Windows 8 Backup for image backups

  1. #11

    Actually, it doesn't matter. The back up failed!! Error message was not enough space. which is ridiculous. The drive I tried to back up is Drive C - 40GB used. The target drive has 150GB free. It created a 6GB file, but clearly not successfully. If I cant handle a simple backup, I give up. Some part of Windows 8 are fine ; other are quite pathetic, after all these years.

    Will try Ease US (Ver 5.3) next. I used Acronis in the past as well, so thats another option as is Marcrium.

Does Control Panel>File History>System Image Backup overlay the previous System Image Backup if you use the same device? Is there anyway to keep multiple versions other than use a different Partition/Hard Drive/USB Drive?
