Software recommendation: system one-click backup restore can be so simple

In the past, we used Ghost to achieve one-click system backup and restore. Nowadays, there are more and more devices with UEFI architecture and GPT partitioned hard disks, and Ghost’s support for these new technologies seems backward and incompetent. With “Easy Digital One-Click Restore”, a free software, you can achieve one-click backup and restore of Windows systems including those with UEFI architecture and GPT partitions.

Since system backup and restore involves significant data security issues, inadvertent improper operation causes the tool to be uninstalled, which will bring great inconvenience to backup and restore. Therefore, “Easy Digital One-Click Restore” will ask for an uninstall password at the beginning of installation, so it is recommended to set this password.

1. Use System One Click Backup Restore

If you have no special requirements for backup options, use the default settings of the software, just one click on the “Backup” or “Restore” button to backup the system or complete the system restore (Figure 1).

If you need to customize the backup or restore items, you can set the backup partition and the backup file storage location in the “Backup options” window of the software settings window. If you want to increase the backup efficiency, you can select “Incremental backup” after the first backup, so that only the changed files will be backed up each time. If you have strict space requirements for the backup file size, you can select “High quality compression” via “Compression mode”. If you need to keep the system backup files confidential, click “Set password” to encrypt them so that you need a password to perform the operation when restoring. In addition, you can exclude folders that do not need to be backed up by using the “Select folders to exclude” button to reduce the backup file size (Figure 2).

For each backup of system files (including incremental backup files), there is a clear time point record and a list of corresponding backup images in the “Restore Options” setting window of the software. If you need to restore the system at the backup point in time, just specify the image file to be restored in the Restore Options list and then perform the restore operation to restore the system at the specified backup point in time (Figure 3).

2. Use the backup and restore automation function

If you are worried about the difficulty of restoring your system after a crash, you can make a one-click restore boot disk through the software menu and use this restore disk to automatically boot into the restore environment in case of an accident (Figure 4).

In addition, we can also use a hotkey to automatically enter the recovery environment to restore the system before booting Windows. This is done by first specifying the capture shortcut and timeout seconds in the “Startup Options” tab of the software options window, and also by checking the “Install startup items” checkbox to enable the hotkey to enter the recovery environment before pressing the power button and starting Windows (Figure (Figure 5).
