I just got a new computer and have it set up pretty much the way I want it, have all my main programs installed, have performed all my tweaks so I figure now is the time to make a disk image, you know, before I make one too many tweaks and mess everything up.
I am wondering if anyone could give me some recommendations on what free program to use to make a disk image of my system. One of those that creates an exact copy of the computer. I guess it would be something like Acronis only free. One that works on Windows 8 64 bit.
Has anyone used Paragons Backup and Restore 2013?
My main hard drive is a 120 gig SSD with two partitions, one is the main one shows 101 gig with about 41 gig used and the other one is about a 10 gig recovery partition with almost 7 gig used.
Does anyone know about how many dvds it would take to back up this system?
I have no idea how there can possibly be that many gigs used, but there are. All my music, pictures, downloaded programs, everything other than installed programs are on my other drive, which shows I have only used 15 gig of 465, guess programs for Windows 8 are just much bigger than I thought they should be.
Also, does anyone have recommendations on which free disk burning program is best, especially for doing this type of backup?
Thanks everyone for any suggestions and help you give.
