Back up Ready ?????


Recommended Posts

Do you have a fully back up setup?????


every one wants to help--- but not every one can..not every person has the same PC. nor every one use the same os---- every one will differ on how ,


as i see this over and over the pain and grief ,frustration...that shows itself

on posts made..


Learn to back up properly ...


now a very simple thing if you have a back up CD you made from the os

not this restore crap on the" Boot drive" ,,a fully backed setup -


1 a image on a separate hard drive--


2 a boot sytem disk that would give you accsess to the pc than the drive

where you placed the image...


3 you would boot and replace all your system drivers only..


4 presto its fixed all and every thing is put back in place

So now you have almost a clean PC

baring a few program's you would have to reinstall



this Os system restore is ok ,but useless if you cannot reach it


You Should have a fully back up image file plus a boot system disk

Where it will do this for you ,Talk to gay bear he can redo his pc in 15 minits



-----------redone every 3 or 4 new installs ------------------


But not every one would !


advice-- when all this is over you have learned,will never forget talk about it years from now the day you made your first backup CD..

hi itsmejj


everything you wrote is right and wise but one thing you must consider


The recovery disks must be created just after the set up of your system to ensure that they are clean in order to restore the system and be sure your pc is clean at the extreme case u have to do it


the back-up of the rest data is an other matter and is separated from the value of the RECOVERY-DISKS

A note for advanced & experienced users.


I would advice to install the Recovery Console in Windows XP for the users who have hard time accessing to an XP installation CD, when they have a chance of one time access to the installation CD, or Service Pack installers or who doesn't carry an installation CD in their trips.


The definitions below can be modified accordingly, if you have i386 folder C:\i386 in your PC/laptop or Service Pack is different.




How to install and use the Recovery Console in Windows XP.






Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.






Install the Recovery Console by using files in the Windows XP Service Pack Installation folder.





As mentioned in the title, the procedures should only be practiced by Advanced & Experienced users.


I hope this will help as a guide to people who can not start windows in Normal or Safe Mode!!!

Saved me couple of times from installing an image.


This is not an alternative to Backup or Image.
