Software to backup/clone my Windows HDD

2021-09-17, 8:56 AM

Hi all,

 

I will format my Lenovo laptop in the next few days in order to clean my HDD and reinstall Windows 10.

 

I just want you to recommend me a good backup/clone software that will allow me to have my Windows hard drive on another disk in order to restore if i decide to format again in the future so that i wont have to download and install all drivers from the beginning.

 

First of all which is a better option? Backup or clone ? And which software?

 

Thanks

If in the future you wish to make backup images of a hard drive, I would suggest Macrium Reflect Free and create recovery media to restore it in the event.

I backup all my drives on the first day of each month, bearing in mind I do not save files to my C: drive but on USB, my drive takes 6 minutes to backup.

Backup is always the best method as you can create drives using restore.
