The best and professional approach, is you have your Master Drive Mirrored in a raid configuration... Info here!!

As a business, I would of been proper buggered, if I hadn't done this a long time ago!!

Re: Copying Disc

This is all great advice, thank you so much. As they are free,and I am the worrying kind, I will use both Win10 and Macrium. To address sgreatīs point, the Macrium allows me to set automatic updating of the backup file.

Re: Copying Disc

Did a full image copy using Macrium Reflect. Needed a whole new set of permissions for some reason, but once my friendly expert had reset a few things, it was very simple. Under two hours, and very simple. Very reassuring to have it done.
