Planning to try some freeware backup imaging software, I wonder a couple of things.

I have 11 GB full of a 30 GB hard drive and for storing practice imaging backups, I have a new 32 GB usb flash drive. Is this enough, like would compression be enough to make this type of medium a useful choice? What kind of compression could I expect of the backup image files, if any?

What about uninstalling the backup imaging program if later I decide I do not want it/them anymore? Has anyone had any trouble uninstalling these? I plan to try Macrium Free Reflect, Paragon, and Clonezilla.

In any case, I plan to test or try these on an old laptop with Windows XP sp3, 512MB RAM, 2.0GHz Celeron Processor, (11 GB full of 30 GB hard drive).
