    Linux and Windows Free backup

    Has anybody tried using this yet -- is it worth downloading and trying out. Apparently handles BOTH Linux AND Windows - Linux tends to use GUUIDS for partitions so not sure what happens on restore --I'll try it to an external HDD and see later.

    Thanks for the info Jimbo. Right now I don't have enough data left of my monthly allotment to spare the 250 mb download, but I will definitely give Redo a try at some point in the future.

    I tried RedoBackup on my Linux installs a while back -- and had mixed results.

    On the older distro, RedoBackup worked fine.

    On the newer distro, RedoBackup would crash, every time.

    Since (last time I checked), this has not been updated since 2012, I quit trying.

    I've heard that Macrium Reflect can now backup both Windows and Linux filesystems -- but I remain being a strong advocate of "the right tool for the right problem" and continue to use MR for Window backups and Clonezilla for Linux backups.

Best image backup for Windows 10
What do people think is the best fastest full image backup for Windows 10, like Macrium or Paragon whatever, free or paid. Also being able to do an image to put on any PC or migrating to SSD etc.

Can we enable Windows Backup?
Some parts are there but some are not. My Win10 Ent' won't let me pick a backup drive for example. And before you say it I only want to use the default MS backup.

Windows-like Linux OS
This is my favorite linux distro. I use the OS more than Windows lately. The familiarity of Windows interface with the security of Linux. (Windows theme and icons manually installed.) 1353
