How to make backup of inDesign install disc?

by Steve 1 2 3 / July 28, 2011 1:27 AM PDT

<span style="font-family: Arial; ">I bought inDesign this morning and installed it on my two day old iMac running OS10.6.6 (Snow Leopard). I inserted it in the drive slot, selected it on the Desktop and chose Finder- Burn [title of the install disc]. The finder asked whether I really wanted to copy a blank disc! I feel nervous about not having a backup for such an expensive item (over 700 GBP!)
So, how can I make a workable backup of the install disc?

(I then tried to eject the inDesign disc (by dragging its icon to the Trash) but nothing happened. I then switched the iMac off at the wall plug and on again. The drive tray came out and I got the disc.)

Launch Disk Utility
You will see the inDesign disk in the left hand panel of Disk Utility, single click it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
