Journal: ISO for your hard drive problem

Journal by snadrus
I saw your issue about making a copy of an old hard drive for safe keeping. I'm in a similar situation, so I built a home-grown ISO where I downloaded FreeDOS and dropped in PQMAGIC's multiple floppy-based files into a folder. That CD boots quickly and I use it along with a large drive that I carry around to backup partitions of important PCs (old machines no one knows how to fix). The floppies work too, but they're slower. The ISO's like 30mb.

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.

Working...
