    Question Help! SSD backup programs.

    I have just bought a very nice HP Stream running Windows 10 Pro on a SSD.
    Problem is that neither my Acronis versions, or OMIE backupper can see the drive.
    Can anyone recommend either a free or bought App which will do the job?
    It has no optical drive.

    The built in backup gives no choices & is far too slow.

    Active@disk Image, use it almost daily, works perfectly fine in W10 http://www.disk-image.com/

    Scroll down the page a little to show what versions do what.

    If you wanted to try it first, get the Professional Trial version, free for 21 days. http://www.disk-image.com/download.htm

    You want the Installer & Bootable CD/USB. Size: 272 MB That includes the option to make a bootable CD (this is what I use almost daily)

    One thing positive about Windows 10 is that there is never a dull moment anymore on ye olde computer

    I forgot to mention, the drive is "eMMC" which OMEI does not support.

    If you want free, use the very capable and reliable Macrium Reflect Free.

    I forgot about that, I have the CD's but as this toy doesn't have an optical drive I would have to use an external drive. The professional active@disk image is only $67 so will probably buy a license.
