Sugestions for a free W7 back up software

I normally use Acronis True Image to make clones and images of mu system partition. My grand daughter's laptop needs to have (free) image software and I prefer to use a non windows one. I think this has been mentioned before but could not find the thread. Any thoughts?

EaSus Todo

Paragon

Macrium Reflect

I must point out that I use the paid for version of Paragon hard disk manager and none of the above. If it has to be a freebie I'd go for Paragon first then EaSus.

Jock1e ,I've tried to get the safest download sites for the programs, to the best of my ability, and they should be ok but your warning is still valid.

You might find something on the majorgeeks.com website under 'backup'?.

Thank you, all. I will update my ATI for my own PC's and try EasUS Todo on the other one.

If you download any of the free programs like EaseUS always read before clicking and always select custom installation this allows you to deselect programs you do not want.

I use Macrium Reflect Free for my W7 machines. I was using ATI8 with XP and having tried the free Paragon, Easeus and Macrium offerings I found that Macrium most closely reflected (no pun intended) what I was used to with ATI (especially with the Windows PE based recovery media).
