Windows 7: Win 7 recovery disk

Win 7 recovery disk

Does the Win 7 recovery disk contain system information that needs to be updated or does it just contain the basic installation information? In other words, do I need to create a new recovery disk on a regular basis to keep the recovery disk sync'd with my current system.

Thanks,

Don

Just the one time recovery disk. Nothing needs to be updated.

Hello donkrafft, welcome to Seven Forums!


As long as the Windows version number remains the same it doesn't need updating, when the newly released Windows 7 SP 1 is added to the current version the version number will change and then another recovery disk will need to be created.


Is the disk created using this tutorial at the link below what you are referring to?
