vista basic recovery

Recommended Posts

hi

just got a new computer with vista basic  and i was wondering why i cant create a recovery dvd???

i followed the directions to make a dvd but all it did was make a back up of drivers and programs.

is there no way to create on other than what i did. what if i want to reinstall or fix vista if anything should happen

Acquire a copy of Norton Ghost 12 (earlier versions not compatible with Vista) or Acronis True Image. those are the very best for making Mirror Images of your disc. thats what id do, and its what i actually did. i bought a duplicate hard drive to the one in my laptop, and used Acronis to copy it over to the new one, which is my spare.

Now that i have Vista Ultimate, i use the complete pc backup function but before i had Ultimate, i used Acronis. both programs are really awesome. you can back up to a disk, a usb or DVD set.

ev
