Easeus Todo Backup, I used to use Acronis True Image, but Easeus is superior and not buggy at all.

Personally I use SyncToy which is incredibly simple to use and works perfectly for me... I'd love to backup online too, but most of the plans are so expensive :(

Macrium reflect for now... Can anyone suggest one that can boot to recovery before loading the OS, like acronis (press f11 to recover)??

Redo Backup and Recovery. http://redobackup.org/

 

Works well with Linux and Windows. Nothing to install, either. It runs off a CD or USB stick. I used unetbootin to get the iso onto a stick and have never looked back. Boot to the stick, run your backup, and move on. For bare metal restores, it rocks!

 

Oh, and it's free and open source. :heart:

I do not like Macrium Reflect interface and True Image 2013 is unstable.

 

I use AX64 Time Machine. http://www.ax64.com/ Cheaper and the best! There a more advance version coming out soon for multiple partitions. It is pretty new just to make sure you know but it is improving daily.

 

Even got True Image 2013 for $10 but didn't want it.

I'm new to Windows 8 and what I have a friend, who's been a Windows user for many many years(great to have one of those around) tell me is that there's a built-in backup solution called File History. So I opted for that. I guess it's called Windows Backup here. It's backing up to a seperate harddrive.

 

If it's any good I have yet to find out - so far so good. I'm only a few days in.

 

I'm looking in having a seperate full backup on an external drive so I'm following this thread.
