Is it possible to backup all data PLUS the programs I have installed eg defraggler, vlc player, guitar pro 5 etc
I have been looking at creating a bootdisk but am not sure if that what they are meant for.
Bootdisks wont be necessary.
They're primarily used to boot to windows if the windows installed on your HDD crashes.
Do you have Windows 7?
If so there should be a backup and restore option that comes with Windows 7
