Create a universal backup and keep it updated with VMware or VirtualBox: can I use Snap Deploy for this?
I opened this thread to have a good and detailed guide on how to create a universal backup with Acronis.
I need to create a backup that can be restored anywhere with just a few steps.
Also, I need to be able to keep this backup up to date otherwise I have to update Windows 10 repeatedly after the restore. If possible I would like to keep the version of Windows 10 configured ad hoc on Virtual Box or a similar program to avoid buying a dedicated computer.
My goal is to have a backup that is reusable on different computers. Installing Windows 10, installing utilities, installing Office, making updates, configuring everything becomes too cumbersome and laborious.
Can Acronis help me? What other programs should I get?
How many backups do I need to create for maximum compatibility?
I saw the video about Acronis Snap Deploy but that's not exactly what I want to do because I want to distribute the backup using a USB stick. I fix computers, I don't work in a company and I don't have a server. I would like to open VMware from time to time, update Windows 10, change some utilities or update some programs, redo the backup file and finally restore the backup file on the new computer. I'm not interested in buying servers. I have a small business.
Also I prefer not to have a computer set up for this task. Is it possible to use VMware or other similar programs like VirtualBox?
Is Acronis Snap Deploy sold individually or is it a module included in some other Acronis product? If so, which one?
I opened a thread in the Acronis True Image forum and was sent back here. All the utilities I install are free. I use volume licenses for Windows 10 and Office. The computers I prepare are very different. I can build a computer with Ryzen 5800X, a 2015 laptop, an All-in-one with the Intel E7500, etc.
Thank you in advance
