Sorry to be so basic, but I ran the installation file and it did not create a program icon. I searched for a DiskPatch.exe file but can't find any. I found the program folder in my \Program Files (x86) folder, and tried to run Diskette.exe, but it doesn't recognize my CD drive. I'm running Windows10. How do I run DiskPatch to create a bootable CD? I have no immediate recovery needs and I paid for a license.

Setup created a program group in the start menu called DIY DataRecovery DiskPatch 4. In there, there's programs for creating bootable USB keys and diskettes. There you will also find a htm page on creating a boot CD or DVD. It basically comes down to, browse to the .ISO file in the DiskPatch installation folder (c:\program files (x86)\diydatarecovery diskpatch) and use the CD/DVD burn feature built into Windows 10 to create the CD/DVD (right click ISO > burn ...).

In the DiskPatch program group there's also a manual/user guide and a get started document.

Running DiskPatch from CD/DVD has severe limitations as under DOS you can not just write to a CD or DVD. It means DiskPatch can't create logfiles, nor undo files. Best way to go is to prep a bootable USB key to run DiskPatch from.
