geez its like you guys read my mind.... i was looking into acronis for windows 7 ; then came along paragon which is free (hence better but its just more crap on my hard drive)
but this seems even better as it is part of windows... definately be using this until i need something better
only thing is it images everything not just data...thus smaller partitions are required
what would a reasonable c-drive size be for windows7... 30gb ?

By youngprosweet so you using drvload to add usb3 drivers ?
By dexsterwell windows backup image size is still only size of actual data used so if c: drive is 15GB out of 200gb used, the resulting image is <15GB due to some compression but it requires the destination drive being restored to be at least 200GB. So if you intend to clone or restore to SSD drive, I'd make partition/disc size close or under the size of your SSD. i.e. 60GB SSD make partition for C drive <55GB. 120GB SSD make partition for C drive <118GB. You only need C drive backed up if you backup data partitions on separate SATA disks.
