I have recently reinstalled my entire FS2002 and add-ons to reduce clutter, which as many of you can imagine takes a long time. This is especially the case when there are loads of mesh, flightplans, AIRACs, aircraft and liveries, you get my point!
I never want to have to do this again so I collected the INSTALLED files only - not original CD material;
I've managed to pop it all into one massive archive (CAB) which will split over DVDs, with a supplementary set of registry backups for the various add-ons and FS itself.
As I can account for every payware item with an original CD and the rest is freeware, am I breaking any laws in burning it off for MYSELF ONLY as a timesaver?
The way I see it, people back up systems to a secondary HDD all the time as a matter of course. What I want to do is no different except for the type of media I'm using.
