I have had major computer problems over the last couple of weeks which has resulted in it crashing and loosing all my programs. I have downloaded Acronis True Image and followed the instructions to make a back up of my system which i can reboot with if the computer crashes again. I hoping that i will never have to use it but if i do Im not 100% sure it will work. The backup program has all gone on one CD but i have about 6GB in the memory is that right? I will be honest Im as thick as a plank of wood when it comes to computer issues and before i start asking for advice on how to get this thing fixed i want to be sure i have a reliable backup.
I have a C drive and a D drive and only the C drive is used would i be able to copy all my software, programs and make an identical copy on my D drive in case it crashes again. That way at least i could get the think working again even if i had to start it in safe mode.
Im really looking for suggestions on my best course of action and if possible some instructions on how to do it.
