Re: Backup

What I have done is initiate the restore procedure from windows and if
its the system partition it will say it haas to do the restore with
the cd, and at that point instead of hitting ok, you boot with the cd
and it just works -- I have definitely done this.

Not true. You can't just shove the Macrium rescue disk into your
DVD drive, and bang, zoom, it automatically restores your

You have to initiate the restoration procedure, which requires
sight because there is no speech available when the rescue disk
is loaded.

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

backups for a 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 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.
