How can I Back Up My New Laptop?

Episode 1572 (13:03)

Jason from Newport Beach, CA

Jason bought a new HP laptop and wants to know how he can back it up while it's still pristine. Leo says he can create an image using imaging software and save it to a USB key.
Imaging options:

  • Clonezilla
  • EaseUS
  • Drive Snapshot
  • Macrium
  • DriveImageXML
  • Terabyte Image for Windows
  • For the Mac, Leo uses SuperDuper. The nice thing about SuperDuper is that one can create a bootable image.

    One can also create a bootable USB key with Windows 10 using Microsoft's media creation tool.
