I’m still trying to figure out how the things you did “brought down” the OS?

I am working with Paragon at this moment.
I tried Acronis but couldn't get the hang of it....I also tried Macrium and didn't quite like it either. Paragon seems to let me do what I want to do....It's even the free one.
Just curious, what is Paragon doing that you like that the others don't?

Thanks and Happy New Year!

What I did didn’t bring down the OS, it brought down PT and my Icon.

I don’t know how. I probably could have installed the diginet protocol again but I honestly forgot


Paragon let’s me make backups on the same drive, ie different partitions

Maybe the others do that also, but it seems for my brain paragon is easier to understand- and it’s quick.

I couldn’t make clones on the same disk, different partition with Macrium....I don’t think it liked that.

I recommend doing backups on an external drive.
If your main drive dies, you're still in business.

Make incremental backups to this external drive.
Also make a disk image/ISO/bootable media (= burn a CD image of your computer) every time you add new stuff to your system.

Neither does Acronis. First I burn bootable media - a copy of the original drive in the laptop. Shut down computer. Remove the original drive, house it in an external USB-case. Install new drive in laptop. Plug in external drive to USB Port. Place bootable media in Optical drive (CD/DVD player) - takes you to the BIOS where you choose "boot from Optical drive". Time for a walk around the block, while your original drive is copied to your new drive.

This^^^^

Had a few drives go down and just re and re and bring the image back from the non-affected drive.

I’m a backup freak, everything is backed up 4 times.
