How can I back up my ENTIRE C DRIVE with multiple CD's. I do not have my
original program disks so I need the entire drive.
I have Windows 98 (NOT SE).

More about : backing entire drive

Us e a third party imaging app such as Norton Ghost. I believe BootIt NG will
image the disk as well.

Once you have a functioning system, especially one close to a clean
install, do a full system backup. If you have multiple partitions, I
guess a backup is a bit more complex. It depends upon the ties between
the Registry & the other partitions, as to whether they must be backed
up concurrently. Also, if you've changed the hardware since the backup,
you may need to change it back before a restore.

Backups, and what they didn't tell you.
Backups imply restorability of that backup.

Bear in mind that an image backup have two restore types. One type can be
restored from a windows or dos environment that you boot from your PCs hard
drive. The other may require use of a restoration boot disk, or Windows PE
boot disk, or the original boot CD provide by the backup software
manufacturer. Typically, windows 98 cannot be restored in its own
environment.

File-system oriented backups have similar constraints.

So, you will be in an environment that you're not used to, A..K.A. window
98, when restoring windows 98.

Backing up windows 98 is not big deal, its the restoration that stops many
people.

If you go beyond a few CDs, due to the size of the backup, I suggest using
another hard drive for that purpose instead. Or, a DVD-writer. Check the
size of your used space, divide by 1/2, then divide by 650 MB to roughly
determine the number of CDRs/CDRWs you'll need. A GB is 1024 MB for
reference, for this purpose. 4 CDs is stretching it. Check the backup
program's accessibility to a DVD-writer for restoration purposes (ignore any
backup access). Remember, you won't be in windows 98. Same for a USB or
Firewire connected device like a hard drive or DVD-writer. Since you're not
using SE, you probably don't have such a device and can't use such anyway.
The only other option is a ide hard drive or ide DVD-writer.. There's no
point backing it up, if you can't restore it.

The even more scary part is you should test the restoration after you've
done the backup. This will destroy what you have on your PC at the moment.
If that fails, you have nothing. But, you won't know until you try it.
Waiting until your system fails is not the best way to do this. This is one
of the reasons why people have multiple partitions and/or multiple hard
drives. They put their personal data on another partition and/or hard
drive. A botched windows 98 restore will not destroy their personal data.

DriveImage is no longer available, Powerquest is gone. Symantec bought them
out. Symantec's only existing backup program, Ghost 9.0, will not work in
Windows anything but XP. TrueImage by Acronis would be my first choice for
your purposes. DriveImage 7.0 CD has DriveImage 2002 on it. DI 2002 has
worked well for me for two years running. Use Google to find a vendor for
"DriveImage 7.0", or check your local software store. DI 7.0 works okay in
XP, so you can use that if you move up to a newer PC.

I'd not recommend that. Instead buy a second hard drive, install it as a
slave, and ghost the main drive. This can be done for free (except the HDD)
with this utility:

http://www.pcinspector.de/clone-maxx/uk/welcome.htm

It's MUCH more reliable than backups to CD/DVD... It's easier... It's, well,
just the way to go. HDDs are dirt cheap and you probably have someone nearby
with an old PC that will simply let you have the HDD if you don't already
have one.

The particular lnk you're using is dead in the water.
http://www.powerquest.com/ webpage was revised by Symantec indicating they
now own that company and its software products. There's links on that page
for particular previous software products. Last I heard, Symantec was still
supporting these products. Although some they may not be selling anymore at
their webstore, DI 7.0 being one of them. There is very little apparent
difference between DI 7.0 and Ghost 9.0's graphical user interface.

I botched some info. Ghost 9.0 works in Win2K, not just XP.

Symantec's ftp site has an update for DI 7.0, it brings it up to 7.03
version. Don't know what it fixes. PQ had an update to 7.01 before their
company was bought out. This only applies to XP. I've been using DI 7.0
without problems on XP without applying any version updates.

Your weblink intentions were to provide information regarding the last
working form of DriveImage that works with Windows 98. That was DI 2002,
a.k.a. DI 6.0. And, again, that was available on the installation CD for DI
7.0.

Hmm. Anyway, I must drop DI from my list. It no longer meets my strict

DI 2002 (6.0) still exiists on the DI 7.0 installation CD. Powerquest sold
it that way when introducing DI 7.0 to the public. DI 7.0 is supported by
Symantec, but not sold on their store website. The DI 7.0 installation CD
is still available for public consumption.

I don't know what "strict standard" this doesn't meet.. But I do recommend
to those using both XP and 98, or just 98 alone to get DI 7.0 for use of DI
2002. DI 7.0 and DI 6.0 (2002) are well worth the money for dual XP/98
users.

I've always loved to use DriveImage from day one up to but not including v7
(which for v7 only because I never wanted to install NET is all) I have v6
(2002) but for some reason my all time favorite is v5.01 just because it kept
the original GUI and also leaves out a few gadgets that v6 gives besides the
GUI change that I never got used to, besides that v5.01 and v6 operationally
are identical.

Anyway I only jumped in to say hi here since you mentioned you like DI and I
always did too but just the older versions. These days I also prefer to use
the slightly earlier version of TrueImage v6.0.350 for 99% of my needs now
since it's superior in some ways otherwise, but I still exclusively use DI
v5.01 when it comes to doing Disk to Disk functions just because besides
cutting my teeth on that app and am so used to using it for that, I think
it's very very simple to use for that one function as compared to any
versions of TI.. I like the older version mentioned of TI as compared to
their fancy new GUI'd versions for the same reason as I do of the older
version of DI ..which is the simplicity of the program before they added
extra frills that didn't help the bottom line of what I needed done. Guess
I may be a bit old fashion or fussy liking certain older programs than newer
ones in that way since I seek out simplicity rather than marketing gadgets;
although admittedly the newer version of each do offer more options it's just
that I don't need them. Guess I've always been slow to change when what I
have works so well - then why change it.

Just talking outloud here and didn't mean to break in, but I noticed some of
your posts recently Dave talking/helping others with partition imaging and
was happy to see you are an avid imager too. I am very 'in to' partition
imaging, and use it constantly with what I do.

I see you & Chauvin like DI, the earlier versions. But the URL in my
post doesn't get to it. So I must drop it to avoid serious complaint &
lawsuits, my lawyers have said, not to mention Glee.

That's in this thread.

I'm always funin', BUT...

(a) Glee did object once when I reposted a list of URLs he had
collected, saying I should click them first (for some reason).

(b) The link I had was...
http://powerquest.com/driveimage/ Drive Image
It is removed, because it doesn't exist any longer.

(c) And for the other you mention...
http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/ TrueImage
....which IS an actual site; so I've retained it.
