I have just finished Installing Win 8.1 and all my Audio Applications onto an SSD. I now, before something inevitably goes wrong with Windows 8.1, want to create a clone of my C: Drive and store it onto an External USB3 HD so that if anything goes wrong I can simply plug USB3 External HD into my PC and use the Clone.
How do I do this? Do I have to make the USB3 External HD Bootable? I’m really unsure of how to use the clone once it has been put onto the USB3 drive.
Any help on this would be incredible because I simply cannot afford to waste the time of reinstalling so much software all the time.
Ideally I would just have a second SSD that would just have the cloned information on it and when I want to use it, simply swap the SSDs (and recopy the clone onto the other SSD. Its a big waste of an SSD though so would rather I didn’t have to do this.
Thanks for any help
