    I am using Drive Snapshot (I’ve read many complaints about all the other imaging programs out there).
    I have no floppy drive.
    My computer is Vista 64.
    I am not familiar with DOS or command line operations.

    Can I restore the C drive as I did the D drive? Or do I need to use a recovery CD/DVD and DOS?

    Can I restore the C drive from a USB floppy drive?

    Here’s what Drive Snapshot tells me to do:

    If you have no disk drive - Method A:
    Method 1: create a small partition, then restore networkbootdiskette.sna (installed during setup) to this partition.
    You can customize this partition at will (change autoexec.bat etc.).
    Use this partition as bootable medium below.

    If you have no disk drive - Method B:
    Create a bootable (uncompressed) image of a floppy.
    Using the windows commandline, expand networkbootdiskette.sna with the (undocumented) command

    c:\programs\snapshot> snapshot networkbootdiskette.sna bootdisk.img -X

    Use bootdisk.img as bootable medium below.

    I don’t know how to do Method A.

    I tried Method B but the command line always starts with “C:\users\user>”. How to I get rid of “users\user>” so I just have “C:\”?
