    PS.How often would you recommend to make an image of the C drive with using macrium reflect?

    I also backup the other hdd with using the Microsoft sync toy.

    Thanks Once again.

    I make a new image whenever there was a significant new update. That can be 3 times per week or 3 times per month. The day you need to recover the system from an image you do not want to work with an image from last year. Then you lose all the work (and files) from last year to now. Bottom line - the more you image the better is your chance to lose little work and few files if you have to recover with the latest image.

    once a week maybe, depends on what you have installed over several days mostly. Always best to make your image back when your OS is stable and running well. If you have not made a lot of changes, no recent windows updates, then you can wait for longer periods of time. Hope this makes sense to you.

    LOL, I am not a fast typer. I still use the 2 finger eagle system. And I am too old to be fast - looks like 15 years older than you (if I interpret you logon name correctly).
