The utilities in this ZIP file were copied from a "rescue diskette"
created on a system which came with OS/2 preinstalled from IBM. Please
use them with caution and at your own risk.

These Version of BACKUP.EXE and RESTORE.EXE are NOT identical to the
versions found on the original OS/2 2.0 (GA) distribution disks. With the
GA versions, it is not possible to do a full system backup of an OS/2 2.0
system, because important files are skipped during backup.

Use these new versions of BACKUP and RESTORE to perform a complete backup of
an OS/2 2.0 system to optical disk, Bernoulli, or diskettes. Make sure
you use the right versions: if you don't and the GA version of BACKUP
is used, you'll end up with an incomplete backup set!

You'll need a set of OS/2 2.0 startup diskettes with the appropriate
drivers for your backup storage device. The system must then be started
from those diskettes, _not_ from the harddisk. Assuming there's an
optical drive D:, a full system backup of drive C: can then be performed
as follows:

A:\> BACKUP C:\*.* D: /S

To restore the complete backup (again assuming the optical drive has been
assigned the drive letter D) to drive C:

A:\> RESTORE D:\*.* C: /S

Use SETATTR.CMD to reset the file attributes of the OS/2 2.0 system files
back to their original state after the backup/restore. SETATTR assumes
OS/2 is installed in drive C:, because all the systems in our company are
set up that way. Modify the drive letter in SETATTR.CMD to match your
installation, or change the file attributes 'manually' using ATTRIB.
