Ok, this is a problem i've had acouple of times over the years with laptops (But made worse by current trend of not giving CD's with computer, and instead have harddrive partitions with just a rollback to factory image).
So I got my new netbook, and I discover Windows Starter doesn't have the ability to change the background (well screw that). I'ld already been considering installing Windows 7 Pro, since this is one of the few netbooks that can easily suport Aero. I have a copy of Windows 7 pro I got though MSDN Accademic Alliance, (Completely legit) Now MSDN-AA Product keys don't support Upgrade Anytime. So it's a fresh install for me. After going though the proccess to make a bootable USB install disk (from an old ipod) I use easy transfer to backup my personal settings, and install the OS.
Upon starting it I saw (as expected) none of the Utilities were there. (Normally I uninstall all the utilites, but in this case a couple were worth having. Eco mode etc) I navigated to the Windows.old/Program Files/Toshiba (according to plan) where i thought the installers for these util were. A quick survay before had indicated that to be true, unfortunatly my quick glance through a couple coinicidentally got only the few that had installers there - most of them didn't.
Right now I'm rolling back to factory settings, Anyone got any clues as to how I can back up this software?
