It happens to everyone. The system that was working fine one day now won't boot. Be prepared by creating an emergency boot volume of the full, core operating system with Phoenix.

Phoenix can also perform basic complete volume copies (clones) from one drive to another. This product is also ideal for users that have lost their original install media, have a malfunctioning optical drive, or don’t have network access to download a new version of the latest operating system to perform another operating system installation.
