I've been using Macrium Reflect[^] since January, and I'm pretty happy with it: once set up it just works.
Currently my setup is configured to do incremental backups daily and full backups weekly, with a set rotation of 6 weeks (i. e., backups older than 6 weeks get overwritten)
You can freely configure what disk or subdirectories to backup and where to put it (just needs to be on a different drive). If your PC isn't running at the scheduled times, the backup will run the next time you turn it on. When it starts, a dialog will pop up that will let you defer it, but I never really needed that as it doesn't interfere with running applications or even games.
Restoration works pretty well, too, and I even used it once to clone my installation to a secondary SSD.
Speed is great: the initial backup of my fresh Windows 7 installation (~36GB) took ~70s (source: SSD, target: SSHD). Windows 10 was similar. Incremental backups take less than a minute, spending most of the time searching for changes.
The backup data is compressed, and that greatly helps for writing the data onto my SSHD as even a full backup fits into the SSD write buffer. Obviously it would also help in case you wish to store your backup on an USB drive or other external drives with a low(er) bandwidth connection.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
Well, thats Nagy for the day(s). I remember going to France with my Parents and going into a cafe on the dock side (@ about 06:00) and there were some Dock Workers and I assume from the smell Fishermen drinking shorts with a French stick with Bacon (Breakfast of Champions)
From the brief look at some MATLAB code I saw it seemed to BASIC oriented with bits O' Pascal & C stuck in to (presumably to get around problems) and I was a little supprised it could create Exe's, Ihave only seen scripts generated...
Yesterday I devolved almost a full month pay for my new PC. Since I need two ancient DDR (PC400) modules for my dad's dinosaur I ordered them too so to bundle it with my shipment.
They actually called me to be sure I didn't buy them for mistake I was kind of expecting that but it's still failry rare for a commercial activity to put that much attention to the customer's orders. I'm now a little less worried about the order!
Nice to know that there are still people worrying about users.
Maybe is human kind not so lost as I thought
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I ordered my rig from a shop in Tuscany (I'm in Piedmont) and people there are generally nicer and more caring about customers, it's 3 years I attend to a big Comic con in Tuscany and I've always been treated exceptionally well.
Also it's a shop/workshop where you can send your PC and have it returned safely overclocked or order the pieces and have it assembled and overclocked, with delicate operations as delidding.
And they're about 10% cheaper than the cheapest italian online vendor I know (buying from the US isn't convenient because expedition and customs make up entirely for the difference in price but I'd have more trouble returning faulty items).
