    Can anyone recommend sw that will let me create personal hdd recovery disks


    by toby1naz ·

    I found lots and lots of posts and discussions about many of the various apps out there that will create images of entire drives and partitions. But every one I read focused on restoring a drive from an image that was stored on another drive, or on a server somewhere.

    What I want to do is create a personal set of hdd recovery / system restore disks (CD or DVD), like the ones you’d get from an oem system manufacturer. You know… boot up from disk 1 and the app prompts for each sequential disk until the original hdd / partition has been recreated from the image stored on the disks.

    Somebody, somewhere must have written a tool for this, because Dell, Acer, HP, SONY, and who knows who else have been doing this for years!

      Try reposting this in the ‘Q&A’ forum. The ‘Discussion’ forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The ‘Water Cooler’ is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to ‘Q&A’ here:;content

      There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you’ll find more of those members in ‘Q&A’ than in ‘Discussions’ or ‘Water Cooler’.

      Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a ‘+’ does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won’t need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as “The Answer”. .
