COMPLETE SYSTEM BACKUP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently a Windows 7 Beta user and will be downloading the new Windows 7 RC candidate release on the 5th of May. It was requested I do a complete system backup of my Files and Programs, which I am currently in the process of doing. My question is, How long does it take to complete a back up. It is now going on 10 hours and the progress indicator is still at 15% complete. Is this backup necessary? Should I just wait for the final release? Is there a faster way to back up my system? My files and programs are using 74GB of space out of 250GB available but it seems my recovery drive "D" once had 10GB and it is only showing 948MB remaining. Is the backup going to this drive as a shadow copy or should I be using a Partician on my present drive to do a backup? Please reply to my personal email address, jhaskins75@comcast.net or jrha1_29@msn.com, Thank you...
