Rdisk too big

By blarman ·
Does anyone know a way to create a repair disk for a Windows NT server where the repair information (registry) is too big to put on a single floppy? The normal rdisk craps out and dies, and I am left with a useless floppy and no way to restore my system if it dies the death.

Help would be much appreciated!

If your ERD is full because the registry is too big :
1. Run RDisk.exe to update your repair information in Winnt\Repair.
2. Open the folder Winnt\Repair.
3. Copy Setup.log, Config.nt and AutoExec.nt on your DRU.
4. For a full backup, the following files are necessary too :
Default._
Sam._
Software._
Ntuser.da_
Security._
System._
Setup.log
5. On your DRU copy what fits on the diskette from the files listed above.
6. Repeat the procedure with as many diskettes as necessary : on each diskette, copy Setup.log, Config.nt and AutoExec.nt as well as what fits from the files listed above until you have a complete set of diskettes.
7. Make as many repairs as DRUs you have copied by booting with Windows NT's installation diskette.

Setup.log needs to be on each disk (DRU). Therefore, delete setup.log from line 4 above...
