Can I put a windows folder on a CD?
Reason why is that the recovery system has the first version of XP Home. I now have SP2 and all its updates. So I thought this would be a way to protect my system because of some mishap.
Also, if this is so, could I turn it into a bootable CD? If so, how would I do this?
With much appreciation
