HowTo: create a Drive Image with Uranium

If you want to protect your system against machine failures you need to perform a Drive Image Backup: a full copy of your disk. It’s a long task, the first time it takes hours but for the next copies it will be much faster thanks to the incremental backup support.

Of course Uranium Backup can manage and schedule Drive Image backups. Now I’m going to show you how to configure it.

The first step is to create a new backup set.

Select the backup destination. If you are trying to protect your system against failures it’s useless to store the backup files locally. So specify a network destination, a NAS – NTFS partitioned or the backup could not work properly and incremental backups won’t be supported – is a nice device for data protection. Specify the network access credentials if needed.

If you want to maintain more copies of your backup specify the number. Note that only the oldest will be overwrited at every backup procedure. The second option let you copy the files on the configured common destinations.
