Questions about using Rescue and Recovery backup / Alternatives
I have used R&R, created DVD backup set, restored to a new HD. All worked great. Now a few months later I'd like to create another DVD BU set. Apparently we can only create ONE R&R dvd? It tells me I can continue to create the BU dvd set or ca
Question: Is the old R&R dvd compatable with new version of R&R (4.2x)? Can I continue to use it with new dvd BU sets?
Second: has anyone found a good backup utility like Casper which allows complete HD BU to an external drive? This is something I always did before the Lenovo, kept a spare HD to simply plug in in case the operating one failed, great BU. Casper will NOT work with Vista and the X61. Worked with them for several weeks, no progress. Created some hard to remove problems as well.
I do weekly BU to an external TBHD using the Thinkvantage utility but my confidence is not complete.
