If you used backup software that includes disaster recovery capability ("single-step restore" or "one-step recovery"), and you used it to create a boot disk containing the restore software that came with the package, it is here that you will be very glad about your decision. Single-step recovery is the simplest way to get your PC back on its feet after a hard disk crash or other calamity.
You need to follow the directions that come with the software itself, since the exact steps to follow can vary with the exact kind of software you used. In general, however, these recovery routines will lead you through the process of restoring the system themselves. The great advantage if you are running in a Windows 95 environment is that you will not have to re-install Windows 95 and deal with the headaches that are involved with restoring within the Windows 95 environment. You will also not have to restore your tape backup software, since the restore facility is on the disk, and (hopefully) the tape backup and restore software itself is on one of your backup media.
