Rescue and Recovery 4.52 - Makes Full Image Backups?

2015-04-23, 15:30 PM

So, this may seem like a simple question to some, but I can not find a conclusive answer yet.

 

I have Lenovo's Rescue and Recovery 4.52 - Windows 7 (64 bit) for my Lenovo T540.  Will Rescue and Recovery 4.52 create a full image backup such that if in the event my hard drive crashes, I can reinstall the entire operating system, programs, etc at one time, without having to reinstall individual software programs?

 

I just don't want to install Rescue and Recovery 4.52 because it is a large program, without it being able to do a full image backup.

 

Thanks

In my personal opinion, Rescue and Recovery is obselete.  For Win7 and later, my advice is to use Windows built-in backup and restore.  You can create both a complete system image (what you are asking about), and also backup individual files/folders in your libraries.

Rescue and Recovery was great for XP and earlier OS when there wasn't any built-in backup and restore functions.  But for Win7 and later, my advice is to use the OS built-in feature.  Hope this helps.
