    Thanks Brink. That's good news about Windows System Image backup :) Have not kept up with Acronis after an update caused me no end of problems with Windows 7. It also left a sceduler active after it was uninstalled which I only discovered just before upgrading to Windows 10

    Will take a look at Macrium Reflect and hope it's easier to configure and understand than Acronis was and have a good support Forum which is not too technical.

    That's very kind of Brink. Will bookmark those in case.

    Have successfully created a System Image Backup with Windows 10 and a System Repair Disk. If only these other programs were as straight forward!

    Carbonite keeps a running backup of all my files and I also do that manually on removable storage so I think belt and braces duly secured :)

    You said your don't mind dumb questions, so here goes .... As the option to create a System Repair Disk appeared when I finished the System Image Backup, is it necessary to create a new System Repair Disk after every new Image Backup?

    One more question. I have one PC with UEFI and one with MBR. Will one disk work with both?

    Hello Clint, :)

    You could use the UEFI disk on both. You would just select the non-UEFI boot menu item for the USB when booting to MBR.

    Thanks again Brink. I made a DVD instead of a USB.

    How often should you make a System Repair Disk? The option to create a System Repair Disk appeared when I finished the System Image Backup, is it necessary to create a new System Repair Disk after every new Image Backup, or after a big Windows update perhaps?

    It wouldn't hurt to create a new one for each new build to be safe.

    If you like, you could also boot from Windows 10 installation media as well since it also include WinRE.

    Will do when Redstone comes in.

    Ah there you have me. Windows 10 was an upgrade so I don't have any separate installation media for it. Only the disk for Windows 7 (64 bit) and wouldn't want to go through that upgrade performance again
