Default simple- hdd backup

im about to reformat the hdd in my friends pc. os is 98se, just wanna check, i don't actually have to use a cloning program like symantec ghost to backup the hdd, restore and still have it boot. i haven't really done much with backups because generally by the time i bother reformatting theres no point in backing up :P

If you format the HD, then you wont have any OS to boot off of.

If you are going to back up files, then burn them onto a CD or something, and then format.
