I tried AOMEI Backupper for the first time and wanted to make a recovery cd . Backupper told me that I first needed to download AIK for Windows7 ( similar to Win PE ? ) , burn it to a DVD then install it. Did that , thinking that it would be a small widget but discovered that it is 1.8 GB !!! Anyone else been down this road ? Seems like a LOT of work / hassle , just to create a rescue cd. First thing I did when I bought the laptop was to create a rescue disc using the utility that came bundled. Would that not do the same job when used with the disc clones from Backupper ?
