In 1995 a new OS appeared. It incorporated major changes that thwarted people from backup of "program" due to features that we know as:
- The registry.
- Shared DLLs.
In NT, 2000, XP and beyond, the company added...
As such, it's been about 9 years and no backup has shown itself capable to backup a Windows "program".
What to do?
Organise yourself and keep your programs ready to be reinstalled.
I have a Dell 4400 running Win XP and would like to back up my programs before a crash. Win 98 had a back up proceedure but when I looked for it in XP help, it said nothing was available for my version of Windows.
Is a back up proceedure missing in all versions, or just mine. Thanks!
