Well they do have a program that will back up your whole hard drive when you 1st start it and you can use it every time you want to. But I've never had anyone use the thing.
You should be able to burn the image to a DVD.
The chkdsk should take over a few minutes. You should go ahead and let that run.
Exactly. What good is having the stuff on a partition if you cant get to it to recover anything.
Hey i bought one of these usb to usb things today in case i wanted to transfer some files to my laptop of vice versa.
