Restore disk help needed.

  joatmon 11:35 17 Jul 2008

Hi, Im hopeing that someone can help me, I want to make a Restore disk like the ones that you get with laptops.

I want to set my PC up with all the drivers and updates etc then make an automated disk copy of it so as to save time when ever i have to format, idealy it would be good to just put the CD/DVD into the drive then it would just load without to much input from me.

Any help would be appreciated,

You need Acronis True Image, You create a Image to another Drive, Partition or DVD then start with the True Image Rescue CD and after its loaded point it to the Image. If its on DVD you have to put the last DVD in the computer after Acronis as Loaded into Memory.

The Above restore the Partition, Operating System, all all that was on the Disc at the point that You created the Image

You could advise your friend to get an external drive or a pen drive to back up personal files.

This would help greatly if a pc fault occurs in the future so that she won’t get upset losing pictures and personal files etc.
