Disaster Recovery Disks

Disaster Recovery Disks

Hi everyone,

I need to create a recovery disk, as the last 1 was created a long time ago.  It was stored on a single disk.

The manual says you should create a new set if you replace your tape drive, which we did about 6 months ago - the supplier/installer didn't tell me I had to create another disk/disk set.

According to the book / software, there are 4 disks - 3 of which are NT Setup disks.  I have located a set of disks with Replica labels on (official) labelled as follows Boot Disk, Disk 2, Disk 3 and Disk 4.  Are these the disks I put in to get a fresh set of Disaster Recovery disks?  or do I need to take a copy of them?  Do I need any extra disks?

I also have a Stac Replica CD.  Is this what I would use to re-setup the program if needed?  Is this completely separate to the floppy disks?

Your assistance is most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
