You were probably reading the title, and thinking omg just use the recovery console, and bob's your uncle, out spits two DVDs.... ... Well its an Acer One netbook, with no optical drive. Acer's recovery console tells me I need to make backups (which is obvious as a HD failure would kill our OS), but its only option is to use a optical drive. So, the challenge (I've "bing.co.uk" and got nowhere!), is how on earth do I make two DVDs with the data without a) an internal optical drive, or b) an external one. I'm not prepared to purchase an external one just to do this one job as I have no other use for one. What I've tried so far: 1. Sharing my PCs DVD RW drive and mapping it on the netbook (which ends up with a folder and thus doesn't work...) 2. checking settings to see if I could make ISO's instead - No go there too. 3. I've even tried using a combination of my E-SATA dock, but the connections are the wrong way around to run my PC's DVD RW drive via USB (which would have given me an external DVD RW). It really shouldn't be this difficult to make OS backups, and there must be another way of doing this backup without resorting to spending £40+ on a new external DVD RW drive just to do it. PLEASE help! lol.
