You can use Acronis True Image Home for all your backup or restore operations. Although the application is easy to use, it provides the user simple features to restore the system to the working state. It allows you to use USB or any other storage method to backup or to use a boot method for restore operations.

The application is updated to reflect latest releases regarding Windows operating systems. You have the possibility to test the application for 30 days. Alternatively, you can check for a review of the application on its application page at Software Informer.

Note: To make it even easier, you can install a boot manager using Acronis Tools & Utilities menu from within the application's interface. If you activate that option, next time you start Windows, there will be the possibility to press F11 to boot directly into the recovery menu.

Also, make sure that when you perform backup, the destination folder is different than the C: drive or the one used to install Windows.

Hey Alex,

Thanks for your suggestion. One of my friend has recommend me to go for Faronics Deep Freeze as well. Its a kernel level restore software which freezes the system so that no malware or virus attack harm it. I like the concept. It also provide the password protection feature. It will really help me, as my kid also access my machine. I will try both software one by one. At least any one work for me. Thanks again.
