Drive image..put it on DVD discs or ex.hard drive?

  rotormota 18:41 20 Oct 2004

I am about to create a back up image of my 'C' drive with Acronis True Image....any thoughts on the pros & cons of recording the image either to DVD discs or my external hard drive unit?

My main thought I suppose is should the worst ever happen which would be the best for recovery?

The DVD would be the easiest for restoration - easier than getting a PC to recognise an external drive when there is no OS installed.

Just try to ensure that it works...

What I do is save it to a slave hdd as well as to CD.

I agree with Diodorus Siculus, save to both.
