I regret that I cannot help the questioner with his or her problem.
Question 1: is anybody willing to help me to start a new topic?
I am interested in using Comodo Disc Inscription Inscription software on my Dell laptop with operating system Windows XP.
For backup I am using a Seagate Free Agent Pro external drive.
Naturally I would like to be able to do my backups and possible restorations from the external drive back to my laptop in the simplest manner possible.
