I do not want to clear this, not just now, anyway - I am very
interested in using this archive to create a CD from time to time in
order to allow me to install and update PCs of several friends who
have only a very slow dialup internet connection. If I can do this it
will be important for me (and them).
Thoughts rushing on - I guess that if they have apps installed which I
do not have, the relevant updates will not be found on my machine (?)
If so this is a minor issue for me.
Am I on the right lines here?
