By the very nature of it's work (disaster recovery, Go Back (Rescue Disk, and others) anticipate that, for all intents and purposes, Windows is inoperable. A Start-up, i.e. bootable floppy, gets the rescue started. Your OS may determine how it then proceeds since from Windows ME on, a command prompt no longer exists in its true form.

Chris:

When I turn the computer on (running windows 98SE) I get a GoBack menu which allows me to click on the space bar to open it up. From there I can go back to a previous time, before the OS crash and select the day or time (of those shown) that I want to revert to, hit the enter key and it loads up.

Very easy. Worked great for me a number of times when the software or patch I was loading crashed the OS. I just shut down, select a previous time when it was working normally, and start up again. Usually takes about 5 to 8 minutes, since it also scans the harddrive when starting. I then open GoBack from windows, and select any files that I had loaded between the time I selected to revert to and the time of the crash, that I wanted to also reload and load them back.

This works well for me after my last crash I lost the image file that I had worked on for about a day. After reverting to a previous day and restarting, I was also able to reinstall the image file.

Hope this helps you better understand it.

George

Crystal clear and I note the program gets its foot in the door as things start to load. I attempted an upgrade to 98se from 98 a couple of weeks ago and alas I had to take to the lifeboat with all the re-installing to do. Even if you don't lose data its a long job getting everything going again. (Scottish power plant nearly mutinied Tom) Thanks again George.

This has been an interesting thread. Once again, Tom gets a gold star for starting it! It sounds like a must have.

Exclamation Save $$$$$$$

But you gotta hurry.
Roxio is offering free shipping til December 31! Heck you've got more than 48 hours left!
Roxio GoBack3 is also available electronically for $40 --$10 less than if you have it physically shipped (but available only in the US)
(and I don't work for Roxio, know anyone who works for Roxio, etc etc. Crashes are such a nuisance...and waste of time
