    Sure, I was hoping you could do a quick brief on how to keep documents, pictures, one drive and OneNote files and any other relevant documents backed up to the non macrium drive like you were showing at the 2:00 minutes mark in the video thanks

    Thanks for taking the time to do this, it is appreciated. I was looking for a guide like this and a proper backup solution and I've used a free version of Macrium Reflect and it worked flawlessly.

    Is it best practice to get it direct from them direct as I'm UK based? Cheers Phoenix :)

    What do you mean get it from them mate? Just get the free version you do not NEED the paid version unless you want to do incremental backups which I am against. I just take one backup when I first install Windows and configure my main settings/ library folders before installing any drivers or software, I name that Windows (for the image name)

    then once everything is installed from Games to Software, Micro$h4ft Office, Adobe CS Suite 2018, and the rest of my software library, I then create another image called ALL OK and be done with it. All of this using the free version.

    Download Macrium Reflect

    Once you download it, make sure you right click on the file, go to properties, then hit UNBLOCK from the bottom right as the file would normally be blocked since it came from the internet, then run it as admin and choose the free version to download NOT home.

    Great thanks, I was about to buy the full version but I only want to make a one off copy of my laptop in case anything goes wrong so the free version will do. I back up all other data myself depending on what I'm using but to be able to quickly restore the laptop is perfect for me.

    Appreciate your help.

    Yes, thanks for the excellent youtube guide, Phoenix.
