Hi

I can tell you how to backup, but WD Smartware is not going to format your computer…

TrashWolf,

Thnaks for showing. However, I’m not sure Smartware will backup “System” or not. As shown in the backup screen. “System” is not part of the backup???

Smartware will only backup certain file types it WILL NOT backup system files. Smartware will not make a system Image. You’ll need something like Acronis, Paragon or Macrium for that.  I use the Paid version on Acronis True Image.
