Does your PC have a DVD burner?

Are you familiar with USB thumb drives? They look similar to a BIC cigarette lighter. Ten bucks for a small one is all you'd need.

You can back up your pictures to either DVD or USB thumb drive.

You can reinstall using either DVD or USB thumb drive. DVD is probably a bit simpler. You can buy a pack of 5 at Walmart for a few bucks.

Ever burned a DVD disc??

How to reformat and reninstall Windows 7 Home Premium WITHOUT disk?
My laptop didn't come with an OS disk. I have 56GB out of 250, and honestly I don't know where it all went. Is there any way to reinstall without a disk? I'm not too big into torrenting things like this, but if its the only way I guess I would have to.
