Backing up 1 TB systemdrive- SSD- Which Backup-Software is used here?
backup in the desktop-pc-times with HDDs i used Boot-CDs of backup-software to backup systemdrives.
Now on Ultrabook 1TB SDD i used AOMEI Backupper. beside that i use glary backup on a different SSD. But i cant identify. Forgot to name the drive!
maybe its Windows 10 backup. one folder is called: WindowsImageBackup. directory showing 193TB used. no further data visible showing size.
1. is the latter Windows 10-systemdrive-backup?
2. if drive cannot boot how to recover since i didnt make a bootable stick yet?
Must the backup then on a bootable stick or better getting an external optical drive or making a bootable external SSD-drive?
Reminder: I backup up my systemdrive with these 3 tools:
c) Win 10-Backup.
In search of b and c-data. maybe c found.
maybe best doing one more Glary-backup to a new drive and check.
What must be done to recover this data when systemdrive is not booting anymore or stands still. Thanks a lot.
1) Yes, WindowsImageBackup is a Winows backu. More info: https://www.google.com/search?q=site...2windows+10%22
2) Make a "bootable stick" using a working computer, then boot the computer with the non-bootable drive with it. (Note that Microsoft intentionally does not allow Windows to be installed on an external USB drive).
its systemrecovery-backup. when found external source i could delete oldest backupfile.
thanks a lot
What puzzles me is data on Onedrive. above all since i havent synched it anymore but i pay for more data. should store these externally also. like all my other data. More puzzling on my tiny 64gb-ultrabook. soon no more space. changed strategy on 1TB-ultrabook.
i backup up systemdrive with aomei-backupper. its on an SSD.
now i need a boot-stick to recover. instructions are unclear.
ok here they say image on usb-stick in my case SSD then.!
simply havent yet setup that bootstick. would prefer to recover on a fresh SSD. if its not M2.

M2-maybe best to backup Systemdrive to a duplicate(on external stick or however this is called) Nvme. and boot from a second stick. using thunderbolt for that drive. then replace it internally.
could be worth to try and check.
which container for quick backup:
not speedy enough since not usb 3.1/thunderbolt
how about cloning without pc in a)?

Backup Software on bootstick.
With Aomei backupper which i used til now in windows i created a bootstick. could get the standard free Aomei Backupper but there is not automatic installation. Can i simply copy the exe to the stick?
<shrug> Give it a try and see.
Right Docking-Clonestation for M2 here: IB-2912MCL-C31
New stick GPT setup quickformat.
Ready to boot and backup.
And trying out the backup-stick in Ultrabook.
Cannot boot to stick since using external Keyboard. signal cannot reach ultrabook or F2 is not right.
Cloning externally in Clone-station the only solution here. No access to Ultrabook Keyboard and Screen. External device used. Even if one knows how to blindly navigate Bios F2 can never be commanded in my case.
So i will take out the original Intel SSD6 and clone in station. Then trying if copy will boot.
Docking/Clone-station can run independently from computer.
