How to: Backup Diskless Laptop

  1. Hello,

    I recently jumped into the netbook craze and purchased an Asus N10 J A2. I was aware that I would not be able to have a stationary cd drive, and I dont plan on purchasing one right away. My question is, how can I create a usb drive (i can dedicate one to this need) that allows me basically to "factory reset" the hard drive. I dont want to save a bunch of new files, I just want something to go back to in case something wrong happens. I had a rescue disk come with my other laptop that had a cd drive and the backup utility worked flawlessly, stick the cd in, reboot, choose to start over and voila, like when I bought it. Is there any way to do this on a USB drive or even how to do this on a cd drive once I purchase it? Im very new when it comes to creating rescue disks in general =/.
