    The backup software takes an exact copy of the file system (Windows) and stores it to another disk / partition. If / when you need to re-build your Windows installation you boot from the recovery disk and the backup software replaces Windows and all the files and settings as they were at the time of the backup.

    Note: All backups should always be done to a second hard disk / tape / CD. This protects you from failure of the disk Windows runs on.

    Have a look in the Backup forum for software suggestions.

    cheers, Paul

    Paul explains it well in his post. It will image EVERYTHING, system files, data, apps, etc. and make an exact bit by bit ( byte by byte ) copy to be used if you have to restore it.
    I happen to use Acronis True Image http://www.acronis.com/promo/ATIH201...FRtN5QodAnaPJw
    Another popular one is Shadow Protect. http://www.storagecraft.com/blog/sha...design-basics/
    Go to their websites to get a more detailed overview.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
