I learned to not use any Microsoft backup software. Microsoft has failed to unify their systems. That is, backup on XP might or might not restore on Vista or 7. And most any combination of versions. Not to mention other failures. Since the backup is in some proprietary format you end up with bum backups.
Why not backup with simple tools like Goodsync, Syncback, Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier or even Windows Explorer?
You'll end up with files that are just like they were before without any anxiety of not being able to restore.
I am resuming my search for some reliable, effective & suitable windows 7 on-premise backup software.
Along the way, I have encountered mention of Windows 7 built-in Backup & Restore Centre. I have had a quick look at it.
Are there any here familiar with use of this Windows Backup & Restore Centre, & able to comment on its advantages & disadvantages, & how it compares to 3rd party backup software?
