Now the reason for doing this is to recover from a bad PC failure. So I boot from the 6 floppies that I have now made, and boot up the PC, will I then be able to use the DVDs (There will be two of them) by simply putting them in the drive or what?
I couldn't agree more if it was my only back up. I already have an image on my second HD so this is a belt and braces job.
Mind you, I sometimes think that all electronic storage is 'flakey' otherwise why are we on about back ups. And then. the printed page also has its problems, such as fire, water, poor quality ink and paper and so on. There comes a time when 'hope' is the only thing to fall back on after one has done ones best.
I have a new PC with 2 SATA HDD's. I was able to create image of C drive to D drive but wouldn't run when booting from bootable CD. After checking on Acronis forums downloaded trial version of latest build 903, installed and created boot disk fom that version and can now boot into trueImage program, check image etc. I have taken it up to the point of 1 click left to restore image but stopped there as I did not wish to go further. However I am as satisfied as I can be that image will restore when (if) required. It appears that the original boot disk problem was due to SATA drives but this has been resolved in latest build.
