I want to design a program that will create a exact image of a given partition or hard drive what language would be best to accomplish this?
I also want to design a application that runs in DOS mode that reads this image and restores the data to a blank partition. What language should I use for this???
My goal is to create a System recovery Program that will backup an entire partition or hard drive to a DVD or CD that is bootable and can completely restore the system after it crashes or if someone just wants to do a new install.
So basically a program the creates the same type of system recovery disks that ship with dell or compaq computers
