I've already made many attempts to do this. I put the recovery disk in the drive, exited out of the install when it came up. Using Windows Explorer to see the contents on the disk, I highlighted everything, right-clicked and "copied", then created a folder on my hard drive and in that folder I "pasted" everything from the CD into it.
Then I took the recovery disk out, put a blank DVD in (the total size of everything from the disk is 1.4Gb's so a CD is too small) and tried to copy & paste from the hard drive to the DVD but I kept getting the same error window popping up telling me "Problem Copying" asking me to Retry, Skip, or Cancel. I tried over and over clicking the Retry button but it wouldn't copy anything over. Here's a screenshot of that error window: http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/5294/pr...opyingerror.jpg
And also, I clicked the Properties of the blank DVD and it showed 0 bytes used and 0 bytes free. Shouldn't it be showing 4.7Gb's free? Like if you click the Properties of a blank CD, it shows 0 bytes used and 702Mb's free. Here's a screenshot of that: http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/4125/dv...owing0bytes.jpg
Could somebody please make sense of this and instruct me on how to accomplish this task? Thank you.
