    WINDOWS 10 PRO INSIDER PREVIEW
       06 Aug 2015 #21

    I have been using NovaStor NovaBACKUP PRO for the past five years on many different Computers. When I was running Windows 7 I used NovaBACKUP 16 then upgraded to Version 16.5 (free) when available. I did Complete Backups and they ALL Backed-Up perfectly. Even the Restore worked very well. When I Upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro Version 16.5 would work very, very slow. I opted to get a FREE upgrade to Version 17 which came out the SAME day Windows 10 was released. I tried to Install NovaBACKUP 17 on my Windows 10 Pro Computer and NovaBACKUP would STOP in the middle of the Install. I contacted NovaStor Tech. Support and they informed me Version 17 is NOT COMPATIBLE with Windows 10. BUT a new Version, 17.1 is Windows 10 Compatible and will be able for Download 8/7/2015 (TOMORROW) !!

    Win 7.1 Pro

    Here’s a bit of confusing UD to me. After trying a # of times to make a image with the built in Win. process with total failure I tried the following: totally formatted a 1.5 Seagate drive with “C” having 100G space.
    Next I made an image of the drive having Win 10 in C . Win 10 was installed OVER Win 7.1 and seems to work OK. That image was made using True Image 13 to see if it would work. It did without an apparent hiccup.
    I next did a recovery into the Seagate “C” using True Image, again without an apparent hiccup. The Seagate booted up fine.

    MY project now is to try to appreciate Win 10 and feel comfortable to know that the images work so far.
    As stated I’m a backup freak and never want to reinstall an OS again after the first install especially with all the accumulated items.

    Hopefully I’ll have the same results in the future.

    Hi there

    are you using V5 or V6 -- V6 seems to have a lot of functionality removed. Also can you still get the fast bootable ISO (The Linux version) or do you have to go through the hassle of creating a WINPE bootable system --this also takes a LOT longer to boot than the old Linux based ISO's which start in a few seconds.

    The problem also with a WINPE configuration is that this is created from a RUNNING system so if you want to to a backup / restore on ANOTHER system the WINPE disk won't necessarily have all the drivers in it - Video etc for performing the operation on the alternate system. You might find booting the rescue CD / ISO system on the alternate system gives you unreadable video etc.

    The other nasty with V6 is that you can only RESTORE an image from the boot system - I often use a boot system to take a backup too -- that way I don't need partition locking with VSS etc. as I'm not running Windows while backing up.

    The Acronis system works ideal for me --I've a load of different systems with hugely different hardware. !!

    The Linux stuff just loaded all the hardware at boot -- very fast too and could run on almost any system without problems.

    Hi Jimbo
    I just checked and it was v5.2 free . all you need to do is double click the image and you can mount it from there!

    I have just downloaded the trial version of V6 and I can't see anything missing except the Boot Linux Version !!

    Not really tested it yet but there seems a lot more in it than the free version . It is supposed to 90% faster too but It's too late tonight to test that! I'll try it tomorrow
    If it works well I will buy one copy for my main PC and use the free version on my server as I can get away with 1 system image a week and Drive image daily and I don't mind how long it takes.
    I have written batch files on my server which work well but I've been trying all day to get them triggered from my main PC using PStools PSexec - I have nearly done it i'm sure I'm close but......
    I might have to do it in VB

    I use windows to backup image

    Attachment 28659
    I don't know why more people do not use this .. I can make a system image of my system in less than 15 min. If you ever have problems .. you know that you have a complete image of your system just waiting to restore from. I run it every night .. and I know I am 100% protected.

    I use a batch file ... and just double click one desktop icon. The rest is done for me. Doesn't get any simpler than that.

    That's okay if you only made a simple mess. If you made your OS unbootable you would want to have a backup outside the OS and restore it back like nothing happened. I can make a complete system image backup with Macrium in less than 3 minutes.
