Total Back up of Apps and System (XP)





Possum
Hi

I have an old XP computer. If it crashes I will have to spend 100's of hours getting it back. Is there a way I can transfer the OS, driver as well as installed apps onto my external hard drive so if this did happen I can just reinstall it all back. Drivers, Apps and OS..

thx...

use macrium reflect to do automatic daily backup. (it will not slow down your computer)

copy the backup to your external hd manually

create macrium reflect emergency boot disc using cd or usb (just make sure your computer can boot from usb)

depending on the size of backup and speed of your computer, restore will take at most 2 hours.

Back in the day when I was using XP ( Pro ) I had created a custom unattended installation disk and
I had it set up with folder redirection so my user profile was located on another drive.

this was nice and all, but then I discovered CloneZilla
here you just set the system up to your likings, software, settings, drivers, etc...
and then you just clone the entire HDD, partition(s), whatever.
