For this purpose, they are very grateful to CD-RW, and DVD-RAM especially if ga optical devices support, because these types of media to behave in a manner as if the disk previously formatted. The UDF file system type, but that there are several versions of this format, we should choose the version that supports all of the computers being used. Windows XP does not natively support work with the file system, but to use specialized software (such as Roxio software products) that can do that.

A backup system can also be made using specialized software, and can also use Windows BACKUP and RESTORE software support. Backup software support, if not installed directly, should further incorporate a way to come up with an installation CD from the [\Valueadd\msft\ntbackup] start NTBACKUP.MSI file.

Therefore, it is easier to use ||welcome||~|Automatic System Recovery Wizard| the procedure to save .BKF file to a location that is selected and make the necessary disks.

There are free and commercial tools for this purpose, which distinguishes 'Symantec Norton Ghost' program support as a very simple and very reasonably priced. It allows through its boot-CD (or Bart-PE CD made) very quickly save disk partitions in a file or files from the partition reconstruction.

Regardless of how it performs a backup, it needs regular exercise, especially before installing new computer programs or drivers. Data should be regularly copied to CD / DVD or an external hard drive connected via USB.
