    Rescue Disk

    I've been searching on this forum for a thread about making a rescue disk but I guess I'm not looking in the right place because I can't find one. I'm running Windows 7 64bit and I'm wondering if the create a system repair disc is the same as a repair disk. If so then I know where to go but if the repair disk is different would someone please point me to where I can find the repair disk instructions. I think Fred did a column on this but darn if I can find it. Thanks.

    There are many types of rescue/repair disks that can be created depending upon their intended usage.

    Here is the basic system repair disk:

    Thank you RetiredGeek and CLiNT. After posting I thought I should find my installation disk that came with my computer just to be sure I had one. Found it, but I think I'll make a rescue disk and store it just in case. Thanks again
