Using NEROs backup tool

  Doire_Bhoy 10:20 20 Mar 2006

I used NEROs backup tool to backup my hard drive.
What exactly does it back up?

Say for instance i re-installed XP on my pc and then restored my backup....would all the software i had been using before the reinstall of XP be restorded too?

Im using NERO 6 by the way.

IIRC the advice given by those in the know has been not to use Nero for backup purposes - I think the reason was due to the way in which Nero names or uses backup files.

I have also tried to use Acronis True Image which i got free with a magazine.

However it only lets me back up to cd and not dvd. This can mean a lot of cds.

Acronis will let you backup to DVD, where is it going wrong.(which version?)

i use norton ghost back up well and is easy to use.

I think its version 8. I got it free in a pc mag. Would it have certain limtations if it was free.

It goes wrong when it asks for the media to save the image to. It just says invalid media when i put a dvd in.

Have you formatted the dvd? I use Acronis True Image 7 and I swear by it, I don't think that yours will have any limitations and I think V 8 is fine. There must be an easy explanation

That's also my method.
