I've used a disk image to restore my computer several times and had no problem.

Hi Steve,

 

I respect that old saying, “to each his/her own.”

 

But,  I can’t imagine  going through all of the work and the down time to reinstall all of my complicated software and their individual settings.

 

An image backup, at least for me, is the only way.  So far, I haven’t ever had a problem with Image for Windows or even the very old Ghost backup software way back in the Windows 98 days failing to restore a perfect image of my drive.

 

Everyone Stay safe,

 

James B

Hi Brian,

 

Personally, I wouldn’t restore or backup an image, too much to go wrong, even on the same hardware.

 

I usually reset my PC and reinstall apps.  I can back up my personal data just using Windows, but since resetting a Windows 10 PC is now accessible completely, that’s what I do.

 

All the best


Steve

I would suggest those really interested in what's being discussed also look at the following two recent topics on other groups:

https://win10.groups.io/g/win10/topic/73315213

Windows PE ISO file with NVDA installed
, specifically message, https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/message/73144, if you're looking to source versions of WinPE with NVDA built in.  The EXE files were created using Rufus based on what the original poster said to me when I asked.

For myself, I would not rely on any ZIP utility as my primary system image backup.  There is a reason that system image backup and recovery utilities, and many of them, exist to make the process easier and far more foolproof.
