Hello Lavender. Sorry the link was unable to help. What I would suggest doing now is for you to google "pc restore by symantec" obviously you will know specifically what you are looking for I'm sure you will appreciate it is hard to fully grasp what is needed long distance.

Hello,
Thank you both for your help. With regards to the Goodell's website, I've already visited it before, and it does not have how to copy it. I guess I'm looking for information on actually doing the copying, the how-tos. I have done search over the internet, and not much out there. Anyway, thanks for stopping by to reply to my post.

Scroll down to "Saving a Copy of the Ghost Image (DSR-DOS)" and follow the directions. If it's the partition you want to copy that can be done once the restore partition is exposed.
Also a little further up the page will have a link to where you can get a copy of ptedit which you will need.

Hello Rick_in_Fla,
Thank you for the link. I'm going through it now, but I think this is something beyond my current capabilities as a computer user. I guess there is no easier way in copying the DSR. I was hoping that it would be as simple as simply finding the file for DSR and then copying it. Thanks again.
