Yeah, I'm not going to do anything about my Win7 laptop either. I have learned that if I leave it on 24/7, I don't have problems with it. I think I'll keep it around just as is.

Mine is showing just over 1/2 of what I am paying for.

I'm patiently waiting for T-Mobile's eventual rural 5G broadband service, which is promising schmucks like me an average 300Mbps download.

Thanks Guys, actually before I formatted the PC, I was checking what programs I had installed and Macrium was there, but I did not know what it was,
tomorrow I will make the image, I will give a try to Aomei.

Thanks
Nic

As an FYI, I have been meaning to try Aomei Backupper Standard Free after reading many positive reviews. I finally installed it this morning and I have to admit that I'm very impressed. It is super easy to use with a very clean interface.

For now I have both Macrium and Aomei installed, as nothing says I can't have both. :)

Don't forget that there are 2 CellSpot devices. One is a router that functions as a microcell, and the other is a signal booster. Take a second look at my previous poast regarding this subject:

CellSpot vs. CellSpot

As I understand how these products work, you should avoid the router (microcell) if you live in an urban area.

I have read some of that, I don't understand what the big deal is.  VZ was never very prompt with updates either.

Just FWI, there are also complaints about the Cell Spot interfering with home networks.  The reason is the Cell Spot places a priority on T-Mo cellphone signals within the home wifi system.  If the router signal is not strong enough, that priority takes signal from things like other devices or, for instance Netflix, rendering them all but useless.
I know the ASUS router over comes this problem nicely. 
Still planning on switching early Feb.

Happy New Year to you as well. I was an EaseUS fan until I found Macrium Refleck.  I use it to do regular backups as well.  One of the things I like about Macrium is that it has a "memory."  I store backup images on a spinner drive that I disconnect from the motherboard when I'm finished. When its time, I reconnect the drive and Macrium "remembers" where the image is stored and removes the old copy when you make a new one.
