Building Recovery Media

  • Creation of bootable recovery media Recovery Media is a CD or DVD (or even a floppy disk) from which the user can boot and recover the system. is performed with the Recovery Media Wizard.


    To launch the File Transfer Wizard, click the Backup and Rescue button of the Express Launcher and select Burn Rescue Kit. After the mentioned action the Welcome page of the wizard will be displayed.


    The Recovery Media Wizard allows the user to configure the settings and start the operation in accordance with the entered parameters. In our case we set the parameters of the future recovery tool by defining:

    1. Type of the recovery media the user is creating. The recovery tools can be placed either on a CD/DVD disc or on a floppy disk.

    2. Contents of the recovery set. The recovery tools can include the standard Recovery Media image (included in the installation package) or software defined by the user. In the last case the user can record a prepared image by setting the path to the image file on the disk.

    3. A recording device. The appropriate external media (CD/DVD or a floppy disk) needs to be inserted into the selected device.
    4. CD/DVD writing parameters (in case the user selects this kind of media). Writing parameters include writing speed (maximum or minimum) and the ability of ejecting the recorded disc after completing the operation.

    The program supports CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW and also DVD-R, DVD+R double layer discs. If the inserted disc is not empty, the Wizard suggests the user erasing its contents. When the user confirms the operation, the program deletes the re-writable disc's contents and begins the recording process.

    As a result, the user receives recovery media, which can be used in most emergencies.

    The operation will be performed immediately after confirmation. No virtual mode is available.
