    Does anyone know how to save a full system backup onto a CD-R

    Having just recovered from a fatal crash, I have installed a CD writer and wish to use it to put a full system backup on CD but when using "Backup" it wants a tape drive.

    Can anyone tell me how to back up onto CD?

    Operating system is Windows 95B

    It's possible the software that came with your CD-R provides the backup capability. Otherwise, I would suggest something like Norton Ghost to place an image of your entire drive onto cd(s).

    Thanks, Angel,

    I have taken your advice and got the upgraded software to enable HD backup onto CDrom. It worked.

    Typical, isn't it that the software that comes bundled with the CD writer is the basic edition and doesn't do any of the fancy stuff!!
