I loved Ghost, Used it for many years. I’ve done many hundreds of images and restores with it. We used it to deploy images for clients.
Only a very few gave me problems. Fancy features were few, but it was rock solid, and that whats counts.
It’s not real happy with UEFI these days. And I’m out of the game for client images.

All the Best,
Jeff

OneDrive works. I use it as a place to auto upload my phone camera pictures to and have certain frequently used files available without filling up the phone storage. One may find there is insufficient space unless they buy a subscription. Depends on how much “stuff” you have collected.

The one drive is the single best windows 10 feature. If you are not using it, you are missing out big time.

I decided to use Paragon Backup and Recovery Pro. I had problems with Acronis, Minitool, EaseUS, Macrium and Veeam. They all installed but lots of weird issues here and there. Some wouldn’t backup while others would stop halfway plus other gremlins popping up.

This morning I tried Paragon and was smooth as butter. Just finished a backup. Smile I even installed Paragon Partition Manager. Now to try FreeFileSync! Innocent

I use Easus todo backup for image files, but every couple of months I actually remove the drive and us a stand alone drive clone device to make exact copies on an identical drive. I have drive cloning devices for both NVME and SATA drives. I do image files weekly, which is easy since I have 3 harddrives in my main laptop…2 NVME, and 1 SATA. I am fairly OCD with backups. At 1 time I had 4 identical laptops, but this laptop is a bit too pricey to do that. I may at some point buy a used one identical as it ages, but right now it is to new to find inexpensive duplicate. I do have identical files and programs on a thinner, lighter, cheaper laptop.
