Full image backup od disk

HP Recommended
Pavilion p6733w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My goal is to complete a full image backup of the disk on this machine.

I’ m using backup software Macrium Reflect this software schedules the backup and has a feature to wake up the machine if it is turned off.

Is this machine wake on LAN (WoL) capable?

What steps are needed to configure the machine to allow it to wake-on-LAN so the backup software runs as scheduled?

Hi,

 

Are you doing operating system backups to NAS?

 

HP may include BIOS network boot options in the Security Menu.

 

I don't know if a consumer PC is going to work with saving operating system images to NAS.

 

Could be sticking my foot in mouth. Never tried this on a consumer PC.

 

Regards

@Edgar47 

Personally, I would advise against doing what you plan to do.

 

First, the network speed is going to dramatically affected the backup duration.  I regularly do 20 GB backups to a local SSD in 15 minutes or less, but if you're doing backups of an entire PC, say 80GB or more, and you're doing that over a 1GB network, you could be looking at HOURS of time.

 

Second, MR will not keep the PC awake to run the backup if you have it set to sleep or hibernate.  So, you are running the risk of having the machine shut down before the backup is finished.

 

Third -- here is an article from the MR forums about using a NAS:  https://forum.macrium.com/Topic10440.aspx
