Forgive my noobish grasp of this. I need to backup my system. I don't care about the data files (i already back these up to an external drive), only the installed software. The software on this is worth more than the laptop holding it.
My dilemma is that I don't have any original software disc for the OS. Ultimately, I just want to backup the installed environment as is, so if this computer breaks, I can get a new one and load the working OS and Adobe software from a backup drive without jumping through registration hoops.
So which is more appropriate for me, imaging or cloning?
Appreciate the feedback from anyone who knows.
