Do any members who update AVG also update their recue floppy disks also.

If so, can you clarify how many disks you have and update and what do you name them.

You should update the rescue disks after each update, however as i can't get my Win XP box to create a rescue disk (long story) i don't bother....

Always do the floppies but have no idea what to do with them or when to do it. Would a kindly pundit please instruct.

What we are supposed to do is go online and update our AVG proggie (now 324) and after doing so, we should update our disks by going through the "create disk" procedure.

My troubl is that although I have done this for many months or years, it has suddenly said, disk was not created.

On my normal forum, there seems different views on how many diskd we should have and what we should do.

If there is a techie expert out there, I would appreciate some clarification on subject and said in a step x step way please.

Never used a rescue disk from AVG in my life.

Me neither but here is the answer acording to AVG.

What is Rescue Disc of AVG Anti-Virus

Rescue Disc of AVG Anti-Virus is a special floppy disk(s) on which the most important system areas of your computer are saved. The contents of Partition table, Boot sector and other internal data are stored here. These areas are often targets of virus attack and this damage could cause a malfunction of your computer or Operating system ? for example, your computer will not start.

Reparation of such damaged system areas could be very complicated. But if you have created Rescue Disc, you can do it by easy and safe way.

With a backup copy of system areas on Rescue Disc, it also stores a special program, AVG-SOS, intended to service operations.
