How to backup before hdd crashes


Radpop

Recommended Posts

Laptop's cold boot noise is back, maybe originating from hdd. What can I do now to backup my Windows 10 system in a that way that it could be transferred bootable to a new ssd if recent hdd fails to play anymore before I get new ssd.

 

Is something what I already have usable after crash:
- external hdd drive
- Easeus Todo Backup home 10.6 Pro
- usb 4 GB, 8 GB, 32 GB
- dvd drive and empty cd's
- Easeus system backup in external hdd drive
- Easeus WinPE Emergency boot usb

 

Second question: If I do clean Windows 10 install to ssd, can I use my recent Easeus system backup? Or what I need?

If you already have a system backup.  Then provided your DON'T create any new files on dying drive, then you can restore this image to the new SSD (if it fails... you still have the mechanical HDD source)

 

What you NEED is to have a bootable recovery USB stick created from EaseUS backup or a CD/DVD (depending on what they offer you) - EaseUS WinPE Emergency boot usb

So that you can COLD boot this and then point it to your D:\Backup10\System Backup (hopefully this is actually on an external USB drive)

 

There is no need to install a copy of Windows 10 on the SSD before you do the restore process.

Yes, you can.

Just Install Easeus and restore your backup.

It isn't but I've transferred copy of latest system backup to external hdd and also all critical files.

 

Cold boot noise isn't anymore cool. I'm not sure it's hdd but I hope it's because it's easier to fix. If it's fan, I have to screw my laptop to atoms. I think the resonance during bad noise is more on the hdd side than fan side.

Q - How do I back up Hard Disk before crash?

A - (Expert Advice)  First use a backup software to back up your Hard Disk to any other disk. Then take out your hard disk and throw to the wall with lots of force. Now you have a back up of your hard disk before it crashed. :win:

It's good to have hard drive backup but my hard drive is okay!

 

Vibration center locates near the vents and fan.

I was Aomei Backupper user but then last two integrity checks failed so I changed to Easeus.

I have found the one mentioned above to be best here. You can clone whole drive partition - including the OS data, if you want in it.

Long time ago i used Norton Ghost to backup now i stay with Paragon for clone and backup data from 1 disk to 2nd offlane disk (pluged only during backup or rollback)

And also use SpiderOAK for cloud backup.. Why Spideroak is better than dropbox and other ... Because they put all on privacy and security zero-knowledge "end to end" and "Point-in-Time".
 

Spoiler

 

SpiderOak One Backup ensures all of your data is protected before even leaving your computer. Data is encrypted while in transit to, and at rest on, our servers
 

We built our products from the ground up with end-to-end encryption because we believe you shouldn't have to blindly trust anyone. When you have something worth protecting, privacy and security are everything. Your data is yours, and should always be in your control. Encryption should not sacrifice usability.

We call this No Knowledge, and it's the foundation of our products. We have No Knowledge of your password, any data stored on our servers, or the metadata associated with your files. 

 

SpiderOak's backup products have a feature called Point in Time restoration. This allows you to restore a folder or set of files as they were at a specific point in the past. Ransomware can infect your files and overwrite them, but with point in time you can restore them as they were before the infection. Hard drive failures can be overcome by restoring to the time before the failure occurred. For Enterprise and Groups administrators, this allows restoring employee files, as well as files and folders that had been placed on purge hold.

 


1)I can recover full system and other partitions to another disk
2)i can also recover only selected files from specific restor point which i done previously ofc
3)With SpiderOAK i can hold files in  cloud and share mybackups beetwen few devices and if will be virused i can restor old files copy before ransomware infected mine files in cloud and only i have access to this files.
