Windows 7: System Recovery Disc

System Recovery Disc

My computer already has the system recovery preinstalled on another drive, but I want to create the discs for it. How would I do it and how many DVDs would I need?

Hello Arpeejajo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

We will need to know the brand and model number of your computer before we will be able to try and help you with this. Each brand and model has their own specific way of doing it.

Hello arpeejajo, welcome to Seven Forums!


Look around in the Windows start menu for an entry similar to this one; it will require less disks using DVDs as opposed to CD for the set and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

@Bare Foot Kid: I went there but wasn't sure what to do next.

@Brink: Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for. I'll post the results within a week or so, because I need to buy some DVDs.
