    Hi olley

    You could look around for an old copy of Ghost, that way you can make a copy of your drive inc the boot files, to DVD. I did mine ages ago but seem to have lost the disk :Blush:

    Yes, Dave is right that you need disk imaging software. A back up program will not give you a working copy of a Windows install.

    Have a look at Clonezilla (free).
