    Using the ntbackup GUI in XP/2003 you can create an Advanced System Recovery
    floppy, which should help in rebuilding the system from scratch in case of a
    disaster. The procedure create files named asr.sif and asrpnp.sif , among
    others, in the directory %windir%\repair, wiles are then copied to the

    However the creation of these files can only be done by the GUI Wizard, I
    didn't found any way to create these files by command line.

    Even playing around with two executables I found around (asr_fmt.exe and
    asr_ldm.exe) I'm not been able to automatize the creation of the ASR Floppy

    Any of you did?

    Thank you.
