I agree completely. This Acer Netbook of mine is obviously aimed at a general audience, what with a boatload of games and MS Works and god-knows-what-other junk on it, but it's nontrivial at best to back it up. Especially, it wants to output its System Recovery Disks to DVDs but it doesn't have a DVD writer built-in, nor does it even have the capability to make ISOs!

So I buy a (very cool) program called VirtualCD, which allows me to make Blu-ray "writable virtual disks", but Acer doesn't know from Blu-ray, so I still am forced to make DVD virtual disks instead. It all works, and now I have 3 Recovery.iso files, but there's no option in Acer's eRecovery to read from these disks! No doubt because there was no disk drive in the machine! All that eRecovery will do is either recover your C: drive to Factory (from an on-board hidden partition) or recover your C: drive to Factory (while saving your own personal files to a \Backup directory). Obviously Acer doesn't think their Netbook users are ever going to change the programs they've installed!



There's probably a way to make W7's built-in Backup to work, but afaik this backup method has no compression or other user-friendly features. Oh, and this little Netbook makes a 30Gig backup file! That's more than twice as big as any of my other PCs, some of which have huge video processing programs on them! What the...!
