    Yep, Thats better - however a small issue. When you "launch the recovery tools automatically" and run restore it provides you with a windows confirming its done and do you want to re-start the system - which is does, but you boot back into the recover. ??

    Documentation is much better - just need to correct a few spelling mistakes (Recovvery) and maybe include as a PDF not Word Document?
    Excellent work!

    That is werid, because when using the "Launch recovery tools" from Windows, it modify the bootloader which get restored when booting the recovery tools.

    If you just launch the tools from Windows and, once booted, you quit it without restoring anything, does it go back to Windows, or does it go back to the recovery tools again and again?

    Anyway, next version will rewrite the boot manager (not the mbr) after a full restore/repair and will have a fixed documentation :D

    Simply because I am not a programmer, but a scripter and I already know AutoIt, while the only programming language I know is JAVA, in a console environment (thanks to the University). Also, AutoIt can easily compiled to 32 and 64 bits and do not require any special DLL to run.

    Documentation - Great - Nice to see the PDF
    Installations - 100% Perfect
    Creation of DVD Media - 100% Perfect
    Partition Recovery = Boots OK, re-boots back into windows - after taking NO action and then Running full restore = OK = 100% perfect
    DVD Media = Boots OK, Full Restore = OK - 100% Perfect

    Thats it you have made the perfect FREE Recovery Option - that provides an easy to use and stable platform.

    For the future - I would like to see the "User Account Control" popup you get when selecting Create Recovery Media or Boot into Recovery disappear, not sure if you are able to get rid of thisl.

    T H A N K Y O U !

    Thanks for your comments and your time for testing everything!

    Hope this will be of some use to some people.

    I thought Recovery was supposed to be a whole partition not a folder.
