    I read somewhere that it was possible to create a true windows restore disk that will restore your damaged system to its former healthy self.

    As I recall it involved a folder containing the Windows installation files.

    The folder may have been named i386.

    Does anyone know anything about this.


    Thanks

    The i386 folder holds the files used to install, repair, modify, update and rebuild Windows. Though these files are also located on your Windows installation CD, if you have one.

    You can find the steps to create a bootable recovery CD from the i386 folder here.

    The easiest way to recover your system is to create regular backups using a tool like Shadow Protect or Acronis TrueImage. If you want to discuss tools like these then visit our Computer Security and Backup forum.
