    Recommend backup software for 10


    Hi ... I'm curious if anyone is using a backup software with windows 10 ? And, if so which are you using ? I always been a Acronis True Image user but their latest version 2015 I really hate the whole interface of it . I did try it out but it has fail when I try to restore an image on 2 different drives . So anything but ATI, thanks

    After using Acronis some years ago and having a few problems I decided to use Windows own backup programme. I see that it still seems accessible with Windows 10 but is now called "File History" you can make image backups of your main drive and in my case I have data files on a different drive and I can add a backup for them at the same time. I had one occasion to restore the C image with this software before in Windows 7 and it worked fine. A guide can be found here: How to make a full backup of a Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 PC | Windows Central

    Recommend Macrium Reflect. They have a free version that has all the features you need.

    I use the built in Windows Tools, 'Create a System Image', 'Backup and Restore' and 'File History'; they work fine for me.

    I am using macrium reflect on two systems and it works very well. I also use AOMEI on a laptop and it also works well.
    I have done many restores of Images of 8.1 and even 10 and have not experienced any problems.

    Thank you for the suggestion though I already use windows back up for emergency if all else fails . The thing is I need a software were by I can load windows and perform the backups and restores . My drives are all encrypted so I can't get into them unless I de-crypt, this is why I only use windows for a emergency ... Thanks though

    I do own three copies. I just don't believe free works as well as paid for. Just me. Aomei is free and I use two of their products.
    one is Partition Assistant and I have done alot of deleting and reconf. and never has failed or made a mess.

    W10 wouldn't allow me to keep my old version of Acronis so I tried the free version of Macrium and so far it's working great for me. Seems less buggy than Acronis was also.

    You know I heard about these softwares but never used them since I always used Acronis and I would always recommend Acronis to family members/friends and even on the net but not any longer . It seem this company is becoming another Symantec . I will also take a look at Aomei, Thanks
