Last week OS XP stuffed up and we had to wait one week to be fixed

Now it is working fine

What a backup program (run from USB) can I use to create an image for the existing OS to be restored in case of emergency

I prefer to use a rescue USB and external hard drive to store backuped image ??

Macrium 7 (free) will work on XP and you can make an image on your external HDD but you will need to make the bootable rescue USB using Vista or above as it need BCD to boot the windows PE on the USB. BCD is not available on XP
