    First, about Microsoft's way of preventing installation and use of NirSofer utilities:

    Just a note on the Apple iCloud issue. It was not a security breach in their system as first reported. Apple says they think it was a brute-force password...

    You're right, Bruce. I am a bit (and only a bit) reluctant to give up on MSE and turn things over to Avast. Avast would have to be my choice, in spite of its tendency to be over-aggressive.

    Which...

    Given how rough Microsoft made August for some of us, I am glad to read that Adobe has had the sense to postpone its patches, rather than impose half-baked versions on users. This shows me that...

    Nope. No Task or Scheduled Updates in my Win 7 MSE 4 installation. I do know that Avast does try to update its program and definitions at startup, and this does take a few minutes to establish their...

    Making shortcuts to Windows Libraries (MyDocuments, MyMusic, MyVideos, etc.) can cause additional issues. When setting aside a Library for Cloud Storage, I would be reluctant to link to a local...

    It would indeed be nice to be able to treat the Cloud Service Folder on my desktop as I would treat a Windows 7 Library. It could contain only the links to the actual files, and I could upload the...

    This is why many authors, including Windows Secrets contributors Woody Leonhard and Fred Langa (among others), have recommending that if Windows Backup just doesn't do it for you, third-party options...

    Acronis True Image Home is recommended by Fred Langa. He does say to try the built-in Windows Backup first, but has also said he approves of Acronis.

    It's true that Android does not require maintenance. In fact, changes are discouraged on most devices. There isn't even Root Access on many Android devices.

    Actually, Android is different from the...

    The problem Fred cited was that PCMatic wanted to update some drivers. Fred is very reluctant to update drivers for working hardware. A System Image Restore would fix any driver updates, but it is...

    It's just that Windows Backup doesn't offer as many options as Macrium Reflect. Although he was writing about Acronis True Image, Fred Langa has not fully endorsed the built-in Windows Backup for...

    Yes, the similarities are uncanny.

    Also, the Ubuntu Unity Launcher has an uncanny resemblance to the old Office 97 and before Office Tool Bar.

    What's old is new all over again! Good ideas...

    Well, OK then. A and B are available in modern Windows and Win PE versions.

    If you like the default options, or are clever to know how to program custom options, Windows maintenance can be ALMOST automatic. There will always be things like finding a virus or false-positive...

    Still, the OP wonders about the wisdom of mixing backup with non-backup content on a single external USB HDD. I personally would recomend against this.
