Of course, ThinkVantage System Update always wants me to install R&R, and I'm starting to wonder if I should. I have a couple of questions, first.
(1) About how much hard drive space will R&R need?
(2) Can the backup data itself be stored using an online backup service such as CrashPlan?
Note that I *do* maintain current backups of critical data and key system files. However, if R&R would permit me to to a full restore after a hard drive crash, I may want to give it a try.
One possible limitation: I'm running Win7 on a 180Gb SSD, so space is more limited than if I had a 500Gb standard hard drive installed.
Thank you in advance.
I would recommend using either Acronis or Paragon (which I use).
Furthermore, Windows Backup in Windows 7 is improved and I now use that as well for making regular system images of my C: (OS only) partition.

I can also add that I periodically (every several months to a year) make new images, so that if I install applications or tweak system settings along the way, I don't have to do it all from scratch if for whatever reason I am forced to go back to an earlier image.
