Create System Recovery Disc For Windows 7

Most new computers these days come with windows installed. Some may come with a recovery disc but they are bad news as most recovery disks will delete all your files and restore your computer to the state it was in when you first purchased it.
If Windows 7 goes wrong, you can attempt a repair, at boot up, to see if the problem can be fixed...
If you don’t have access to a Windows 7 disc, you can create a system recovery disc. The system recovery disc cannot be used to install Windows, but it can be used to fix common problems that prevent Windows from booting.
Please Note: This disc cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista.

To create a system recovery disc, do the following:
1. Press the Start buttom.
2. Type Backup (as shown In Figure).
3. Select Backup and Restore.
4. In the left column, click Create a system recovery disc.
5. Select your DVD drive and click Create disc (as figure below).
6. Wait for the disc to burn.
7. Test the disc by rebooting your PC with the disc in the drive. Boot from the optical drive and ensure the disc works.
8. Save the recovery disc in a safe place.
