Backing up with image files

I was wondering if creating an image file with some protection placed on the CD such as Safe Disk while making a back up CD. Do make the image directly from the original CD or do you place the contents of the CD onto the HardDrive and then make the image from the HDD? :confused:

You can do it either way - whatever seems suitable for you.
