Window XP Back up

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Would anyone please show me how to back up my OS with the basic softwares such as video driver and burning program include. I'd prefer it to be on a bootable DVD cd so in worst case scenario I don't have to install the OS then spending time looking for drivers again. I've always reinstall window xp every 6 months for the past few years the slow way but now I need to learn something new Any awesome, easy and painless method of doing this would be greatly appreciated.

Norton Ghost is your friend if you can get your hands on a copy. You can restore your computer to its orginal install if you created it at the time of the install in about 10 mins. or less.

Other than that. If you want to use backup software NTbackup is not the best but it does the job.
