After seeing a YouTube video on bare metal backup with this program by a "Mike" from this forum, I downloaded it and created the recovery disk. But my screen when booting from the recovery disk does not look like that in the YouTube video. I cannot select my entire hard drive like Mike does, I have to select drive 0 (I think just the partition information, I'm not a techie), then Drive 1 (the data), then Drive 2 (the recovery partition, logical D: on my drive) and back them up one at a time. I am not sure I would know how to reload them using that disk. When I run the full program from Windows 7, I get screens that look more like the YouTube. Is the YouTube made with a paid version? They show a paid home version on their website for $29.95, but when you hit download it jumps right to $49.95, there is not $30 option??? I am looking for a program that will do full image backups, and having an HP 2TB drive, I'm not that worried about backup space. I would just use the Windows backup, but I've heard it may not be reliable?? I don't understand the Windows 7 Backup with image versus System Image, either. I'm kinda flummoxed here. And not too terribly technically adept in these things. Any advice would be appreciated. The closest thing I can get to hitting a button and making a 'carbon copy' of my hard drive, and then being able to slap it onto a newly installed hard drive and having it boot without my having to make any choices is the goal. If it's more complex, it may be more 'flexible' but it will also allow me to goof it up, I'm sure.
