Hello, great forum!!
Very happy user of CIS 5 RC2, planning to use backup software.
I am looking into Acronis 2011 and CTM and don’t know how to decide.
What I would like to do is:
- Have program that is stable and will not create problems, like not being able to boot or something.
- Backup my C: everyday on external hard drive connected via USB…
- Ability to restore before Windows starts, like program starts before windows logo
- Ability to backup in realtime, also Windows system files, settings etc…
- Scheduled backup
a) So, what CTM can do for me from the above?
b) Is there tutorial how to use this thing?
My system, if it matters:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit fully updated
HDD: WD 500GB, external also WD 500GB
Security: CIS 5 RC2
Thanks for any and all info!
P.S. I am writing this from work and don’t have time to look into this forum and I want to try this tonight, but need some confirmation and answers to the above.
Backup and System Restore are 2 different functionalities.
You should take a look Comodo Backup for backup functionality.
Comodo Time Machine is a System Restore product.
Sorry if this sounds stupid from my side, but in order to restore something, it first has to have a backup copy?
So, for example in D+ window, when there is option to check to make a CTM snapshot, what it does is exactly what?
Will check out comodo backup, thanks for the tip! :-TU
Ok, I seem to get it now, or so I hope:
Comodo Backup does the whole system or what I want!
Comodo Time Machine only crisical Windows systems, like registry and important windows files?
Am I right?
Also, I read that with CTM I can’t defrag, can I with Comodo Backup?
No. Snapshots aren’t backups. They’re stored in the free space of the disk. The disk surface information is kept, not a backup file.
It takes a snapshot of the disk state. You can restore it if the file run at D+ was a malware, for instance.
Yes you can.
You need to understand CTM technology. It’s not a backup tool.
Thanks a lot, Tech!!! :-TU :-TU :-TU
