ive been reading about win7 backup
it says that it wont back up program files, recycle bin and other things
i cant tell if these exclusions are only if windows chooses or also apply to when I choose.

bottom line, my question is:
can i get win7 backup to backup EVERYTHING on my C drive, and if so how do i proceed

thanks

Yes. Windows 7 can backup up everything on drive C: as well as any other drive that is compatibly formatted. Without going through everything that has been written before on the subject, here are a couple of links that may be helpful:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Back-up-your-files

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Restore-your-computer-from-a-system-image-backup

Personally, I create current, updated images of all machines under my roof several times a month. Images are more comprehensive and easy to employ (IMO).
