Should I Image a Hard Drive or Back it Up?

Episode 1608 (1:35:44)

Steven from San Antonio, TX
Carbonite

Steven wants to know if it's better to image a drive or make a backup of everything. Leo says that imaging a drive makes for a quick reinstall that he can put back onto the hard drive quickly. But it's frozen in time and goes out of date quickly. That's where an incremental file backup comes in handy. Leo uses both and recommends that.
