Not sure if anyway said this about the recovery disk but it is also designed to restore a full HD image (if you made one) of all your programs.
His has to be made and stored in a secondard HD internal or external and can not be on the same HD you have your Win7 nor will it copy to a partition of that same HD. Must be a seperate HD.

I have used this restore and works well. I tested and it totally erases your C: and write the image back to C: in case of a major failure.

Iggy == I have made one. Does it put your system restore point on the disk also?
Thanks,

Win7 Repair CD/DVD links you to System Restore from boot WINRE environment so that you can access all of your restore points if the HD is not completely borked.

Startup repair will also run Sys Restore as it tries it's dozens of tests and applies fixes.

The recovery disk and install DVD are not exactly the same as far as recovery utlities. It will work for most normal problems, but some utilities, such as bootsect.exe, are not on the recovery CD. There may be others, but I did not check.
