I have a 6 month old laptop with windows 8 on it.
My data and now my software is getting to the point I really need to know I have it all backed up and securely backed up.
my intentions are to boot from a cd, back up to a USB disk I have and make sure I can put it back the same way.
the question is what backup software that will boot from CD is very dependable cheap ( but preferably not quite free ) . with out spending a ton of money I want to know my software can be put back without issue. The reason I prefer not free software is the feeling of something to depend on ( someone has the time to make sure that version of the backup program really software works )
what software have you used that you know works in this situation. If it matters the laptop is a hp 2000 with windows 8 ( and all of Microsoft office which I can not replace )
