Explain Different types of Windows Backup.
Posted on 2011-09-06
Please only respond if you have experience with Windows 7 Backup types, and not google links.
I am creating Backups for Windows 7 systems, and am only interested in "System Image" that can be restored. When I try to schedule backups, I get a screen that gives me an option to backup
1. User Libraries
and then at the bottom has an option of selecting System Image only.
I am interested in Ghost/Acronis like Image backup/restore only, so I am leaning towards the system Image option.
My question is, What am I missing by selecting "System Image" Only, and excluding user libraries or C: drive etc.... Does System Image Include everything as similar to creating a ghost Image, or Acronis Image? if so, why does it give options to backup libraries/data on the same screen?
