When the System Image Backup is complete, Windows gives you the option to create a system repair disc. You can use this disc to start your PC and restore from your image backup in the event you ever need to replace your hard drive and can’t start Windows. I highly recommend you create the disc, then label and store it on a secure location.
Select the drive you want to use to create the disc and then click the “Create Disc” button.
When it comes time to restore the image, you can start your PC from the recovery disc to get access to a number of recovery tools, including “System Image Recovery.”
