System image recovery

hello
I have always used a disc to recover an image. A friend told me I am wasting time as he simply clicks on the program button to recover and that's it.
Do you use the program recover button or the recover disc?
TY
Peter

I think that you mean product recovery not program recovery. That's only good as long as the physical HD isn't damaged. You aren't wasting time with backup DVDs or USB drives.

So as long as Windows is not corrupt, you can recover from the program but to be sure use the disc or stick -thank you.

An image recovery with Macrium for example could be performed with the programs recover button. However, in the event that Windows is corrupt it is best to use a disc or flash drive.
Please ask for more information if that is still unclear to you.

It sounds like we are talking about 2 different things. A system recovery from the recovery partition, usually the Q: drive will only work if there is no physical damage, to the hard drive. Creating your own backup DVD or USB drive should be done, on the first day before the internet is accessed. However, there is no reason to create a system backup since a DVD should be ordered from the manufacturer. That way there is no chance, of corruption.

Incremental backups of data are a different story & another process. A backup of a spread sheet that changes daily maybe needed. In that case, only the file(s) are backupped separately.

2 issues

Hello
I think we would need to sit down and discuss this with each other.

When you get a new machine there is a way to create 2 DVDs for re-installation.
Secondly, you can request or make a DVD from the manufacturer or create a DVD from an ISO file for your OS.
Thirdly, images such as Acronis, Macrium, Paragon, Aomei etc. can be created incrementally, deferentially or fully. This can be done manually or per schedule.

The point I was investigating was the feature Aomei boasts which is one click recovery of the image you have created. This can only be done if Windows is not corrupted but this seems like aggressive marketing b/c usually one recovers b/c Windows IS corrupted. At such point you use the rescue disc you created from the program itself. BTW, Macrium has an excellent WinPE which accommodates UEFI.

So does this sound agreeable to you or are we still on a different page?
Blessed Thanksgiving to you and the forum.
Peter

I agree with that. I don't know anything about the one click image.
