Question about Rescue Disk
« on: November 09, 2018, 04:24:29 AM »
I use Avast Free on my laptop, everything is OK with it but am planning to make a Rescue Disk on a flash drive to have on hand just in case something goes wrong later on in the future. I also want to make a Rescue Disk for my wife's laptop and my desktop computer. Will the one Rescue Disk created for just my laptop work for all 3 computers or do I need to create individual Rescue Disks that will be unique to each individual computer? If it matters, both laptops are Lenovo but different models, and my desktop is an HP, about 7 years old. Thank You all for any help on this question.

The desk top is old. It is 32 bit. Both laptops are fairly new and are 64 bit. Thanks

Operating system also needs to be considered. :)

All 3 are on Windows 10 and using Firefox and Malwarebytes Premium with exclusions set for Avast.

Create one on the 32 bit and one on the 64 bit system.
