View Full Version : Cd Bootable Hard Drive Back Up App To Ext Hdd Plz

28th August 2005, 05:29 PM
I want to back a laptop's (the PC one: http://forums.appletalk.com.au/index.php?showtopic=11142) 5GB hard drive to an external hard drive or a single DVD in a DVD burner (Pioneer DVR-108 via USB) The laptop only has a CDROM drive and ext floppy drive and I can't get the network card working (stupid winblows Xtra Pathetic), so I have limited options. I want to install Fedora Core 3 on it, I want to image it just for a backup.

I would prefer an app that boots off a CD, unless there is an app that runs under windblows that will image the entire drive while windblows is running, but I don't see how.

In short: make a complete image of a 5GB HDD to a DVD-R/W or bigger HDD (as an image file)

mods: please close this thread, I don't have this laptop anymore!

try the Ultimate Boot CD (http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/), which contains drive imaging software (among many, many other things).
