If you have a very long password and 2nd factor authentication (Google Authenticator) then it is ok. It fulfills the need for an offsite backup. However, having a physical external drive is the best.

I don't think bt cloud is for storing things as large as a backup system image. My system images made by Macrium are 17 gigs in size. Maybe buy Google Drive storage, ~$2x.xx for 100 Gb.

What part of Macrium did you use to make the 17GB system image?

I have been using the free edition & does not image the system.

I have not a spare hard disk, can a system backup be tested on a virtual disk?

Do you have disk space on your drives to hold that restored image?

What did you use to create the system image, Macrium ?

I've merged all three of your threads together. Please do not start multiple threads pertaining to this same subject about back ups but rather keep replying in this one thread until the matter is resolved. Thank you.
