    I split my programs myself from SSD and some on D Drive, Do I have to Image both in order to restore properly? Last time System wouldn't reactivate Windows 10 Pro after the restore procedure I did, so I ended up having to clean install anyways
    In that case you should make a backup of both because programs installed on another disk/partition would have to be reinstalled

    Did you get an answer earlier? Yes, you will probably have to restore both partitions that contain programs, one right after the other -- before doing a reboot.

    Thanks. I am trying Easus Todo and Aomei Backupper. They are very similar to eachother: for daily backups they offer one backup per day (I'm going for Full backups). Presumably each of those is deleted and replaced by the new one. Therefore, if a fault in the C: drive occurrs before a backup is done, that backup will contain that fault. Therefore, going back to that backup will have no effect.

    I found Veeam very intrusive, requrring a registration stage, and insisting on a phone number, so I have not looked further.

    The advantage of Macrium is that you can set it to (for example) once per day and keep each one for three days. That gives you a chance to go back to a BU two or three days before the fault and get a faultless BU. (Of course, you could set Easus and Aomei to do a once per week BU. Going back to that would almost certainly avoid such a fault, but that BU would be out of date by up to a week.)

    Therefore, can anyone recommend another BU utility that offers to keep daily backups for a few days (like Macrium does?)

    ( In case you are wondering, I know Macrium is very reliable, but I would be happier of I had another BU programgoing at the same time. Over the top I know, but that's me.)
    I have been using Macrium Reflect for quite a while. Tried some alternatives but felt Macrium is the most userfriendly.
    Is a matter of taste, I agree.

    I create images at regular intervals and run backups weekly basis. Sofar, in case of issues, Macrium never let me down.
    Can highly recommend Macrium. The image file can be explored (right click, 'Explore Image')

    As for backup of files (not images): it will create 1 backup file, instead of 1-to-1 file backup, like SyncBackPro.
    Consider that Macrium has a free version which is sufficient when it comes to images only.
