This is lnterestinng and somewhat important for me to get straight. The setup file was listed in the ISO's contents and only had to be clicked for the
lnstallation to begin------I can see lt would be no good as a backup lf the computer was not booting ----except I have a bootable USB created with AOEMI BACKUPPPER for this purpose and used successfully. After booting wiith that I could then use the ISO, yes ?
By a 'proper backup' I mean a copy of the OS, programs/apps, folders and files ---- created by AOEMI, MACRIUM or similar. AOEMI now has a fatal issue for me [and others] --- for some unknown reason neither BACKUPPER nor PARTITIION MANAGER can recognise my C drive, so l had MACRIUM on my machine, but removed it and much else to make room for thr re-install. There is a new version just released anyway.
