Why so complicated?

Booting to a USB stick and following the onscreen prompts is complicated? Who knew?!

Even easier than hell is just using Windows backup which also has disk image functionality.

Except that Windows Backup doesn't do block copy, it does file level copy, and it stores it as a VHD file layout. Which is great, I guess, if I didn't want an exact replica of the disk as it appears on the platters and I wanted to mount my backup as a VM or image with imagex.

But, since I want a backup that I can absolutely trust and recover, Windows Backup simply won't do.
