WUBI: System Recovery Overview
Handy Backup / Features / WUBI: Dismissing Bootable USB Drives
WUBI for backup is a truly fruitful idea! Let us be clear about what we are talking about here. Ubuntu for Windows easy installer (WUBI) can help Linux dummies to get used to a new OS. WUBI allows installing some versions of Linux as Windows applications. So, every time you turn your computer on you get a chance to decide what OS you want to use at this session.
In data protection software, specifically the disk image backup software, WUBI is a smart option for getting your system backed up without logging off the OS. In Handy Backup, WUBI gets decidedly outperformed by Volume Shadow Copying magic for snapshot taking.

The smart utilization of VSS Writers in Home Professional brings the magic of on-the-run full disk image backup. From now on, taking a high-quality snapshot requires no in-out logging between different OS.
WUBI performance is very convenient, but has one disadvantage: if you someday want to switch over the Linux OS (deleting Windows), it will be rather difficult to save all you data, that you used in Windows (especially on the system disk).
It’s the time to speak about WUBI and backup. One of the most useful solutions if you use WUBI is to back up all data and recover it after reinstallation of Linux.
WUBI in Windows 7 is as convenient as in other Windows OS and may be used for safe backup and efficient recovery (in case of Windows OS crash) by means of the Ubuntu Windows app.
The main benefit of WUBI performance is, that you may back up in a romp your Windows OS, all files and folders, without thinking about data lock. Because of the fact that Linux works using mainly RAM, there are also no problems with self-lock.
The other benefit of WUBI in Windows 7 is a simple disaster recovery capability in case of OS crash. Everybody knows that Windows OS is rather susceptible, but making a smart WUBI and backup preparation, it’ll be simple to repair all in seconds.
Linux backup software, such as Handy Backup, grants reach functionality for data copying and restoring. For example:
All this items may be easily recovered, using the certain software. The only disadvantage of the whole method “WUBI + backup” is that it’s rather hard to do something in case of HDD failure, fortunately though statistically this occurs very rarely.

We also have to be aware, that there is also alternative inner Windows OS capabilities instead of WUBI, backup, even in the “hot” variant may be performed by VSS technology managed by Handy Backup. Using VSS writer and our backup software, you can make copies of even system files and folders, and databases, which are currently used.
