I'm new to using this software and to imaging harddrives. Please tell me if what I'm planning to do below is likely to work and what I need to be aware of.
We have four computers, all running on Windows 10.
I bought a 4 TB external harddrive to be used exclusively to store image files of all four computers, to be used if any one of the computer's hard drives should fail, in which case I would purchase a new harddrive of equal or larger size, install it in the computer, and restore that computer's image onto the new harddrive.
The harddrive info on the four computers is:
Capacity Used Remaining
Computer 1: 1,810 GB 441 GB 1,380 GB
Computer 2: 1,810 GB 247 GB 1,560 GB
Computer 3: 568 GB 238 GB 330 GB
Computer 4: 911 GB 177 GB 733 GB
Totals: 5,099 GB 1,103 GB 4,003 GB
None of the computers is partitioned. All have only C: drives.
Based on what I've read so far, my plan is to use Disk Backup to create each image file. As I say above, I plan to store them all on a single external harddrive dedicated to this purpose alone.
Does my plan appear to be workable? What pitfalls, if any, do I need to be aware of?
