How to create a backup disk of your product

Windows XP

This is one of many ways to create a backup CD. Let me know if you have any questions on this procedure.

  1. Put the product folder that you want to backup onto your desktop (the product can be zipped or unzipped, it’s your choice)*
  2. Insert a blank cd into your computer
  3. A window will come up. Select “Open writable CD folder using Windows Explorer”.
  4. Click “OK”
  5. Drag the folder or folders that you put on your desk top in step 1 into the empty window.
  6. On the left of the window you just dragged the folder in, click on “write these files to CD”.
  7. “The CD Writing Wizard” box will open up. Give your CD a name or leave the default, then click, “Next”.
  8. The Wizard will create the CD and eject it when it is complete.
  9. Click “Finish” or any other option you choose on the next screen.
  10. That’s it! (don’t forget to label your CD with a marker or CD label)

* You don’t have to put it on your desktop, however, in step 5 you will need to navigate to your folder and drop the folder/file from that location to the wizard’s empty window.
