Windows 7: System Restore Disks: Making Of the Three ?

System Restore Disks: Making Of the Three ?


Boy, do I feel dumb, but-

On my new PC, I made the recommended set of, I believe, 3 Systerm Restore Disks.
Was easy, and went well.

Now at my son's house, and I just can't seem to find the link to make them for his new desktop PC. He's also running W7 Home Premium, 64 Bit.

I seem to remember simply banging into the Search bar "Restore Disks" and the link to making them came up. Doesn't seem to on his ?

Where do I go, or pull up, the link that makes and walks you through the process of making these 3 Reststore disks, please ?

Not all computer models have the utility to make Restore Disks. Check the manual to make sure, or call Tech Support.

If not use the Backup Center to create a Win7 System Image saved externally which will reimage the HD (or a replacement) from the Win7 DVD in 15 minutes. You won't have all the factory bloatware, either.
