Re: OT: Sound Card question
you guys should check out a program called ghost.
you can backup your system drive bit for bit.
i usually set up a clean install of windows and the software
i use a lot and ghost it. then if something goes haywire,
i just back up any data that has changed and unghost.
it takes far less time than reinstalling everything.
i don't usually need to do this as often as you are talking about, though.
