Re: Backup

I also use Macrium Reflect to periodically create image backups of my computer.  But you would still need tech-savvy sighted help to restore the image from the backup external hard drive because the rescue disk is totally inaccessible with JAWS.

I use Macrium Reflect to back up my home computer.  I like that with it’s free version you can do disc cloning.  It is also pretty accessible using JAWS.  You do need to use the JAWS cursor to access some functions, but it it works very well.

Excellent question. VSS is Microsoft's own volume-shadowing driver and technology. Here's the Terabyte Unlimited knowledgebase article about point-in-time technology and strategies.

          It's what I use not because it's the best (as in most sophisticated and allows the most configuration) backup software out there but because of the ease of use of its interface.  My partner is, how shall I put it, not particularly technically inclined and he can run a routine backup with it because once you set it up it's just a "click and run" affair.

           In doing a quick whirl around the main program page with NVDA just now I can easily land on the Recovery, Backup, and Advanced buttons.  I cannot seem to get over to the main column of setup buttons on the left side, but I'm not great with any of the newer navigation methods like Object Navigation, so these may be accessible via a method I don't normally use or could be entirely inaccessible.  In the event that they are entirely inaccessible, if you have assistance to set up your backup schemes you can definitely run them without any assistance, as that pane allows accessibility to all buttons.
