The backup strategy incorporates both automatic creation of system images & more frequent incremental file data backups
It is possible to easily create and maintain multiple system images automatically on a weekly schedule or manually create them as needed
System Image(s) and file backups may be stored on different storage locations.
I wanted 'set & forget', so older system images will be removed automatically.
I also wanted a single GUI(Graphic User Interface) for access to all the features I needed, an interface that for me is old school intuitive.
Make a Windows Recovery media for those times when you can't boot your computer and or need to restore your system to a new hard drive.
Yes you can select & restore individual files from your system image.
Your computer will wake from sleep or hibernation mode to create the system image backup, but not while it is running on battery or if you have shutdown your computer.
If your computer is 'on' at the time of the scheduled backup, it will remain on after completion of the system image backup, conversely if 'sleeping/hibernated' (not 'Shutdown') it will enter 'sleep' mode on completion of the system image.
You can receive an email notification of the status of the backup.
I have available both a free version that should meet most people needs in terms of redundancy as well as an affordable paid version with greater flexibility.
