DOES LIVE ONECARE BACKUP MY VISTA OS ALONG WITH MY DATA? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I BACKUP everything on my computer with the use of Windows LivE OneCare?
    I have done a 'backup' with the trial version..yesterday I drank the kool aid and bought the whole 1 year subscription..my question is, now that i have LIVE ONECARE installed on my system, and I have 3 dvd's worth of backup is that all I need if/when
     my system goes belly up?

    All I need to do in the event of a meltdown is simply insert the dvd's in order one at a time?

    Perhaps this question has already been asked and is somewhere on this site but right now I just needed to ask that question and hope for a response..that is all the time i have right now..
    can any one kindly help answer this
    honestly..it will be deeply appreciated...

  • Hello Stu, One Care does not back up the operating system or programs, it only backs up your critical data. See this Microsoft Knowledge Base article for detail on file types that are backed up and file types that are excluded from One Care backup - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943776/en-us
