O.T. System Restore?I wouldn't say that particular problem is irreversible.  It 
may mean that you will need to go into administrative tools in control panel, 
computer management, storage, disk management and fiddle around with the Jaws 
cursor to get the second drive going.

  Subject: [ddots-l] O.T. System Restore?

  I'm in the process of giving away old XP computers.  I completely wiped them 
and then reinstalled the original factory software thanks to some restore disks 
that came with the machines way back when.  All this inspires me to learn about 
system restore points and creating a complete backup of my system that could be 
restored in the event of a complete wipe out.  

          First of all, I do know that I've created one irreversible problem 
with one of my machines.  The factory restore disks never knew about the second 
hard drive I had added to the machine by the dealer.  That means that the 
"restored" machine doesn't know that there's a second hard drive in the 
machine. Is there anything I can do to fix that assuming that I can't find the 
installation disks that came with the added drive?  

          Next, I want to create this rebuildable thing in the event that I 
lose my entire system.  What do I have to do to have a fire wire drive capable 
of restoring my completely wiped two drive machine to the condition it was on a 
given day.  This should include both Windows and ALL, that's A L L  the 
projects and files that were on the machine on this mythical day.  

          Last, how would I add individual projects and files to the restore 
drive so that the update brings me to a day forward of that on which the 
original update/restore point was created?  

  Would Ghost be the way to go?
