What's the easiest way to create some sort of disc that restores hardware settings but lets you keep all of the files on your computer? If that doesn't exist, something close to it? :whistling:

Hi. Windows xp system restore. It does not make a disk, but creates a restore point to fall back to should your system get messed up. Read all about it in windows help.

I was thinking more along the lines if my computer became unbootable due to hardware misconfigs / screwups :whistling:

a second drive with a weekly/daily image creation is easiest

A program like acronis true image is a wonderful tool for $30
