    Vista and Win7


    This is the free Macrium version and it takes full images of the 20GBs from the SSD to the HDD. I do not like differentials because if you lose one in the middle, you lose the whole chain. Even when I used to image with Ghost, I always took full images. I do keep all my data in a different data partition. That partition I image too, but on a different schedule.
    Windows7 has an imaging facility, but I do not like it because a), I have seen a lot of people that had trouble with it and b) you cannot mount the images to e.g. copy just one file without jumping thru 7 hoops.
    I trust Macrium a lot more and I have made recoveries on Windows7, Vista and XP at least a dozen times without incident.

    Libraries are doing well in 7 for sure...I like them and be able to parameter what i want to share or not. I anyway think there will be improvement for manies things that are already set in 7, maybe offlines and sync like in pro 7 version should a standard for a home user?

    I'd like to see the next version of Windows run natively and NOT "in the cloud"

    Why not incorporate something like Sandboxie in Win 8?
    The more layers of protection the better. Just my opinion and you know what opinions are like...............
    Anyway I am enjoying all the input everyone has given really like this forum. TIA

    That would be an excellent idea because Sandboxie can be a pain.

    I would like to see a built-in file and folder locking feature. I'm not talking drive encryption like BitLocker.

    The idea would be to go to the file properties, go to the security tab, and click "Password Protect". Then, no matter what your credentials were, it would prompt you to enter the password.
