    I am trying to create a backup floppy, I format the disk, go thru the steps in system tools-backup. and I get message backup created, when I hit finish, I get a progress screen, after a few seconds I get the following message:
    "The files for the recovery diskette could not be created. The operation was aborted". Please tell me why its doing this.
    Thanx, George

    What exactly are you trying to back up. Not much will fit on a floppy.

    Operation: Backup
    Active backup destination: File
    Media name: "Backup.bkf created 02/04/2005 at 20:47"

    Backup Status :confused: :confused: :confused:
    The files for the recovery diskette could not be created. The operation was aborted.

    I've merged both of your threads, please post back to the same thread instead of creating another one for the same problem.

    You didn't answer the question above, what exactly are you trying to do????
