Free imaging software for Windows

He guys. I am posting this cause I cannot stress the importance of having a system stored on an external HDD. The only cost to you is the price of the HDD. But that cost will pay for itself when your system is full infected that you cannot repair it or your internal HDD failures. Use one of these FREE programs shown in this article. My favorite is Paragon. Windows 7 users also have Windows 7 Backup and Recovery they can fall back on. Just remember to ALWAYS make a bootable recovery cd with either of these products.


I've started MalwareTips in 2010 to help people solve their computer problems. My area of expertise includes malware removal and computer forensics. I'm active in the various online anti-malware communities where I do researches for new malware threats as they are released.
