I've used Clonezilla, Apricom, EaseUS and other backup/clone apps over the years. There are more ways to solve backup but here's what I call this. Ready? "OFFLINE BACKUP"
I use a bootable USB/CD/DVD to boot and that way I have no issue with locked files, etc.
I wany my computer to be able to bring itself back to functioning (personal files I already take care of). I have Norton 360 set to do backups but that won't bring it back to an original date (system restore isn't what I'm asking for either). System images I have never gotten to work befor although I tried making one. I use Windows 10 Home Edition. If anyone can help me with this I'd appreciate it a lot.
