Summary:
EaseUS Todo Backup can back up system partition and boot partition to image, so that we recover system to normal state from system image.

When needing to back up the system?

"I couldn't boot the computer, that's a stupid fault, it looks I deleted the boot partition by mistakes when I resize the partitions. How could I recover my windows 7, and there is no system disc and DVD."

Most people never think of backing up system image till their system crash and computers can't boot. Virus attack, hardware/software failure, a wrong operation may cause the system crash, the computer can't normally work. To avoid the loss/trouble which system was broken brings, we'd better create a system image in advance so that we could quickly recover Windows 7, Windows 8 to the normal state.
