Using windows media player can I copy my complete C drive to a dvd. Is it legal? Could it help with a computer failure? :thumbsup:

No. The OS can not copy parts of it self while the OS is in use.

Third party software is required to do what you want done. It is known as creating an image.

I do not know how can you use Windows Media Player to backup your system. Thats first time I ever heard of it.

You can use something like CloneZilla ( http://www.clonezilla.org/ ) or Macrium Reflect( http://www.macrium.com/ReflectFree.asp ) for backing up your hard disk as an image.

Thanks for getting back. Well some times I start thinking too much. Just a idea. Some thing like right clicking on C drive and copy drops down. Click on it and burn to dvd using windows media player. I now know it's not going to happen. Thanks for your input.
