OS Drive Complete Backup

Post by Cain »

OK, I've never really messed with Windows Backup until this weekend. It sucks... badly....

Is there any way to use my beloved syncback to do a complete c:\ backup of the OS on my OS Drives?

My server has OS Drives (Mirrored) (c:\) and also Data Drives (RaId ARRAY) (d:\).

I have been using Syncback Pro to backup only the data drives at present to an off-site NAS.

If I use SB Pro to back up my OS, will it be difficult to rebuild my OS Drives if they drop dead (like they did last week) ??

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Please note that our program/s are not designed to (and cannot) make an exact copy of a system drive. SyncBackPro is a backup utility designed to backup files-based data that are created by the user (that is, files created by you and do not backup system or applications). Cloning or imaging drives are not supported, nor will be supported in the future. To read more about this, please click on the link below:

I understand, thank you.

Please let me take a moment to thank you for your amazing software. I've been a Syncback customer for many years, first with the free product and now with SB Pro. Every day I discover some new capability and appreciate SBPro more each day!

Thank you!
