When to back up the system
"I can't boot my computer! It looks like I deleted the boot partition by mistake when I resized my partitions. How can I recover my windows 7 with no system disc and DVD??"
Most people never think of backing up their system image until their system crashes and computer can't boot. Virus attacks, hardware/software failures, and improper operation may cause the system to crash and leave you with an unfunctional computer. To avoid the loss and troubles that system crashes bring, create a system image in advance so that you can quickly recover Windows 7, Windows 8 to the normal state.
