This may be an alternative to using Windows. Now most of my 500g drive is 2 files (windows.old and windows.old.000). The price of DVD's are pretty cheap now adays and the easiest way to destroy the data is as I said, shredder or cut up with scissors.. If your Laptop is like others with Vista (including mine) you should have the option to burn Recovery DVDs. Source

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/.....sofile.htm Another Better Free Program but NOT simple. maybe they do on some, after all it is possible to burn one file, ( in my case anyway), and only one file before having to install a new prog. I hope this is able to help.Thank you for posting on the HP forums. Thanks for your help everyone.

I will pay more attention in the future. All packet writing systems that I know of require pre-formatting. Tango Icons © Tango Desktop Project. that is a releif I will now go mess around CHOLThank you.
Grandma Sue, all CDs that contain data to be read will need to be formatted. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2496630/backing-files-dvd.html To change the destination for the backup, click on "Change settings", choose "Change backup settings", and this will bring up the first screen where you choose the backup location. Just been to download IMG burn on the File Hippo site, but a warning from WOT flashed up saying that the site koyetesoft,com was dangerous,etc. MS's Virtual PC works great.

Unless I use Norton Ghost, the Maxtor CD or this last Acronis software, I probably cannot do this, eh? (Sorry to be so dumb, but we have to learn somehow!)

Recovery using a usb recovery flashdrive takes less than an hour to complete.One single scratch on the label side of a DVD from the recovery set and the recovery dvd set Instead of using RAR files why don't you try simply adding (as DATA) the files in the folder till you reach the DVD's limit. So when i install windows 7, it will format my drive and remove and install new windows 7, so does that mean the 90gb of my files will also be removed
DVD's are not erasable, The only way to destroy the data is to cut or shred the dvd. So from a grateful grandma I say "thank you" for giving me piece of mind Reports: · Posted 8 years ago Top ScottW Posts: 6609 This post has been I was about to try this but wanted to BU 'everything' to DVD first. I have installed WinXP Prof + SP 2 but that is all.
My concern is that my camera seems to name the picture file names the same after I upload them to my laptop. imgburn is a hugely complicated program if one wants to lean about burning. Super programme and I love the somewhat informal comments about being an ostrich etc when choosing yes/no option. http://techvividglobalservices.com/solved-backing/solved-backing-up-reinstalling-xp.html I don't use the Backup and Restore Center, but I just did a little test to see how it works.
