Windows 7: Backup DVD format fails

17 Dec 2009   #11

Ubuntu 10.10 64bit, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

ha, to heck with that. I'd rather start fresh than do with the ways they used to back in the days of backups with floppies.

What on earth's the point of DVD backups on an OS whose footprint is way over the capacity of even dual-layer DVD media? Use a separate hard drive, whether it's one inside your PC, external, within another PC on your network, an NAS, whatever... and whilst you're mulling it over do yourself a favour and get Acronis TrueImage 2010

Do you get a WinPE recovery cd with Acronis, or does it only come if you buy the extra plus -pack?
