Thanks for the quick response! What about the 1.7 GB WAIK download I read about? Guess I am confused already! LOL!

That was for a previous version of MR free. It now just downloads the components it needs. In the case of PE3.1 that is just short of 200MB.

Yes. It may take some time to complete the rebuild.

I'm just about to sign off for the night so if you have further questions it will have to wait for the morning.

Just wanted to say that today I created my Rescue CD. Then follow the test set up in Post #33. No problems. Then created an image of my C: drive on my external HD!

Thanks to all of you for providing such a wonderful resource that helped me so much! Reading all the posts was most helpful, and having kado897 provide on-the -spot answers to my newbie questions was a real bonus.
