buy a hard disk (blank) the same se physically and in capacity as the one in your computer. Set this up to be a second hard disk or as an eternal (USB) hard disk for your computer.
Obtain from the internet a program for clones (of hard disks); create a CD from this; ensure your computer is set to boot from CD first.
Insert the CD into your CD drive. Restart your computer.
Proceed to clone FROM your original hard disk TO your new, blank hard disk. BE CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT CLONE THE BLANK DISK TO THE ORIGINAL DISK ELSE YOU WILL HAVE YOU WILL NOTHING. This could take hours. Your should ensure your PC is not interrupted during this process.
At the end the process you should be left with your original unaltered hard disk, plus an identical copy of it, which can be inserted in place of your original if that goes wrong.

Which Program? There is a difference between Burn and Copy.
Copy means you have a CD or DvD that already has something on it such as a music CD or a movie DvD and you want to copy it. The system normally reads the CD or DvD and copies the contents to disk then asks you to put in a blank CD or DvD to make the copy.
Burn means you have Data Files, Documents or Music that is already on the disk drive and you want to put it on a Cd or DvD. Normally you just put in a blank CD or DvD then either Drop and Drag, Browse or Copy and Paste the files you want on the CD or DvD.
There are several types of blank discs (CD-R, CD-RW). This unit only handles the CD-R discs. Unfortunately, this particular unit is even fussy about the CD-R discs it does accept. Even more unfortunately, there is no way to determine which will be accepted and which will not work. At this point, I can only advise you to try CD-R discs from a different manufacturer.
Read the first review on amazon.com. Same issue I have had.
Sorry and good luck.
Before you Begin
Make sure there is no program runing that has opened any file on the original disk. You cannot run the Disk Copy procedure if any file on the original or destination disks is in use by any program. For example, if you were editing a document in MS Word, saving to the disk in Drive A, and now want to copy it to another disk: FIRST quit the MS Word program, then execute the Disk Copy procedure.
Caveat LectorThis Disk Copy procedure will make an exact copy of the original disk on the copy disk. It will completely overwrite the copy disk, replacing anything on it with the contents of the original (source) disk. That means that if there are any files on the copy (destination) disk before you begin, those files will be destroyed. You might want to take a look at the destination disk before beginning to be sure there's nothing on it you want to save.
Copying a Disk
Double-Click on the My Computer icon on the Desktop. The My Computer window will open.
In the My Computer Window, click once (not the usual double-click!) to select the icon for 31/2 Floppy A:
Click on the File menu and select Copy Disk. The Copy Disk window will open onscreen.
In the Copy Disk window you will see the option:Copy from 3 1/2 Floppy (A:) to 3 1/2 Floppy (A:)Click on the Start button.
A new window will open prompting you to Insert the disk you want to copy from (source disk). Insert the disk and then click on the OK button. The program will begin "reading" the files from this original (source) disk. You can watch the progress in the little "progress bar" in the Copy Disk window.
Once the original disk has been read into memory you'll be prompted toInsert the disk you want to copy to (destination disk)Now remove the original (source) disk from the drive and insert the copy (destination) disk into the drive. The click the OKbutton. You can watch the progress as the computer "writes" to the copy (destination) disk in the Progress bar in the Copy Disk window.
When the copy is completed you'll see a new, small window popup that will report:The copy completed successfullyNow remove that copy (destination) disk. You are finished!
