All of these disc imaging apps allow you to create a boot disc. In the event you cannot get back into the OS you boot to the disc you created and you will be able to restore from there. In fact, if and when you need to restore the system partition, it ALWAYS needs to be done at boot (as opposed to within the OS). You can start the process within the OS, but in order to complete the actual restoration the system will need to reboot and enter a preboot version of the app (usually in a version of Linux, I believe).
I am about to do this very thing but I have a question. What if??
What if the computer will not boot at all? The app I am going to use requires using the same program to
restore the backup. If you can't get to it are you up the proverbial "s**t creek without a paddle"?

If you want help, perhaps you should start a new thread.
I don't understnd all I know about this cloning of a HD. I did a clone with Easus and then I went to
tools and selected make a boot disk. THe procedure finished and said nothing. So I created something.
Now I see this about burning,ISO and such. Don't even know what an ISO is or does. Could Google I suppose but
haven't yet. Why would the program let me create something that is useless?
