|Your niece's laptop probably uses a manufacturer's backup solution or a preinstalled recovery option & therefore the menus are already in place.. |
A manual backup requires a-somewhat-different procedure & here's this site, because I couldn't find a Micro$oft page w/screenshots (only these 1s @ microsoft.com/uk/windows/products/windowsvista/features/details/backup.mspx & windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Restore-your-computer-from-a-system-image-backup).
Like some1 else said in THEIR signature.. "i would appreciate if everybody that has received help from me to say if my suggestions works", tnx.
SagoMT - restoring the backup will wipe everything as-to-b4 - so, why re-install Windblow$?!??
Oh my Goodness, you're falsely stating that a reinstall is needed before restoring, so that you may advertise a product that you're selling, complete with an affiliate link: "&Sku="
"With the Vista back up, you need to re-install windows then restore from the backup file you created. Having your back up on the same drive, just within another partion is not a great idea. If your hard drive crashes you will lose everything.
Your best bet is to get an external USB hard drive and have the backups go to that, they have really come down in price, here is a 1TB on for $75
This also prevents you from accidently wiping out your backup partition when you do the reinstall that is required before you can restore your data.
^^ Come on, lol, what kind of deal is that. Your post has been voted down, I think for good reason.
