    Thanks for all the great responses! Looks like AOMEI Backupper will be a nice fall-back alternative if Acronis can't handle the task.

    I hope to do some initial tests on the new laptop next week.

    I've read a lot of complaints about LogMeIn too, as well as "the sky is falling". I'm not dumping LastPass until I have no other options.

    I also use Acronis (for full weekly backups).

    I have no routine procedure for running CHKDSK / R (maybe never done). I assume there is no way to automate this, since it requires a restart of...

    I am appalled how often I have to restore machines on my network from backup - about once per week. Likely due to the fact that the Windows 7 Pro installations are now 24-36 months old.
