SpeedyPC: Is the emergency boot CD needed to restore a backup?

If you make the CD once on a Windows 7 system, can it be used later on an XP system?

Thanks in advance!

When you install Paragon Backup & Recovery 2011 Free on your PC always create a bootable CD, and yes you still need a bootable CD to restore a backup it a must, the great thing I like about Paragon Backup & Recovery 2011 Free you can check your bootable CD and your backup image files for errors just to make sure everything okay in case you might need to restore them back onto your PC.

They have a check recovery disk wizard to verify recovery media for integrity and ability to boot from, and they have a check archive integrity wizard to verify backup archives for consistency. When I create a backup image I always check my image files through check archive integrity wizard to verify backup archives for consistency for errors for safe keeping it a must, so far I haven't had any errors or major backup and restore problem at all so far Paragon Backup & Recovery 2011 Free has deliver the most reliable backup software without any bug problems.  You must understand if your system is not set-up correctly your backup software can fail, everybody computers has a different set-up no matter what OS you have some can pass the backup image and some can fail.

That is why Paragon Backup & Recovery 2011 Free has a check recovery disk wizard to verify recovery media for integrity and ability to boot from, and they have a check archive integrity wizard to verify backup archives for consistency which is great.

For more information Paragon Backup & Recovery 2011 Free about see PDF manual http://www.paragon-software.com/docs/manual_BR2011FreeAd.pdf

EASEUS tools are pretty good and they offer quite some free versions. If i need HDD manipulation i always go with EASEUS tools. I mean, they are free and they just work great. What else more can you ask for :D

Other options are Paragon and Acronis, but you have to look for promos and deals on the net...

Avastfan1 when you install a backup software on W7 and you create a bootable CD from W7 the bootable CD belong to that current OS, for another words if you install a backup software on XP you cannot used the same bootable CD from the one you already created from W7. Why each bootable CD has a different driver set-up for each OS version so you have to create another bootable CD for XP, and if you have 3 computers running the same OS like W7 and yes you can used the same bootable CD for W7 only not for XP.

Thanks Speedy for the reply.

I was not referring to creating a bootable CD with Windows, rather I meant using the bootable CD creation function in Todo Backup Software.

Hi, it shouldn't make any difference whatsoever. :)

Yesterday i retried EaseUS Todo Backup Free, thought i'd share my findings here.

Running Windows 7 x64 here and HDD's are in AHCI mode. My system partition contains 15GB of data. Creating a backup image took 5 min and it created an image that was 8GB in size. There were no errors or anything like that. Then i created a USB restore disk and went about restoring the backup image which took a little less than 30 mins to complete, again everything went smooth, no errors. Since this program is free and supports scheduling and incremental backups i am willing to forgive it's slowness when restoring.

Still not sure how it does with restoring multiple partitions at the same time, in particular the hidden 100MB Win 7 partition which was my previous gripe with the program. I posted on their forum about that: http://forum.easeus.com/viewtopic.php?t=19781

This reminds me of going to the Doctor with a problem but rather than getting your problem solved, you're sent away with medication
that has nothing to do with your original problem.....  ;D
I'll just stick with what's already provided in Windows 7.  :)

Yeah you're right Bob. Utterly incompetent support staff over there. In their last reply to me they even had the balls to tell me:

<snip>Anyhow, we are glad to hear that your problem has resolved.<snip>

Resolved ??! Yeah OK, whatever...  ::)

Like i said the program works just fine over here, i love that it has an incremental backup option and scheduling. If you read my latest reply over there you'll notice i mentioned that i got rid of the system reserved partition so that is not an issue for me any more. Also i see the new version(3.0) is going to add some interesting new features to the program and i am eager to try them out. I am particularly interested in the image conversion tool(convert images to VirtualPC and VMware formats) and the ability to create tasks directly from windows explorer. Sounds nice.  :)
