I reinstall windows a lot of times. I'm afraid that the Windows 7 installation might get scratches. So, I want to take a backup copy of the disc.

I want to know if it is copy protected or something or if I can directly copy it using an image burning software.

Thanks.

Will it be bootable and work like the original? And by the way how big is the disc. Will a 4.7 GB DVD be sufficient?

:crazy:
