How to backup and restore your entire netbook drive

March 16, 2009 at 6:09 pm

The Register has a handy tutorial of how to both backup and restore your netbook. It is not talking about backing up a few files here and there but the entire drive. The guide talks about how to duplicate the operating system, updates applications, documents and media files. The guide goes through two methods, PING which requires an external optical disk and also an USB flash drive installation.

After losing a lot of data on one of my laptops a few years ago it is something I take very seriously nowadays. So much so that I now have a server that backs up all of my files nightly and also use Carbonite which backs up files remotely in case of theft/fire. The guide won’t help you with the latter but is well worth a look if you don’t want to suffer too much pain if your hard-drive fails.

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you have
    introduced in your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very brief for newbies. Could you
    please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without
    having side-effects , people could take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
