    Yes I agree with the old saying, if it ain't broke don't try and fix it. Will defo consider that from now on in. Sorry to keep you but do you mean make a back up disc!

    A system image (a backup) is a single file that a backup program creates, and that single file can be used to restore your PC back to how it was when the backup was made.

    I make two daily, one AM and one PM.

    Windows backup utility sometimes gets a bad press but I have to say that it works and works well. Its simple and limited in features but ultimately it does what it says on the tin, it creates a backup file that you can restore from.

    And just to add, the image file is normally made to a separate USB drive or a separate partition on your laptop drive. The downside to using the laptop drive is that if the drive fails, the backup is lost... a risk I take as that is how I use it although I do copy important backups to a separate drive as well occasionally.

    Hi Mooly. It your pain in the butt back again. Happy report everything is running smoothly now. Had a little panic yesterday as it took from 0715 to 1350 to load and install all the security settings from Microsoft. It's never took that long before. But it's done now. Still not looked at your System Image Link but defo will do over the weekend. Talking of weekend hope you have a great one. L8trs Mate.
