Using with system partition RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an HDD with 2 partitions, one for the system files and one for the installed software. I have a backup HDD. I use Partition Wizard Disk Copy to make a backup of this HDD. Time consuming, but at least the backup HDD will boot if needed as a replacement.

    My question is, after doing a Disk Copy, can I safely use SyncToy in Echo mode to regularly run backups of these 2 partitions? Will the backup HDD still be an immedaite, succesful replacement for the in-use HDD? (I'm thinking of the registry, which changes when one installs and uninstalls software.
