SORRY: subject line should read, "Can you backup and restore WITHOUT using bootable disc?" I cannot get the bootable CD to work on my computer. I believe it has to do with my motherboard. I will try to address that problem in the future. For now, I really would like to make a backup of my OS and installed programs. My question: Will ATI work just fine running within XP by doing a backup? Also, will a restore work fine within XP? I would even prefer to make a clone of my system drive (C drive). Can this be performed without ever booting from a disc?
