Thread: How To Back Up Software And Run Games

  1. #1
    software back up:
    1) I don't know how to back my software up on a cdr. I have a cd/dvd -r/-rw.
    I put a bunch of files in a folder (videos, mp3, software installers, documents, etc.). Then I dragged the folder to the cd drive with the blank cd in it. Windows proceeded to transfer the files into the cd. When I formatted the computer and reinstalled windows, I put the cd with all my files in it into the cd drive. But the files would not copy back to my hard drive.
    Is there a specific software I require to put files on to a cd, then put them back into a computer. I'm sorry if I'm stupid because I have no idea how to do this.

    2) If I download a game such as simcity4, what are the steps i need to take to put the game on a cd and install it in order to play? When i download a game file, I really don't know how to use it.

    personally i would share all your games, movies and music on kazaa.

    you could then have multiple offsite backups.

    or go to www.nero.com and read the guides there on how to do just about anything

    edit : damn hands
