    I don't know why exactly but i don't have that much trust in cloning and s.o. methods. Cleanest and safest way for me is the clean install. Other than that i thing that NiceAndShy gave you good tip

    So you don't do any backups at all?

    Why are you not wanting to use a superior 3rd party program like Macrium to accomplish what you want to do?
    Is there some reason for this?

    Just curious.

    @NiceAndShy has stated in the past that he doesn't want any corporation other than Microsoft to have access to his data.

    Plus the other agencies Microsoft shares data with whether or not intentionally.

    Not really. On my personal computer i have one partition win clean windows installed but used only in emergency situations.
    I have one backup made with system restore and that is all. Important stuff are saved on second HDD.

    I'm just worried about giving direct access to a 3rd party app to my most personal files.

    What do you think about Microsoft sharing data with other agencies whether or not intentionally.

    I don't even know how to respond to that. If that's important to you then stick with it and good luck.
