in the wizard to make a rescue disk in avg free edition, it asks me the name of the system area backup file, it has a default backup file, but im not sure if it is right... how do i know for sure, and can i make my own....


also, i realized that i do not have a floppy drive in my compuer, i have all the hardware connected, i have my regular hard drive, an external hard drive, cd-rom, cd-burner (cd rom and burner are in different bays), and memory card readers that came with the external hard drive, so i have 2 hard drives, and 4 drives with removable storage. do i have too many drives with removable storage??? my bios doesnt even detect this, what can i do to make it work?? I custom built my computer, and i used some older parts from various computers, everything works fine, except the floppy drive. i need a floppy drive, so thats a necessity....


any information on how i could fix this would be helpful...
thanks

Steve,

First, if you have windows xp and a harddisk formatted as ntfs, the rescue disk is useless. It creates a dos based av that cannot access ntfs

Second, I do not understand your second question

No, they use different controllers, so there is no limit

Is the floppy drive enabled in BIOS

does it show in device manager

start > run
devmgmt.msc
<enter>
