    Booting
    was around 1:30
    now 30 seconds

    Copying large file
    was 20mb/s
    now 60mb/s

    Not bad.

    A SSD gives immediate speed increase to a system. I've been replacing HDs with SSDs at work. What once was a I/O bottleneck, is now a CPU bottleneck. You can't overcome the CPU bottleneck as easily, unless you can swap CPUs, pending there is a better chip to stick in for your socket type. You can make a Core 2 Duo feel new again, just by switching to a SSD and maxing out the RAM.

    NetB (and anyone else too), in case you're interested, I got an email from EaseUS offering big discounts on their products right now. Partition Master Standard License is USD 15.98. The offer is valid until July 31. You can check the offers here

    Hey guys. On Cyber Monday, I bought a Dell laptop (Inspiron 15 3000) for under $200, 15.6", 500GB, Celeron. It's mainly for my mom (and whoever wants to use the computer). Though my mom now rarely use the computer. The reason is her old one (which used to be my sister's) is very VERY old, around 10 years old, Dell Inspiron B130.

    It's really good computer for basic needs. BUT it doesn't have a recovery partition. So before I do anything with it, I must somehow backup (make into an image file).

    When I tried to used EaseUS Todo Backup Free 10.6's "emergency disk" for booting up, it does work, but it cannot see my external hard drive (it doesnt power up).

    Here is what I am trying to do.
    USB bootable backup hard drive software.
    Creating an image of the existing hard drive to external hard drive.

    Any ideas? Thx.

    Nvm, I got it...I forgot that I used Macrium Reflect free. It saw my external hard drive and was able to create an image file for the laptop's entire hard drive. And I did test it out by restoring it.
