    Default Crafters companion cd Roms

    I have just got out my Christmas stash and thought I would use some of my cd roms for the ATC swap
    They fit the bill as they have either never been used or not for years
    I came across a crafters companion one from 2014 still in its wrapper and thought I could use that and also make the Granddaughter's Christmas cards
    But it says to back up your pc before used as crafters companion take no responsibility for damage to your pc
    I have cd roms from 2008 that don’t have this warning and have used them without any issue
    Scared to use it now

    Probably being over cautious and keen to disclaim liability. It's a long time since I used any of my old Crafters Companion cd roms but I'm sure I never backed up before installing any of them and they never caused a problem.

    Most CDs used to say this. Which cd is it LJ? I probably have it and will try it in my desktop PC if you want.

    Just checked and I don't have the snowman one. I've used CDs since I started crafting in 2005 and never had them cause an issue on my PCs ranging from brand new ones to ancient PCs.
