It doesn't support CDRW or DVDRW.
Can this be done? My OEM (Dell) has adopted the disgusting practice of backing up OS media to a hidden/restore partition on the hard drive; which can only be accessed via (yep, you guessed it) the Restore Disk (shudder).
Nice idea for the brain-dead, but not very practical otherwise. Why? No repair by System CD option, no extracting handy little utilities from OS Disk, no re-formatting harddrive with just what ya want.
Worst of all, I want to implement a regular, differential backup routine but am unable to do so with native OS software due to my OEM's shortsighted engineering.
Would rather not have to purchase/install a third party utility when I know for a fact that MS Backup will do just what I need.
Any help/suggestions out there?
