Answers :

Hi,
I had an RX540 and I can tell you absolutely that you have NO options other than hopefully finding it in the classifieds. Sony is rigid about not only programs but also hardware that originally came with it.

You didnt mention you were having any problems right now so I assume all is up and running well? If so, I recommend 'ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE' its a back up program of my choice that lets you back up the entire operating system or just programs and you can back it up by making restore disk sets or simply cloning the whole drive to another drive. There are other programs that do this but I have tried a few and many times when you back up programs they will restore ok but then ask you for serial numbers. ACRONIS has only done that with one program that I have seen.

So simply..
search for a program that auto-copies all your serial numbers OR mark them down yourself and make some restore discs using Acronis or something similar.

I would also suggest cleaning any old files etc off your drive and running a scandisk and defrag before you do the back ups.(for good quality and speed)

When you back up.. back up the entire operating system AND all the programs.
If you only select operating system, all you will have is windoze.
In the future you can totally foul your windoze and simply boot to the Acronis recovery cd and the back ups ON CD and it will restore your computer.

Or.. do what I do. Once you have everything perfect, simply clone the entire drive to another drive and if it ever messes up just swap out the hard drive like changing a light bulb.*s* (always save your serials.)
By the way, a hard drive needs to be about 1/3 empty to work well and fast because there are windows memory and swap file issues. So free up some space for good performance ok ?

I hope this was helpful. good luck.*s*
