i just bought a copy of Vista Ultimate (pretty penny, not sure its worth it). however, i would like to protect my investment and make a back up. when i ran clone dvd it would not recognize it. Is there a way to back up my OS? i have currently moved backed to XP,(I was not connected to the internet so i still have my registration still good as vista only allows you to move you copy once you activated it, plus i used a new HDD so i did not mess up my XP hdd) but quad core is on my mind in late July after prices drop first and i would like to use Vista then. If slysoft can't do it, what program can. i paid to much for an accident to happen, yes its still in the protected plastic casing. Thanks for any help.
