Make an ASR floppy/cd without the data

By joegrosskopf ·
I like the ASR utitlity in Windows XP and 2003 but it wants tobackup all of the data on the OS partitition. I do not need that since I run nightly backups. I would like to make a floppy/cd that will get my server or system up and runnign again and then restore from tape. How can I make an ASR disk without all of the data?

I would also know how to create an ASR floppy without backing up all the data of the system partition. This would be nice for me because I regurarly do normal and differential backups of my system partition, and doing complete asr backups instead of the normal backups would not be ok for me, as ASR doesn't reset the archive bit (or am I wrong?!)... but it would be nice to have the ASR floppy available for quick restoring in case of system fail. Thx! Andrea
