I'm using the "Paragon Drive Backup, version 8.0, build 258 (29.06.06 ) Professional". My OS is Windows XP Home Edition SP 2, running on laptop Toshiba L100 with 60 GB HD. I divided the 60 GB HD into two partition: drive C 30 GB (NTFS) and drive D 30 GB (FAT32). The drive C is where Windows installed and drive D just for data. The My Documents folder I set to drive D.

Is there any easy tutorial/step by step about how to use this Paragon? I just wanna backup my drive C (where Windows installed) and capable to restore it using bootable CD/DVD in case I can't boot my Windows anymore.

Like in the 'Backup hard disk or selected partitions' wizard, do I must select 'First Hard Disk Track/Master Boot Record'? I mean, what should I select/do/choose so it'll meet my case.

I've to ask this because I've been recovering my Windows three times while trying several imaging/backing up software :(

Thank you.

I bought it and it's running now.

I choose "1st HD track + MBR + drive C" from the 'Backup hard disk or selected partitions' wizard. The aprox. size is 9GB and I choose to save it to drive D as I only have 2 DVD-RW atm. I'll burning it later and hopes that I can create bootable CD/DVD from this Paragon Software and restore the backup from DVDs.

Please let me know if something goes wrong with my step. I really appreciate it.

Thank you so much.
