How to Backup System and Data Partitions with this Free Backup Software?
Select Backup from the left sidebar, and there you will be greeted with the two steps that we mentioned you need to go through in order to set up a backup.
First step is to choose the partition or disk that you want to back up. In the previous step, you could setup a system backup. After that you need to select where the backup is gonna be saved and click on Start Backup to actually start the backup process.
That’s it when it comes to back up. If you want to restore the backup, you need to select the Restore utility, select the created image, destination partition and that’s it. Image above shows us the partition and disk cloning utility, which works pretty much the same like backup does. To adjust backup image splitting or compression, open up Settings from the menu at the top.
