Win PE in the context I am using is as Brian said a Pre-install
environment with the addition of NVDA and some extra apps like
paswword resetting your windows password and backing up your
PC,put together by a blind person. I cant remember his name but
this was invaluable before win10 introduced narrator in the setup
side of windows. It appears it is still a good tool for backup'ing
your PC since all backup solutions I know of are not accessible
during a restore.
Here is a link to my copy of the win10 version.

is win PE?
have bee able to back up systems before, but for some
reason, I can't find the back up.
Then this sounds like the best solution for blind people.
unless you want automatic incremental backups that is.

you can run Win PE, just use 7Zip for the image.
system I am using now was zipped and unzipped onto a new
drive with 7Zip and Win PE.
you don't need to zip up pagefile.sys and hyberfil.sys
in the root of C:, as windows makes those fresh when
they are not there, they are just temp files, and each
one equals the amount of RAM your computer uses.

create a system image.
Will it run within Win PE?

I did need a bit of sighted help to
Which is true of the vast majority of backup/restore
software because the restore process takes place without
Windows itself actually being running, meaning there is no
screen reader support.
Most of my sighted clients have no idea how to do a
restore even if they wanted to, but several have been
very, very thankful indeed that they had a backup that
they'd taken on a regular cycle when they had storage
failure (whether HDD or SSD) but had to have me do the
actual restore. It sure as heck beats losing all the data
one acquires over years on most computer systems!

than a framework upon which great things have been

entirely Constitutional are not "in the
Constitution," but are allowed under it.
