View Full Version : Backup



08-07-1999, 01:01 PM
In PC World Dec 1998/ Jan 1999 issue, backup Windows 95 and Windows 98 had been introduced. After I read this articale, I have some more questions. In case of the system failure, e.g. system files corruption preventing you to enter Windows 9X , how would you restore the files if you use the backup tools supplied by Windows 9X? There are other backup programs like Driveimage 2.0 by V Communcations. However, I find that you need to backup the whole hard drive which may not be necessary and suitable for my case.

I often find that after numerous installation and uninstallation of sharewares..., I need to reinstall Windows 9X and setup again and again all the essential applications. I find the process is boring and unnecessary if I have a 'clean' backup of my c drive. My question is if there is a easy way to backup the whole partition of a hard drive so that I can restore my 'clean' c drive whenever necessary.

No, but now we have people like Stu and Mrs Bump who'll make sure that each and every post is answered, even if it's just answered with an unhelpful post-pad.

Forget the age of the post.
Someone dragged it up - so presumably the question remains?
And they'd like an answer?

Nope, someone dragged it up because they were trying to find something older than the one that was dragged by a n00b.

There is no relevant reason for this to be here.

sorry, but it was a bit of a contenst really, but as you can see posts from ages ago are not answered as well as now, which is a good thing so keep it up......, it is very rare that a post slips through the cracks now....

Use Acronis 8 instead of Ghost. It costs half as much, is user friendly, & makes Images when in Windows. No nees to reboot.
