Using DiscWizard to back up system.

  Laser157 13:02 01 Dec 2003

When installing my new Seagate HDD I used the DiscWizard software and copied all my existing drive onto it using this program. It strikes me that I could use it to copy my new drive back to the old one as a periodic backup of the whole system. Has anyone used this software in this way and were there any snags?

Not used it, but would recommend using NortonGhost or XXCopy for a process.

have a look at this for backup info.

Thanks Diodorus Siculus for the link. A lot to digest there, but I will have a good look through it. I'll leave the post in case I get any takers who have tried using DiscWizard.

If it worked one way there is no reason why it shouldn't work the other. I would suggest though that you format the disk first before doing each backup. I personally use xxcopy from click here but I have to reformat my backup disk before each copy.

Thanks pj123. That was my thinking too. I think I would also have to format the backup drive before using DiscWizard.
