hello everybody, I read Grover two PDF files and have few more questions and hope you will help me in educating here. Please explain in plain english as I am not tech savvy. 1. How to boot from CD. I made one on CD-ROM ( don't laugh). when I put the CD in computer, it shows files. or PC should be restarted. 2. should we make system imaging only via recovery CD mode or windows mode. or doesn't matter. 3. how to check the recovery CD and Backup image file to make sure they are good and will work when disaster strikes. 4. ARCHIVE LOCATION: biggest confusion for me. a). when making image for the first time, E- my external hard drive ( EHD), Arconis Full my folder name, 11-5-2007 my date of backup. The folder/file name looks like this E/ArconisFull/11-5-2007. Grover mentioned there should be no spaces or too many dots. b). when doing weekly scheduling- full backups only. when I select the same folder, it says overwrite or create new folder. Does it mean, each time I do a full backup, I have to create a new folder and can not save within the same folder? does the automatic backup also creates new folder. Please explain this, using the above E/ArconisFull format. 5. In options: media components: should we select both full version and one click restore or only one. which one and why. In the same, advanced tab: full or safe version. both or one, which one and why. 6. Grover in his beautiful PDF file says, connect the EHD ( destination) to pc and power it up before we run the program. Does it mean, it should be connected even before we insert the boot CD or after it but before proceeding with wizard. 7. If I decide to move from old 40GB internal hard drive to 100 GB new internal hard drive both with one partition only, is it ok. or we should always create partitions in new disk. Creating partitions and adjusting their size is scaring me. Never did it. thanks for patiently going through this and help this new boy here. thank you.
