Not true. You can't just shove the Macrium rescue disk into your DVD drive, and bang, zoom, it automatically restores your computer from the external hard drive without any intervention. You have to initiate the restoration procedure, which requires sight because there is no speech available when the rescue disk is loaded.

Actuallyk, if you have a recovery disk, you do the restore from windows and it boots from the recovery disk and does its thing without intervention.

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 itοΏ½s
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

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.

home system I'd definitely give EaseUS To Do Backup Free a whirl just to
see whether it's accessible.

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

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.
