at first i thought that this is a simple question.. but it's really not! i actually already purchased some apps and tried some free apps and nothing really makes me feel safe enough.
I have some really expensive paid apps on my windows that i need for my work and i don't have any more support for them so I can't purchase newer versions and I really can't reinstall them on a new windows.
I have a laptop with windows 10 that fell and the screen is cracking, still working.. still using it.. but i'm afraid that i'm on borrowed time.
this is an application for my office handling all the clients so it changes a lot, i don't mind doing a full new backup each time.. but the windows 10 native backup thingy and the apps that I use just store the files and I can't really trust it to restore properly on the same machine if i replace the hard drive.
I'm really not looking for a free app here, i'm just looking for the best trustable backup that can copy all my partitions as an image and to be able to restore them on a new drive, not just copy the files, copy the partition table and everything.
really all the apps that I tried just copy files while the windows is still running so i don't really trust it to copy locked files and files that are modified while the backup is running, looking for something that boots on usb stick or something and that can backup everything while windows in not running!
seems like there are lots of options out there and nothing suites my needs, can anyone help me out please?
