How to make a backup of the system with Backup and Restore function in Windows 7 - video tutorial

In this video tutorial will teach you how to make a backup of the operating system where you have problems with the system (does not want to boot, blue screen, viruses, etc).
To back up the system we use the Backup and Restore function in Windows 7 a function much improved over previous versions of Windows.
We can even make a recovery CD or DVD that you will use when the system is "dead" and no longer wants to go.
Backup is easy to do, as well as restoration, restoration can be done either from the GUI or using the recovery CD.
To my surprise, Backup and Restore function moves incredibly well, I can say that it moves as well as commercial software from Acronis, Norton or Paragon.
Very useful can be programmed to create incremental backups, they are small backups containing only changes made to the system since the last backup.
Overall I am satisfied with the backup system in Windows 7 can say I'm ready to give up Acronis True Image, True Image software costs money, why give money when you can do it free, well not exactly free, but if all windows have given money why not make use of all options.

    If you remember, I asked what microphone you have to be so good to hear you.
    I bought that room that you've recommended it to me, that A4Tech PK-636MA but nothing Fatz is no different from others in terms of clarity of sound (sounds as "good" as in tutorials coworkers ).
    Question: Is there some setting that I do not know? I noticed that the sound in your tutorial is so high and I think sounds good.

    • or what do you do Sateri capture software, I have Camtasia Studio 7 I button everything on there and the result is the same, the sound is not good at watching catch

        Dragos: Or what to do Sateri capture software, I have Camtasia Studio 7 I button everything on there and the result is the same, the sound is not good at watching catch Cite me

        What we do and what settings to capture software we can not say. That's the secret of our profession and we reserve the right not to disclose it. I still strongly recommend you to use CamStudio which we have already tutorial. You can find it by typing in the search box to the right of the black border: CamStudio, you enter and you will find the tutorial. Know that matter and sound card that you have, nothing put in her microphone billion if it does not know how to manage it properly.

          "What we do and what settings to capture software we can not say. That's the secret of our profession and we reserve the right not to disclose it. "

          And I would say: "Look, sir, there are people today-not altruistic. If there is even such a man among us is enough to restore your hope in humanity and believe that there are still lost ... "

          It seems that remain a naive ...

          • Adrian admin said

            Cascarino:

            I'm curious what you did in altruism for others? What you stand develop projects that have major projects on the internet? Who will help you with tutorials, how many have you done in your life in altruism he's talking about and you think you should have just others but not you? I have not seen at all to get involved with comments to help others and you even like the altruism that speaking of him. Many claims, few facts ...

          • Cascarino said

            I have no claim. Only I admire your modesty. Did you know that the biggest mistake is not to help others, but to be arrogant?

            When talking about altruism not think of me talking. But you. It was a kind of pride in what he will do and what not do. We will also have plenty of water to flow on the Danube until we all get along ...

    I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470. I recently installed Windows drivers 7 and all but I have a problem. When I see a movie or online video fullscreen when there is no image on the screen. Appears smaller than the screen and is framed by some black edges.
    How do I protect my image full screen? I tried all settings but still like Catalyst. Thanks in advance!
    All the best!

      Exactly, have the Windows exactly as it was and how it looks in the day you make backups

      • Adrian:

        yes but you need a program for cleaning eg "tuneup utilities or power suite"
        Needed to clean the registry and traces after restore ..
        I hope I was helpful ..

      Hi Geta .. solution to your problem is very simple ..: Win7 has the "cool" to save one, two, three or how many you had before OS installed on the hard in a folder "windows.old." To get rid of your old windows just to delete the folder .. WARNING! something if you saved your old windows do not hesitate!
      For example in Windows.old \ Users \ (your profile name) \
      Here you will find folders for Music, Videos, Pictures, Desktop, etc. ..
      I hope I was helpful

  24. Nice tutorial, but I still ramam at Acronis. : D

  25. Yeah .. that if you want to persist without reinstalling Windows ul.Spun this because the installation win7 you can save everything you had in partition C so to speak .. , I find it more elegant to install Windows without partitioning in any way .. finally "many many huts habits" Thank you for what you do for us

  26. Cristi has not told us what we do after we create the image we want to restore the system as windows.cand enter where? like restore Windows? many do not know ... from my ex to go with f8 laptop and pressed enter once to be able to get restaurez.dar where you could do a tutorial system restoration after you made the backup if you still camera! good health and increase the job with no 1 site in romania

    razvan:
    I did back up akm 2 weeks now I no longer work at all pc-u windows do not open up as I give back? thanks

    Perhaps you mean "how do I give restore" (as you did backup time)
    If you were careful to say that the tutorial map wizard to create a backup and offers to create a Recovery Disk (which you must do)
    Basically the step "Make Recovery Disk" burn an ISO image to a DVD, make a bootable DVD that helps precisely in these situations to give restore the backup if Windows is no longer functional. However you can use a DVD with the same version of Windows (if you made a backup of Windows Enterprise on DVD 32 bits by which you restore the backup must also be a DVD with Windows Enterprise on 32 bits) to restore backup created

    I have not been sufficiently Atet the tutorial. When you backup, you are what they choose where to save it. We have no way to know which partition / backup location you chose.
    Also, if you wanted to keep only the first backup and no longer automatically make other backups, you must disable the automatic backup (Schedule> Change settings) that you see in "photograph" in the player appears before you start the tutorial video.
    I should be sorry to learn and some English, Schedule = schedule. Schedule Backup = Backup scheduled / autmat

  34. Hi, I followed all the steps in this video. We have created a system image that I put it on an external hard drive. I made the recovery disc, everything went ok! The problem is the following: Backup was to put it on another partition. When the process was over I appeared this error. http://postimg.org/image/e7x3amtz3/
    What causes this error?

  35. Why did you delete the post? maybe there was someone to give me advice!

  36. Good evening.
    I have a question. System backup is stored online. The computer is not working (operating system). How do I can use backups?

    • Adrian Gudus said

      Copa safety (backups) can be stored wherever you want, on your hard disk, DVDs, external hard disk or network to another computer.
      If Windows does not start and you can not access the operating system, you can restore backups ulfacut with DVD or USB stick on which you installed Windows 7 or all of the Backup section of the Control Panel you can create a disk Recovery (Create recovery disk)

  37. I can not select the partition to make back-up. If you stick inserted, I admit it, but I get the message "The drive is not a valid backup location. ' . What to do? Thanks in advance.

    • Adrian Gudus said

      Most likely your stick is formatted FAT 32 and as you probably know this file format does not support writing files larger 4 GB on it. A backup easily exceed this size. Another reason could be a size too small USB stick. Backup storage is usually better to use another partition or an external hard drive. Sticks generally have little storage capacity: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 32 GB or GB. Depending on how many you have installed on PC software, a backup can reach up to 30-32 GB.

  38. hello! I have a problem. can not backup windows. I bought the laptop guy at the store said that I did a backup to DVD. I recently tried to use it but we did not know why. DVD backup has only 223 MB I'm too small. I tried to restart and then give and F9 F12 and tried to give direct boot from DVD but not working. I do not know the cause. I see a window with several options when I came F9 and I selected System Restore and then select the DVD but does not directly take me open it. I do not know what to do. if possible I would appreciate advice. nice ms

  39. ... A great bullshit restoration of windows offered by back up. After I installed Windows with the appropriate updates without installing another program, I made a system image backup with the CD.Cand Systeme began to cough, I did a restore windows and, surprise: Systema was brought to the state before installing the programs that currently back up files, but I kept all roots programs that we install after making backup site. Basically, where it was installed Windows partition has not changed anything in that space occupied before programs remained as busy after restoration with those roots, or how or appoint ... .pam-pam.
