I completed another project today in just 4 hours that would have taken me over a week to do on the old computer. Funny reversal of roles now. The computer is waiting on me to do something as opposed to me waiting on the computer to update so I can make the next edit. Plus, because I could never play the timeline I would need to do a test render to see how something looked. Also, with these super high resolution file sizes, I had to create low resolution proxies which took a day. I like when the tools wait on me again. On another subject- In the past couple decades I have been creating clone SSD for my C drive every month so if I had trouble, I would just swap the drives and usually very little would be out of date on my clone. It was a good procedure to get back up and running when deadlines were looming. Today, I now am using an m.2 C Drive on the MB for the operating system that can't be cloned with my cloning kit. So I need to get educated on another boot drive OS backup. Is the windows backup and restore a good step? Say my m.2 stick goes dead or completely corrupted windows and won't boot up. What is the simple process to bet back up and running. Do I use a Boot DVD I create now to boot the computer and then just restore to a new blank m.2 storage? The current windows m.2 has 3 partitions. Does the restore create those in the restore process or do I need to manually set that up using the boot media or do I use the original windows 10 media? Does the restore from my backup do all the installed software or do I need to reinstall everything again? I know these are basic questions but it's been many years since I used the windows backup / restore process, back when it was very simple.
