Always it is very critical to have a backup of your system because in case of any disaster you can easily restore your system from the backup. Backup is essential to restore the original after a data loss event due to hard-disk crash or other calamity.
It is always good to have a software which helps you to do system imaging and/or incremental/differential backups. Disk and Partition Image helps you to instant recovery of your system instead of reinstalling Windows and software. Also if you can schedule the backup then you don’t have to worry about taking backup manually.
I recently came across a free software which offers most of the above features which are normally available only in commercial software. EaseUS Todo Backup Free edition is a really useful freeware which bundles a list of critical and useful backup and recovery features.

After selecting the system partition to restore select the “Universal restore” option and select the destination. But one thing to note here is that if there are no drivers compatible with your hardware, you need to manually specify where to find the driver(s) for specific hardware.

Incremental Disk & File Backup helps you to save time and space owing to only storing changed data since the last backup. EaseUS Todo Backup Free offers incremental backup feature.
