comment Windows PE Recovery CD with explorer shell
Thank you for the wonderful solution to the question I asked. I tried it out today and was able to get all the tools I needed working properly. I looked through the info and was glad to see it didnt appear to change the pe licencing like dart does so I will be able to use it.

I take that back I believe DART requires software assurance or enterprise licencing.

adding the ability to use the standard windows explorer ui to move and open files is a bonus but not the main issue. Many programs use calls to the explorer.exe api in order to create windows to browse the file system. any thing from office file save as to the browse buttons in things like unstopible copier. if you cause one of those dialog boxes to be called you either get a blank window or nothing happens. like how chm files dont work in win2000 if you tear out ie because they are just webpages stored on your hdd for help files.

if other propritary software was not used i could easily use a linux rescue disk but unfortunatly there are other things involved making it a need to use a pe invironment. winpe 3 aka windows7 pe is what i am using right now for the base. DART is not free you need a ultimate? or enterprise licence to use it legally.

you can probably also moutnt the vmdk in a mannter that would allow the image software to directly read it from the host jsut depends on how the image software is.

comment Minimal backup for Windows 7 system recovery
forgot to mention 1 thing. The full backups will keep any annoying quarks to your system as well. If you have the system just the way you like it and theres no annoying bugs etc its great. but if theres this one program you always have to open a specific file run a specific button ... and then start using it as normal that will also be brought along with every thing else. depending on how complex your setup is and how specific your tastes are you may also do well with a full image at the time it works perfect and then reinstall data and newer apps from there.
