I've been nagged into either buying W7 or returning to Vista HP after a nice lengthy period on the Release Candidate for W7.
So I've gone back to Vista HP as I can't spot an awful lot of difference necessitating the c.£80 spend.
Most of my time since re-installing (from my backup) on Saturday has been spent downloading and installing updates including SP1 and SP2 for VHP. These updates have eaten into my TalkTalk monthly allowance and I was wondering if it was possible to save these updates to disk, so if in the near future I have to reinstall for some reason, I could then just copy the updates off disk and be back at the same stage of updates as I am now on this date today.
I envisage it won't be as simple as I think because the updates appear to be phased so (for example) I get SP1 before I get SP2.
MAJ - I will investigate Acronis and Easeus in due course - I'm still downloading updates, another three last night!
rdave13 Thanks for the link but I don't really want to download them all again if I can help it, although that site tells me SP1 And SP2 contains all the updates to May 2009 which is good information. Unfortunately there are a few GB of updates to download after that for the rest of 2009, then the 2010 updates . . .
Now if I could just find SP1 & SP2 on my C: drive . . . .
Any more suggestions gratefully received before I tick Resolved?
