    Interesting article. Backups are more important today then they have ever been in my opinion, if you loose your data and you cant recover it then your business is dead. Thanks again.

  • file storage

    These all look like great services! I just wonder what the limitations are. Free things are always great, but they don't offer everything. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    You start by booting the Linux Recovery CD first, when that is done you use the Support CD second. If you don't have a CD drive you need to get one that is external and uses the USB ports.
