I have several family computers running Windows 7 that I am considering updating to Windows 10.
However, just to be safe, i would like to have a very reliable way to go back to the previous Windows 7 setups if the Windows 10 update crashes anything and the rollback feature doesn't work properly.
I've heard about possibly making a hard drive image or a clone using Macrium Reflect Free, but don't know much about that process. Some of the computers have a second harddrive, if that helps any, plus I also have an external USB 2.0 Western Digital 500GB harddrive.
For example, what is the difference between making a harddrive image and cloning a harddrive? Or is there any real difference?
Also, do I need to make some sort of bootable USB drive as part of imaging/cloning, or is that needed only for copying to a completely empty, reformatted drive, like if I were to install an SSD to replace my system harddrive?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
