Windows 7 Image Backup & Restore

Specs: Windows XP, 3 GHz / 1919 MB
The posts and other instructions I see on the internet lead me to believe that I can do an image backup and restore using W7 backup. Is that true? Can I make an image of the entire system disk, third party programs, the registry and everything else on the system disk and restore it later if I need to. My brother with WXP uses Acronis True Image and is very satisfied with the results. He has "restored" several times. Says it is easier than spending all day trouble shooting.

Yes, Windows 7 does come with the Complete PC Backup & Restore feature, but backups to a network location are only supported on Windows 7 Ultimate & Windows 7 Professional.

I have a second HDD (300GB) in the computer. I got it because I was going to backup like my brother. I have W7 Home. What can I do?

You need to create a full system image of your machine & store it on the second HDD. That way, if you run into a system disaster you can restore the system image via a system repair disc that you'll be prompted to create at the completion of system image creation process.

It's a pretty simple process: Click Start, type backup in the Start Search box & click backup & restore or back up your computer from the options displayed & follow the prompts.
