    Hi Guys,
    can I make a backup of my Dell Windows 7 64- bit OS.
    The disk is over 5G so could I use imgburn and a dual layer disk?

    cheers

    Why do you ask us if you can make a backup of your windows?
    Yyea you can do that.. remember it wont be bootable if yo use windows own backupsoftware, you have to create a bootcd for that.

    If you installed it your own I suggest you use searchengines script and anarethos recoverytool to create recoverypartition and medium
