Beautiful program which will help me a lot; instead of completely reinstalling and reactivating Windows XP, I now simply restore the snapshot I took of a fresh Windows (yet tweaked the way I want) with CBU 2 RC.
I currently use Acronis True Image and the one feature that I need is being able to boot of a usb. I cant see much point in backing up my whole computer when I have not way of booting if the system completely crashes.
So my questions are-
is there provision to make a bootable usb or is there a need for it with CBU
does this program make an image of the drives and if not could you explain to me what the difference is between making image and backing it up and backing up My Computer. I’m not really sure of the differences.
also can I back up to a usb connected HDD.
The above features are available with Acronis.
How can I save the backup settings I made (i.e. which folders and/or files I wish to backup) so that I can use these the next time I make a backup? Now, every backup I make, I have to do the whole procedure all over again (select files etc.). It must be there, but I don’t see it ???. Thanks.
To answer your questions:
1 - A bootable USB feature will be available, after a bootable CD/DVD will be.
2 - Yes, this program makes an image of the drive / HDD when selecting partition / disk backup
3 - Yes, you can
Actually, you have to select the files and folders with every backup you create.
But, you can create a ‘Manually’ scheduled backup to run it when you want with a simple click, without having to go through all the backup steps every time.
comodo backup is good but right now the reason i will stick with another free program such as macrium reflect free or paragon free is the rescue disk.this must be put in comodo backup if it is to compete with the other free ones,keep up the good work.
backup options: full backup, incremental backup, etc.
And why if you create a “Files and Directories” backup (with “Simple Copy” as a backup format) and select a directory to backup (for example C:\Users\Andrzej\Documents), Comodo BackUp creates a full directory structure in the destination place (for example G:\Backup\Documents\DRIVE_C\Users\Andrzej\Documents)? I think that it is not necessary.
