Chapter 2. Starting and Quitting Windows... > Protecting Yourself with a Startup D...

Protecting Yourself with a Startup Disk

A startup disk can help you recover data from your hard disk when Windows will not start. The startup disk starts your computer in DOS mode even when Windows will not start. You can then use DOS commands, such as COPY, to copy or access important data files.

If you didn't take advantage of the opportunity to create a startup disk during Windows 98 installation, you can create a startup disk at any time. Always make multiple startup disks and test them to make sure they give you access to your hard drive.
