    I have given up using system restore points. I just use Macrium Reflect to do a full image periodically and just do a differential (or incremental as I have MR Home) periodically, then it is easy to rewind and is more reliable. With Home version, it is incredibly fast due to Rapid Delta Restore.
    I agree Restore points also do not always restore everything. MR does.

    And it is 100% reversible if forward direction if you choose a later diff/inc. Restore points were always a bit flakey like that.

    I do agree that Restore Points don't always work but it's worth a try.

    If Restore points work then all is well.
    If they don't work you still have the option to use a Backup/Clone.

    That is why I try Restore Points first.

    If you're backing up to a DVD or DVDs, of course if you're imaging an entire disk.... What exactly are you doing, imaging entire disk and, if so, how many gigabytes is it?

    Most people are imaging with Macrium to an external disk with 500 GB to 4 TB kind of sizes.

    That's A LOT of DVDs! Do you have another disk in your computer or just the one?

    I had a external HD drive but it conected through the USB port. Not that good.
    If your are connecting to another HD why not one in the computer?

    What do you mean by "not that good"? Most folks either back up to an external that is connected to a USB port or to a network drive. I do it both ways.

    You can get a 1 TB external USB drive for $40-$50 nowadays if the one you have is too small.

    Backing up to a single HD inside computer would be not that good. If it fails, you're done.
