    Folks, obviously I bought this product because I want to be able to completely restore the disk on my laptop if it should fail (rather than reload the OS then have to re-install every stinking program, then restore all files from a file based backup system).

    So, call me confused. When I start DB 10 Pro backup, it asks me if I want to create a recovery CD... indeed, tells me I should. I can then run the wizard.

    But when I bought DB10 Pro I also got a program called 'Paragon-134-PRE_WinPERCD_10.0.10.10505_000.exe'. If I execute this it also wants to burn a CD/DVD.

    So... which to use... and in general, if I am backing up a Thinkpad T42 with a 100 gig disk, do I want WinPE or Linux or both CD's?

    The WinPe cd is better - much more hardware support.

    However, if the Linux/dos cd works well on your system and recognizes and restores everything ( as it does for almost everyone ), you could use that.

    Only the WinPE cd allows you to load drivers when using the Virtualization Manager.

    Hope it helps.
