I've looked all over the app but I can't find anywhere that tells me if the while disk is being backed up or just a partition.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
So... If I've chosen my whole C drive (my main one) as a folder to back up, then it skips the operating system? How about the programs, like:
~ Word, Excel, etc.
~ Media players that I've downloaded vs media players that come with an O.S.
~ Defrag programs that I've downloaded vs defrag programs that come with the O.S.
Also, if the O.S. isn't being backed up, then why is the folder on my external drive [nearly] the same size as my C drive?
Even if you manage to back up the Windows folder, you won't be able to restore the OS using Backup4all.
You can back up only the setup files of those applications.
Backing up installed programs will not work if you just restore them on another computer. There are also registry files that are not backed up automatically for those programs.
