  2. If your external hard drive fails. You aren't completely fucked. Just remove the casing from the external hard drive and just put it inside your laptop. When an external hard drive fails, it's likely that the connection became lose.

  3. I am looking for the best way to have an end user backup his Acer laptop using Windows 7, Robo Copy or Xcopy may be to difficult for him, I have to reformat his drive to install Windows 10, the upgrade keeps failing, the Microsoft Store told him it might be bad ram, but I disagree, a new fresh clean install should get it to complete the installation, will Windows 10 restore a Windows 7 backup, I want to make sure that I don't restore DLL's and System Files using a full backup image that are Windows 7 specific, and cause Windows 10 to no longer be stable.

I back up my files, my computer crashes (harddrive is gone) I have to install a new hard drive, do I still need to install an OS OR, can I simply boot from USB and the external hard drive will do the rest? I would appreciate it if you could do a video on that. I think a lot of people have this issue and would love to see it live! Please shoot me a notice that you did such a video. If not? Can you walk me through the steps of a full hard drive failure and need a new HD, how to use this back up on external HD. Thank you… Hey also, what I wanted to back up my files to a windows 8 or 10?

  7. Hi.

    Usually, after every six months I–

    Format My C drive

    Install pirated win 7 ultimate

    Install all driver s

    Install regular used software like firefox, VLC player.

    Set Firefox sync.

    But I dont want to sit hours and do all these procedures every 6 months.

    So, is there any way that I can create some sort of backup image dvd or usb….so whenever I want to install fresh windows..I will just copy those backup file.

    When you install a fresh windows and its driver and other softwares. ..things remain very fast and smooth for a while, before it gets sluggish. So, I want to capture that freshly image of complete windows and paste it on my blank c drive.

    Please don't recommend automated windows install. Because it will not install my drivers and other essential softwares.

    I can burn dvd for those image. But USB is preferable.

    Please help.
