How do i do a mirror backup of entire drive?

Post by purplemonkey »

How do i do a mirror backup of entire drive? i assumed in sources i just select folder and then the C:\ drive is that correct? Also if the hard drive goes down and i need to restore the entire hard drive from the mirrored backup is this easy enough to do or am i likely to run into problems restoring to a new hard drive? any help is appreciated!

Hi,

Please note FBackup was designed for data files backups only, not for system backups.
To create the backup, you can add the C: drive as backup source, but you should uncheck the "Windows" and "Program Files" folders.

If the drive goes down, you first need to install Windows OS and the programs. After that you can restore the files using FBackup.
